Have you ever tried linking the Autodesk Advanced Models Together ?


If you have then you are probably like most in that you can't get them to line up, it doesn't work, you try everything possible convinced you know what you are doing and no matter what, it never, ever, ever comes together properly.


Am I right ?


There's a logical reason for that. These models are simply not meant to come together. And you'll notice that the files themsleves have the other discipline elements actually local and not linked which is NOT how it's done. The Mechanical model NEVER contains architectural elements. The architectural model should be 'linked in' . . . and that's where the confusion starts, headed up by no one other than Autodesk themselves. 


The origins of the models have been tamperd with and the spcing of the grids and levels ARE NOT THE SAME !! So in other words these 3 files where never actually meant to be linked together. BUT WE ALL ASSUME THEY SHOULD. And . . . they don't and won't . . . until you read the blog post below and download the cleaned up files provided.


This blog post should answer your question on linking the autodesk provided advanced models.

I had never tried to link the sample projects together.  It is moronic that these files can't be used to demonstrate the Revit linking process ... but the we have seen similar thought processes on other issues.


When I first started reading this, I was afraid you were pointing out issues we would have with our models.  I am still working at getting our users to use shared coordinates and survey/project locations.  << After all these years....
