so, i have a large project where i have created separate models for the site (topo, site walls, pool), and the other two buildings that we are designing. i have successfully linked each of the buildings into the site model and positioned them accordingly. now i would like to do the reverse and bring (link) the site model back into each of the building models for reference. so far when i bring the site model into the building model its position (location) is way off. i am forgetting the steps to properly locate the site model into the building model. i believe it has something to do with the shared coordinates. can someone explain the steps to locate the site model back into the building model. remember i have located the building model into the site model already.

open site model, make sure northings & eastings ( orientation) and height above ohd ( sea level ) is correct,  link in building model, shift building model to correct location, use publish coordinates to change the location of the building model, save and close building model. Do other building model.


Now if you open either building model and you want to link in the site model or the other building then use insert rvt and in open window go to options and pick insert with shared coordinates.
