Hello all, hopefully somone can help! I have Revit 2015

So we have a shell model of a building which is just the structural portion of the wall.

We then have a revit drawing of Electical with the shell model linked in there so we can draw the electical families and such.

Then we have a HVAC/PLUMBING revit file with the shell model into that one as well so we know where we are drawing.

The problem is we are trying to link all 3 files together so we can see the electrical and HVAC and plumbing all together.

Now i have linked all 3 together but HVAC will show and electrical wont. I looked at the properties and the visual grpahics of both linked models to make sure they were the same and they are. but however they both just wont show up together.

Anyhelp is appriciated. I can also take screenshots if that would help. Let me know!

Several things. 

You have the electrical and the mechanical linked into the shell model - correct.

The electrical and mechanical are model elements - not CAD type lines and symbols - correct?

There are several things that can be happening here.

  • Check VG in your view.   Are the correct categories on?   Turn on everything to see.
  • Were these files linked in in a workset.   We recommend that.  Is the workset on?
  • In a view's VG settings, you will see a seperate tab for links.   Each link's VG can be controlled seperately from the host model.  Are these set to use the host VG settings?  If not, then how are they set?
  • Are the linked elements really in the view range?   The linked models may be way off in space.
  • Solid elements in your model could be hiding the other model elements.
  • If these files are really 3D then you will see elements.   If they are symbols and linework, nothing will show.
