I'm using Revir 2013, and I have a problem when reloading a conceptual mass to the project file:

  • I create say, a cube in conceptual massing, load it into the the project and insert at the desired point.
  • Then, say, I create another cube next to the original cube in the conceptual mass and reload.
  • Once reloaded the position of the original box has moved.  It seems that Revit is recalculating the the insertion point on a a centre to centre rather than the original origin point. 

Any one got any ideas, this is driving me nuts?

That is odd behaviour. The original two reference planes in the Mass family template 'define the origin' of the family. That is the base point 0,0,0 of the family.

 

I tested your process by adding in 2, 3, 4 more mass extrusions to the original mass family, reloaded it, overwrite,  and nothing moves. Just the new masses show up.

 

Something you are doing or missing. Upload your mass family. . . . .
