I have a condo project. The condos are exactly the same but they are at different elevations. I was going to make the condo a group so if I change 1, it changes them all. The problem is I don't know how to place a copy of the group on a different elevation.

Is it possible?

The problem with groups inserted into the same model is floor levels.  With your stepped condo's, each will have different levels.

Since these condo's are all alike, there should only be one set of plans ... a master floor plan model where the building is defined and grouped.  This may also be your master site model.  Next create a seperate model for each condo with the condo group inserted in it and save each with it's own name. Now you can reopen the master model and link in each condo project at their proper elevation and rotation in relation to the master.  Each plan's levels will show with the model name associated with the level if you cut a section through all.

Try these steps:

1.      Open a brand new project.

2.      Rename Views “Level 1” to “100”, “Level 2” to “102”, which are the floor elevations.

3.      Go to Elevation South for example, change the elevations accordingly, and adding more levels as needed. Now you have 100, 102, 104, 106, so on so forth. Now each level has 2'-0" different.

4.      Switch back to plan view 100, insert your group “Standard Unit” onto this level 100.

5.      Copy that “Standard Unit” onto clipboard.

6.      Go to plan view 102, paste “Standard Unit” onto it.

7.      Do this for 104, 106…..

8.      Go to elevation view to see if that’s what you want.

9.      All changes for the group “Standard Unit” will be shown accordingly.
