Hello. Is there a way to turn off the annotation in our struc consultants rev dwg when we load them into our project. we only want the struc information...beams columns L angles etc..not there levels, grids etc.

Currently we are loading the struc then going into view graphics revit links custom and turning off the annotation categories for each section or call out view. with 140 callouts that is alot of tedium

cheers

 A little more clarification please. I import the structural into a view template and get rid of all annotation that we do not want?

You don't import into a view template.  You assign a view template to your views.

 

Are you working in your view with linked model or linked views?  These are different.

 

For your model views, just set up a view template that manges the linked files ... yes - turns off all annotations, plus whatever elese you need.

You are confusing me because you are using the term dwg.  You said "rev dwg" initially so I assumed you really meant views from a linked Revit structural project.  Now you simply say "dwgs".  You don't say CAD imports but linked ... so are you talking about linked DWG's or linked REVIT?

 

View templates are just that.... a template that controls a view.  It can control linked items in that view but otherwise has nothing to do with linking CAD or Revit.  So this statement is also confusing.  Or did you mean you gave the engineers some sort of file to use for their DWG's and you are calling this a template?

For randomly replying about the thread post, is there a free toaster the higher your rating is on this site?

If I started MY post with our struc consultants rev dwg why would you assume that 2 posts later on the same thread I was talking about autoCAD dwgs? This is a well intended forum but I find that most of your replies are pompous, arrogant and thin. I try to be as clear as I can with my posts. I don't need you to point out how confusing they are. If you don't understand where I am coming from stop replying.

Because while dwg might be confused with the type of file as opposed to as you seem to use the term as a contraction for drawings. It is common on this forum to use dwg's meaning a file type which for Revit models not drawings would have a file type of .rvt. Where AutoCAD drawings would have a file type of .dwg.
