I've searched around extensively but I have yet to see anyone post a resolution to this problem. Everytime I move a wall in my architectural model, it seems to wreak havoc on the electrical model. I am a seasoned Revit user -- I'm not deleting and redrawing, I'm not moving disjoined, I'm just moving a wall because it needs to move, but for whatever reason the electrical face-based families are not moving with the wall. Sometimes they shoot off into space, which I think may be the result of them not moving appropriately when hosted by walls that are in groups. But even when hosted by walls that are not grouped, they are not moving with the walls as they should. The most frustrating thing is that I can't replicate the situation, so I'm at an absolute loss as to what causes it -- I've tried hosting electrical components to a linked test model and then doing all sorts of things to change the walls in the test model, and the components always stick with the walls.

Has anyone run into this before and have any suggestions? I'm in 2015, and the electrical model has a linked "master" model that links my architectural model, so they are hosting to a nested model.

Need more information.

In the electrical model, are the walls copy monitored so that they can host elements?   Or are the elements face based?

Sure. The elements are face-based and hosted directly to the linked model. Thanks for your help.
