I am trying to export my model into AutoCAD, but need a way to regulate what layer my CHWS, CHWR, HWS, and HWR end up on. 

 

Read this Wiki help for the background, in case the reader is not familiar:

 

http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Revit/enu/Community/Tips_and_Tricks/Import%2c_Export%2c_Layers/Export_Pipes%2f%2f%2f%2fPipe_Fittings_to_different_DWG_Layers_basing_on_their_system

 

In step 4, it says "add System Name".

 

I don't name my pipes by system name or system type.  I've created duplicates of various different pipe types, always renaming them by CHWS or CHWR, etc...and also the same for fittings.  So in my VG, in filters, I create filters that pick up stuff by TYPE NAME.  I check off pipes, flex pipes, fittings, etc.

 

I want these pipes and ducts and etc etc to get exported into AutoCAD and retain their colors, pipe type name, line thickness, etc...

 

Anyone have any leads?
