Hi, I am trying to set up a typical wall section project for our office so that the common elements of a wall section can be quickly added to a new wall section view, (studs, insulation, roof system notes... the basics)  My plan is to use "insert from file -> 2D elements" to bring the detail components into the wall section almost like how you would bring in a block or a previous .dwg file in cad.  The problem i am having is that when i insert the 2d elements, my studs are all over the place and no where near where they should be on the wall; this is also true for my sheathing.  We have ran into a similar issue with detail groups made up of studs and other "line based detail components".  Has anybody else had this issue, or dose anybody know how to make the "line based detail components" stay put when the group is inserted?

Thank you

I realize this is an old post, but did you ever find a solution to the problem?

Wow this is an old post,  I don't even work at the same firm that I had that issue with.  I did however work for a short time with a firm that solved this problem by creating detail components of all their detail drawings.  It was interesting because not only did it make it posible to use the same detail in multiple projects, but it also drastically reduced the file size.  It was tricky to get use to at first but the basic concept is to create a detail component family and draft the detail in that family using other detail components such as studs and gwb just like you would in cad or with in the project.  Then when the family is loaded into the project, just position it in the correct location in the drawing and you have your detail drawn as a family.  Editing is done with "edit family" and when changes are made "load into project".  It is also nice because you can load it back into the projcet with the canges but not save the family, that way a typical version can be saved as the original family file and then customized per project with out effecting the original.  The negative to this is that you can't really use the model as an underlay while drafting, but seeing as how architects and drafters have been doing that for a long time before Revit, it really isn't much of a trade off.

Sorry if this is hard to read, I have been laid off for a while and haven't been using Revit enough to stay fluent in the correct use of words like family, component, detail component, and detail family.  I hope this makes sense to you though
