I am looking for some info on how others are using MEP with Architecture. I am drawing in both to utilize the speed of MEP when making HVAC and Fire suppression. I have not found a good way to bring the two together. I tried to start drawing in my "arch" file (file created in Revit Architecture) through Revit MEP but all of the auto options were gone. So I created a new file in MEP and imported my "arch" file. This worked better but I am still not happy with the results. It is difficult to find clashes and edit them when working with links. I know there has to be a better way. If anyone has some experiance with this let me know.

firstly, you are doing it correctly, we are an mep firm that works with Architect and Structural engineers that only use revit, you have to link them together, you are still able to do the clash detection but since another thing we do is coordination we use navisworks, i find the collision detection in revit to be to time consuming and far more difficult to use.

there are a couple white papers about the suggested workflows and also the project setups out there and on this site.

Hello Eddieborader, We have a project that consists of integrated buildings. I've created each buildings in Revit Architecture separately and made another file  where I linked each buildings for MEP Revit.

Now, one of their problems were they have dificulties detecting clash detections between MEP and the linked Architecture elements (walls, beams, columns). One of the solutions that we can do were to Bind all linked architectural files. But the problem is that the process is too large for the file/computer to handle, and the program crashes. Not to mention that whenever we bind every linked file, revit prompts that it will delete repeated instances etc..

I hate to say it but that is exactly why we use navisworks manage. I believe you can get a 30 day trial from ADSKs website
