I'm using Revit Architecture 2009 

I've created 3 types of bungalows, each in a separate revit file.  I have several problems.First one is that I want to now populate the 3 types, copy and rotate, all over a site plan.  However, when I group the bulidings and try to rotate them, elements in the group start jumping around.  I'm assuming theres some kind of contraint but I cant find any.  all the objects that are moving have no associated work plane or level.How do I fix this?

2nd problem is that when the buildings are linked into the siteplan instead of binded, exporting to dwg to bring into 3dmax applies one material to everything.  i would have to bind the buildings together if i want to materials to come through, but then my elements start jumping around again.  Why don't the materials come through to Max when the revit files are nested?

3rd problem is that if I wanted to work with linked revit files, how do I share revit materials between each of the 3 buildings which are each in a separate file so that they would all use the same material set?  having them all with the same set would help when trying to adjust materials in Max.

I've wasted enough time already on this.  I think I'm just going to have to populate the buildings and build the site in Max instead of trying to build the whole model in Revit.  Attached are examples of this problem.

the first two questions i don't have an answer to, but for the third, regarding "shared materials," try using "Transfer Project Standards" in the File pulldown menu.

"the first two questions i don't have an answer to, but for the third, regarding "shared materials," try using "Transfer Project Standards" in the File pulldown menu."

Transfer Project Standards will move all materials from one file to the other one.

I would not use groups - just linked files.  Have one site plan and bungalow A-2, bungalow A-1, bungalow B-1, B...x where bungalow A-1 & A-2 are just copies of the same file but linked, placed, rotated separately.
