I am trying to create a new titleblock so I go to FILE>NEW>FAMILY> and I select the 24x36 border thats comes shipped with Revit.What I get is a box to start with that is 24" x 36". Now with just this, if I zoom in/out or try to navigate through the drawing it takes about 5 seconds for each zoom or "refresh" I guess. When I am drawing normally (not creating a family) then the speed is OK. Once I get into creating a family then Revit slows to a crawl. At first I thought it was because I was importing an AutoCAD dwg. I was trying to insert my office border (dwg format) and noticed it was slow. Then I tried creating a new family and just with the 4 default "title block" lines its slow as hell to zoom. Restarted the program but never did a full re-boot. Dont think that has anything to do with it. Maybe the specs of my comp. is not up to par with the software requirements. Running on: Using Revit Building 8 Demo (purchased the license but havent received a activation code yet.) P4 1.8GHz 1GB ram ATI Radeon 9700 Pro (128MB) Thanks! Post edited on 2005-06-30 21:46:53

I have a 1.8 Ghz machine at home and run Revit just fine. When it comes to titleblocks, I would strongly recommend not importing any AutoCAD drawing. It would be best to simply link the AutoCAD drawing in, pick or draw Revit linework on top of it, use a JPEG for your logo and use standard Windows fonts. When done with the AutoCAD drawing, you need to remove it from the family by using "manage links" and deleting any reference to the ACAD drawing. I suspect the slowness you are experiencing is somehow related to AutoCAD. Even your logo in AutoCAD if it contains a lot of hatching insead of solids can slow you down. HTH Tom

Thats what I figured so instead of importing I linked it in... actually did both and it was still slow. I did however have some hatching going on in my logo so I tried deleting it. Anyway I painstakingly drew my new border and deleted removed the linked image. Its fine now.

So you wouldnt recommend bringing in my office border from AutoCAD and exploding it? Btw, if you exploded an imported Acad dwg, would it convert to revit lines if it were only lines in autocad?

What about a pline with a width imported from Acad... would that cause problems in Revit?

Cant seem to find the "manage links" option. Where can I find it? [nevermind I found it in the File menu]

Thanks for the tips... much appreciated!
