Hi All,

i have a situation in Revit.

i have a model (let's call it 3D Model) and all my views, sheets & schedules in it.

now, the client wants 3D model to contain only model, that means he dosent want sheets in it.

he wants us to link into another revit file and have all sheets there, using 3D Model views (and he calls it Extraction file ie:2D)

I know the only way i can do this is, link the 3d model into a clean revit file, copy monitor all levels, and create the views based on those levels and in VG - Revit Links - custom - view (recall it from 3D linked model) drag those views into sheets......etc.

here, i want to mention, i have all sheets , views already existing in 3D Model & now i got to go through creating all that again.

is there any other way to kind-off import all the views (3d) into another model or am i left with the way i think is the only way.

it's a huge project, min. 200Sheets in it  Sad

pls. help

If the plan is to annotate, tag, dimension, detail and sheet elements from a linked file you are going to run into many problems. It's a BAD BAD idea.

i guess you did not get it completely, sheets extraction file is for sheets only, when you unlink or switch off all links nothing is shown. just a ER.

Maybe I'm not understanding fully, but couldn't you just link your existing model into a new file? Then he would have  only the 3D information in that new file, and could use VG to control what is showing.

What is the purpose of breaking out the 3D model completely?

Or you could save as and delete all your sheets- that way only the views are in the model. This method would allow them to go elsewhere for design work without sharing who originally did the work, is that their purpose?



Using Revit2014, dragging the rest of the company with me from AutoCAD2008. When will the whining stop?
