Is there an easy way to delete reference planes from an architectural model.  I work for an MEP firm and everytime we import the architectural model into our model, there are hundreds of reference planes.  Turning them off in VG settings doesn't work and you can't pick one, right click and have the program select all of the planes.  We have been deleting them everytime we get a new model and I feel like there's just got to be a faster way of getting rid of these reference planes.

What do you mean " Turning them off in VG settings doesn't work"?  You can turn off any category in a linked model seperatly from your settings.  VG / Revit Links tab / display settings - custom - now turn off the proper category in the linked model.

That is what we are doing.  We go through VG settings and select the revit link turn options to custom and turn them off in EVERY view but this is time consuming and when we receive an updated Arch. model we have to repeat the whole process all over again.  So I guess my question is "is there a way to hide the elements one time and they stay hidden even though the revit link is updated regularly"? We update the model about once a week and it gets old having to go through VG settings every time to solve the issue.

Thanks!

I don't think you understand.

First - You don't hide the individual items, you turn off that category ONLY FOR THE LINK

 

Second - Once, you turn off the category for the link in a view, it is done for good - unless you change it. 

 

Third - When you update a model DON'T REMOVE THE LINK! - Simply reload from - the latest model (and it can be changed in name and location)

 

Fourth - It appears that you may not be using VIEW TEMPLATES - If not, then you should be.  You can set up a view template to do this process for all similar views and you don't have to do it then for every view - just apply the template!

WWHub, thanks for the help.  We figured out steps 1-3, but it hadn't occured to us to modify our template!  Thanks for the tip!
