Yesturday I was able to insert a CAD Link and alingn it to my model.  I had the workplane of my view set and chose manual-center for my insertion.  Everything was great.

Now, when I follow the same procedure, I have to left-click, anywhere or an element, the CAD link is placed God knows where in the model.

Any thoughts?

Greg

Greg,

Using the "Manual - Center to Center" option means that you are placing the imported object by defining a location point for the center of the inserted content. (Your left click determines the center of the .dwg) This means the import location will change when the .dwg content changes.

Often .dwg files contain elements extremely far apart, This can be a problem when attempting to insert in this manner as revit will look at the entire contents to determine the center.

Try going to a view that does not have a crop region to see if your .dwg content is floating in space somewhere.
