When I export Revit drawings to Auto CAD I'm having problems getting the Auto CAD drawings back into Revit. Nothing comes into Revit and if it does then its too large. I need help. Someone call a medic.

Revit automatically exports my drawings into AutoCad as model space/ paper space. I add what ever I need to add into model or paper space and save the file. When I try to import that file back into Revit nothing shows up. One of my questions is when I import the .dwg back into Revit should I import it into a sheet or for example a floor plan? Should I do my work in paper space or model space? If my scale of the Revit sheet that I export is 1/4"=1'-0" when I import the .dwg back into Revit if anything shows up at all it's too large, even though I'm using 1/4"=1'-0" in ACAD.

I would export to dwg from a view not a sheet, make your changes in model space, and import into views, not sheets. That should take care of the scale issue. You might check your crop region settings if you don't see anything when you import as well.
