RAC 2013

We have created the following scenario:

Our goal is to use teh Site Model as the one-stop-shop for site stuff. We will link in various files to create our grades and landscape. Some will be printed (like the landscape), others for the creation / development of the topography.

Currently, my site model is linked into the building model. The site model contains a CAD link showing the Landscape design. I have set up a specific view (DP00 SITE) in the Site Model such that the visibility graphics presents the site elements as I want them.

In the Building Model, the visibiliity graphics in the Site Plan view is set to show the building and site model as we want. But when I set Linked View for the Site Model to show the DP00 SITE, elements from the parking level below (in the buiilding model) are now visible through the slab. This is the problem.

We want to see the Site Plan - the topo, landscape and the main floor plan of my building, including the ramp down to the parking below.

As I investigate, I find that if I hide the linked Site Model, the elements from the parking level below also disappear - as if these elements were a part of the site model. When I disable Linked View, everything looks fine, but I loose my landscape design (CAD link in Site Model).

Current Settings for both models 

  - All floors are visible and not transparent.

  - View Range settings:   

  • CUT= 1200M BOTTOM=ASSOC. LEVEL offset 0
  • BELOW (unlimited has same result)

Must I link the Landscape design to my Building Model instead?

Why not try the seperate CAD link?
