Hi,

My name is Damien. firstly, let me say I'm not sure if I'm starting this thread in the correct place so I appologise if I have. My question is regarding collaborating on a revit project that involves linking a structural revit model into an Architectural model. I recently joined an architectural practice that is collaborating on a project with a structural engineering practice.

the model we have created has linked the structural model into our architectural model and we have placed walls onto to the structural model using the structural model as the core of our wall family. So basically our wall sits on the face of the linked models walls. Is this the correct way to go about working with a linked structural file?

Secondly, i also noticed that when we try to host a door or window file, the family cuts through our wall but does not cut through the linked structural wall behind. is there a way around this? Is it possible to cut through the wall of the linked file for a window or door or is it just not possible to host a file onto the wall of a linked revit file?

Sorry if this is confusing. Any help what so ever would be much appreciated! Thanks allot.

 

Damien

I think you need to read up on worksharing and collaborating.  The way you are doing it is not correct.  I'm not sure what you mean by you have your walls on the face of the structural walls.  Either structural does the walls or you do, not both.  If you need to you can copy monitor the structural walls. 

Windows will not cut a linked model.  Read up on copy/monitor also.
