I imorted a drawing from AutoCAD that had certain layer turned off. I initially placed thsi drawing on my ground floor plan Revit automatically took on teh default layer setting of teh AutoCAD drawings with all teh correct layers turned on and off.

When I then move this AutoCAD drawing to a different level all teh previously hidden layers on teh AutoCAD drawing show. I know I can go to teh VG menu and manually turn off the unwanter layers but I want to know if there is a simple setting to say that the AutoCAD layer setting should be retained?

 

Thanks

I ran into this issue in the past but I don't think there is any logic to how the layer is  on/off when they get copy from one level to another

you can create a VG template with that layers set. Then use the underlay to show up that autocad file (dont move it). When you finish using info from that cad, DELETE it.
