I am currently on a project where we are rennovating two structures on the same complex in which we have placed in two different .rvt files. As the modeling is nearing completion, sheets need to be set up for both structures as one packaged project. I have seen that many have posted as having the same problem but have still not found a solution to my impending problem.

I need a way to coordinate the sheets in a single project browser and print as a single set. I see that when I link the files together it is simply importing the second building as a "group" without linking sheets, views, etc. Is revit capable of linking sheets when linking models? If it is possible I would almost rather have the sheets linked rather than the model so as to not affect elevations and floor plans.

 Thanks for the help in advance.

As far as I know, you cannot link the sheets specifically. You have a couple options though. One is to create mock, blank sheets to get your title block correct in each file and then print  from the seperate files (this isn't much help, I know). The other is to set up views in one of the projects that display the drafting work you have done in the linked file's views and keep all your sheets in one or the other of the files while modeling and drafting work can be done seperately. If you go to Visibility Graphics and the Revit Links tab, you can click the button under Display Settings that says "By Host View" by default. In the next dialogue box you can check off the By Linked View radio button and then select a view from your linked project to display the detail elements from uner the Linked View list. You will still have to set up views and place them on sheets, but if you have planned ahead for this, it should work well. HTH

The easist method is part of what JRMello has said... Publish you title and index from one file using dummy sheets to create your drawing list then print the remaining from the other file.

 

Linking in the views is a pain...

Actuallly that was very helpful. It will take some more practice on it but if I put in the work upfront it will save time when finishing this project. Thanks for the quick reply.
