What I would like to do is to be able to copy and mirror an Elevation View without having to copy/ mirror the actual model elements.  This would be useful for our firm to study building elevations for a multi-unit development where units that are mirrored exact replicas  occur without having to update multiple models  as we develop the design – we would simply create a view of the building elevation we are studying then duplicate the view and mirror it, then place the 2 views side by side on a sheet.

 

I don’t think this feature (mirroring a view) is something that Revit can do, but if you know any tricks let me know.  I realize that the only way to do this might be to link the model to another file and try to mirror it there.  I'd appreciate any tips!  Thanks.

you could also export the original elevation as a DWG then import it into a new elevation view and mirror the cad work.  If you linked this DWG, then any time you change the original elevation you could just save over the DWG and reload the mirrored view to update the changes.

Revit is a model program, not CAD.  Tom's answer is what you will have to do.

Why not group your facade, and mirror the group? You'll still have a larger model, but you only have to set it up once and edit either one of the groups to reflect the change on either side.

I just feel that over time, exporting, linking, and reloading will only be a waste of time.

Great Revit karma will come to you for answering my many questions.
