Hello, Recently when I updated the architect's link into our MEP revit model, I noticed that the architectural model is 9’ 8.125” lower than it used to be in previous versions. I’m still fuzzy on why this occurred but I detached and attempted some solutions including “relocate project,” “acquire coordinates” etc. The two solutions I see are:1. Modify our work. For me this means rehosting a lot of equipment and redrawing a lot of ductwork and piping since there are constraints that prevent me from moving it all. This is a lot of work for us but our model will link in nicely with other disciplines when they do so.2. Move the arch link. I can click on the arch link and use the move command to move it up 9’ 8.125”—for the views this works pretty flawlessly and it seems to maintain the position even when I update the arch link. We’ll likely have to do the same for the struct link when we get a new one and we’ll need to re-monitor the link. The downside with this is that any combined views may look offset and other disciplines will similarly have to move our work when they link in our stuff. If the architect links in our model to theirs it will be off. Any suggestions for remedying this? Thanks

First, you should have copy/monitored the levels.... then everything should have adjusted in you model when you accepted the level changes.


Second.  Don't remove the link and don't unload?   Yo may have to just do your option 2 by aligning the architect's first level to yours.
