Hello all, I am having an issue with exporting layouts in to AutoCAD.  I am trying to export a mechanical piping plan view in to an AutoCAD format, only every time I do this any pipe fittings that are in a vertical pipe run are pulled out of there location and placed 50 to 60 feet out side of my drawing.  When I select the fitting (in the AutoCAD format) it shows the snap points are in the correct location but the actual fitting itself is out is space some where.  Thank you for any help you may be able to give...

There could be something wrong with the pipe fitting family maybe.

Hi there, you don't say what version of Revit you use, but, if you use Revit 2009 did you upgrade to the Web Update? see image attach. it solves many issues and Export is one of them...

Ok well I have another problem now, I tryed to download the update, but the update stated that it was for both AutoCAD 2009 and Revit 2009.  My problem is I am running AutoCAD 2008 instead of 2009, and the update will not install because it can't find a valid copy of AutoCAD 2009 on my computer.  Any ideas... Again thank you for all your help.

Do you download the "Revit Architectural 2009 (exe - 490 MB)"? and the file appears is "WU1_RAC2009.EXE"?

i THINK WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO INSTALL IS TO REVIT ARCHITECTURAL SUITE 2009, is not that if you don't have SUITE...

No the update I am trying to install is for AutoCAD 2009 and Revit Structure 2009 not the one for Revit Arch.
