I have a Revit structural, and arch model. my company did the mechanical pipe and duct systems throughout the building in CAD. now i have to bring everything back into Revit. I have openned a new project file, linnked in the structural for now, because it is fairly large, and now i have linked in the CAD drawing. The orientation is way off, therefore i believe the best way to go about it would be to acquire coordinates from the CAD drawing and bring in the other links using the shared coordinates of the linked in DWG. I've gone over importing shared coordinates time and time again, and i guess its just a hard concept for me to grasp completely, can someone please enlighten me to the situations, and the differences between acqiuring, publishing, and shared coordinates, and thier exaxt function and behaivors. i think i got it, but on the topic of orientation i'd like to be 100% confident. Please and thank you.

This is a very hard process to understand and it can be messed up.

I'm actually trying to find a little more detail on the linking process with shared coordinates. This video is really informational as far as prject base point and survey point and how levels and elevations react to those points. but i'm having difficulties with the acqiuring and publishing points with links. then using them later to work with one anothwer making the linking command smooth and easy, because these files take forever to move, and import, so i really want to be sure everything comes in in the right place and be very confident about thier orientation withink the project. Am i making a little more sense on what kind of explanation i'm looking for?

Do i haver the right thought process so far? 

When working with two RVTs:

i open a new "host project" link in the first file most likely the site or my case the structural. Go to manage tab, select acqiure coordinates, then select on the link and acqiure the points from the link and reconcile.

then i can link in my CAD files to my host project using "auto shared coordinates" and the files should reference my project file, that is referenceing the same coordinates as the strucural model i acqiured coordinatesd from, and place it in the correct location in the building. Carrect? Or am i missing something?

Before thinking about shared coordinates, you really needed to understand the project / survey points. 

 

I think your close to understanding but the HELP covers it exactly:
