Hi All,

 I'm trying to creating an isometric plumbing plan, using Autocad Architecuture 2013. After creating the plan, I  saved it

in the SW Isometric view. I even typed the command " Proxygraphics" to turn it  on(1). Then I imported that DWG file, using

Revit Architecture 2013, into a drafting view. But Revit just displayed a flat 2d floor plan. Is there a way to make Revit to display Autocad isometric views.

Thanks

Andy

You imported a 3D view into a 2D view - of course it will be 2D.

If you import CAD into "this view only" it will be 2D. 

 

If you may change this, then I would link instead of import.  If you link it into a workset that is normally off and place the view off in space, you might be able to get what you want. 

 

I'm pretty shure you can do all of this directly in Revit so why CAD?

Thanks. I tried to link as you suggested , but it was still flat lines. So I had to print it from Autocad then used copy&paste the plan in Blue Beam Revu( or any PDF). In order to create 3d lines, we need to pick the work plane, or UCS in Autocad. But when I activated the drafting view in Revit, there is no work plane to be picked, unless Autodesk had added the function in its 2015 version, which I don't have.
