I am attempting a dry run of a future project to be done in our office.  It will be basic remodel work in 22 multifamily units on a single site.  I have set up a model for each unit and have created a site model in which to link all the units to.  What i can not seem to do is also bring in the sheets that were created within the individual units.  It is my understanding that i am to work in each model sepratley then link the files to the site. Is this wrong? Also it was my understanding that I could import the sheets that were created(ie..sections, elevations and plans)in the individual models and link them to the site model so that all my sheets were located in a single file instead of having to open all the files individually, but each time i attempt to import a view everything is avaiable to me except the sheets that i would like to import...I appear to be at a complete loss here and reading thru the revit users guide doesnt explain how to/or if even possible to do what i am attempting...Can someone here help or atleast point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance....

It looks like you have some miss-information.

 

The recommendation of separate models linked into one site is for overall documentation - not individual documentation.   Just so that you can show the relationship between buildings and exterior documentation.

 

As you have done, you should document in the model where the model elements reside.  Keeping these models separate allows you rotate them for better documentation and alleviates problems with levels and grids.   Although you could link these sheets into a "master project", that would be a very time consuming and awkward process.  Instead, you can list these sheets in the master model for an overall document list but you will still have to print each "project" separately.

You can only create a Master drawing list in the Site plan file really, this drawing list schedule then shows up all the info from the other files using the 'Include Elements From Linked Files' option under the 'Fields' tab.

You can reference other view from your linked models using the 'Override Graphics in View' command, but for the number of details etc you may be creating this would just be doubling the work if it's already complete in the links.

However, to do this place a section in the linked (site) file in line with a detail section already created in the linked (house) file & go to the section. Select the RVT link & use override graphics in view (category) on the RVT link (this is the only option) & overide it by selecting the name of view you wanted to emulate already set up in the linked model - this should then show the detail etc from the linked view, provided you got the section in the right place in the first instance!

It's a lot of work.

In Revit 13 you can now tag items in a linked file so potentially you could just do all your detailing in the Site file & not in the linked house files. I suppose it depends on what & how you are detailing.
