We have a project  with a back building that has sort of been an after thought. With a few issues that I wanted to resolve as quickly and cleanly as possible.

I'd like do the following:

1. Put everything on a new appropriate floor level.

The floors, walls windows (all content basically) are offset from the level of another building with floor levels 4 or 5 feet higher. Deleting the mismatched levels takes walls and other stuff with it - poof!

2. Eventually reference this back building back into the main model with multiple buildings (origin the same) but find a way not to have the levels it brings into the main model show up in every view.

Is there a way to clean up the level problems quickly?

More back story - I saved a copy of the main model to delete things out of until I'm just left with the back building (seems to work) I also tried grouping the back building and exporting the group as a revit project - but that brings with it a whole host of VG setting problems... any thoughts or suggestions are welcome - thank you

Linked model levels can be turned off through VG (and thus view templates).


If elements are hosted to one level but offset to appear as being hosted to a higher level, there is little you can do except at the element level.  For instance you can:

  • Select all walls hosted on the low level bt set to start at the offset of the higher level, change their host level to the higher level and change their offset to 0 (or as appropriate).  Then you may also have to change their tops.
  • For doors, windows and other elements, you will do basically the same.
