Almost everytime I link a CAD file into revit, I get the 2 Mile Error. The CAD file gets exploded, purged, audited, centered on 0,0, the whole nine yards, and I still get this error message. There should be a way around this or a better way to link/insert files into revit.

out of curiosity, i'm assuming your getting the file from someone else, do you copy the lines out of one cad file and then paste it into a fresh one be fore you link it?

Usually what I do is delete all xref files, unlock, thaw and turn on all layers, delete unnecessary lines that may exist way off in model space, audit, purge layers, regen, re-check zoom extents, then make a block out of the drawing selecting left to right. I'll open the block file, and make sure there isn't something I missed, then link or insert the block file into my revit model.

I think the problem is where it gets inserted, possibly 2 miles away from the model. If I could choose my origin using a point (like in CAD) then select where I want the link to be located in the model, things would be alot smoother. I have used the manual options when inserting the file as well.

This is probably not it, but it's easy to check.  Check your insertion base point in your CAD file.

Type "INSBASE" and set it to (0,0,0).  Revit might be trying to use this point when inserting.  Let us know if this works.

Hey mate, I've had this issue before. It happens when you get your import scales way out of whack. Generally I scale the cad file to the units I will use them in Revit (millimeters for me) then when importing I select the same units on the Link Cad Formats box. This way your importing on a 1:1 basis & should never have the problem again. Smile
