Hello everyone,

I am developing a multi story apartment building, where the apartment type changes per floor, and they subject to change in the future. In order not change the apartment type for every floor everytime, I decided to develop a RVT file for each apartment type, and link each apartment into a master project file. 

 

Here is the structure:

 

Apartment Type Shell --> Apartment Type (A,B,C...) --> Buildings Complex

 

Unfortunately after importing the RVT into the master project, it is always associated with Level 1 on the master project, and I cant change the association of it.

 

So when I create a schedule all of the apartments appear on Level 1...

 

I hope I explained my self well enough.

 

Thank you all for your future advise.

You would have to have a seperate rvt file for each instance....

You would be better off to have these as groups for model purposes - not annotation.  Note and annotate the apartments in the seperate file.  Group all of the model components then copy that group to clipboard and paste wherever you need them in the main model.

WWHub thanks for your reply,

 

It seems to be the only way. I don't understand why aren't there options regarding the association of the link RVT to the model. I am using Revit 2011 Architecture. Has it changed in 2012 or 2013?

Thank again.

Nothing has changed, this is the way it has always been.
