So I am having a huge issue with linking the contour line and site in generally that my office got from Civil. I am trying to link the file into my Revit file so I can just have the site there for diagramming purposes. Whenever I link the AutoCAD file into my Revit file it will either not show something from a layer that should be there, put contour lines miles away int he model, or now it's been importing the contour lines partially hidden or gone. What is the best way of importing an AutoCAD file? I am having the most difficult time figuring it out and it's setting back this project. What is happening? How can I fix this?

Hi, Eric, I had a similar Issue before, I fix it with purge and audit the autocad file, and then importing to revit.

You may have multiple problems. You don't say what views you are having trouble in but I bet it is a 3D view.

 

Lets assume that your CAD file is done correctly and that your contour lines are 3D.   So problem #1 is that if you import this into all views, the CAD is now 3D.   Contour lines in a 3D view will be off in space as you described.  << So don't have them on in a 3D view or insert the CAD as this view only wich makes it a 2D view.

I am actually having problems in plan. I don't look in 3D for this just yet because the file is all messy when it comes in. I am having problems bringing in an autocad survey and it keeps making contours disappear or not show up at all

We can't help you a lot with the information you gave. What you describe is not at all typical.

  • Layers in imports can be turned off.   Did you do that?
  • Imported CAD can be hidden under model elements.  Check by turning off all model elements in VG - simple checkbox at the top.
  • Video cards can cause issues similar to this.
  • If the import is 3D, maybe the missing contour lines are above your cut.( I'm not sure if this could happen but worth the check.)  Look at it in 3D view.
