We are building a condo with 5 instances of a typical floor plan. After dealing with much frustration always having to copy and past the floors up we have tried to create a seperate revit linked file for the typical floor. The idea in theory works great, enabling easy updating of the entire exterior and interior of the typical plan. The problem arises though, when trying to underlay the typical plan in other views. Is it possible to get the linked file to display in the underlay? Does anyone have any suggestions or any other methods of increased productivity when dealing with a typical floor. Thanks guys Gavin

Some folks will make the first floor then group it, copy to clipboard then paste aligned to each other floor. Changes to one will change them all. I really like using massing. I sketch a mass object that represent slab edge. Then make the mass taller than my highest floor. Finish mass, then select it, use Floor Area Faces on the options bar to assign a floor area face to each level. Then use Floor by Face to assign a floor to each face. If the slab edge needs to change I change the mass and then remake the floors via the Remake option. Do the massing tutorials to get a better sense of it perhaps. Then to manage the penetrations take a look at Modelling > Opening > Create Shaft Opening. These buggers can cut any floors, ceilings and roofs that it comes into contact with managing your vertical penetrations with one object for the full height of the building if necessary.

This is a building made of massing and floors by face. The massing can make short work of undulating or leaning buildings slab edges.

Appreciate the help steve. I like that mass too, but thats not exactly what I mean. I am past the massing stage of development. All interir walls are already deaigned, so I need to think beyond just the floor slabs. I have used groups on another project and have descided they are way to much of a pain. That being said, does anyone know if you can underlay a linked file? Thanks Gavin
