As anyone figured out how to set drafting views as an external source that can be placed in multiple projects, such as an x-ref or cadd block detail works in autocadd?  I am currently setting up our details in drafting views but have the problem that they must be placed in a .rvt file.  This means I must know what project it is in, in order to transfer from file to file.  I would like it if they were saved like families are.  I am using revit 2008.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

I think what coreed mean is, you right click the drafting view in project browser, at the bottom there's save to a new file, save it as a new file, and then, in your other project, you go to File menu > Insert from file > Views (I learnt this from Autodesk Official Training Course Essential)

you can try with other views too, but as far as I know, Revit will give you this notification :

Only schedules, reports, drafting views and drafting sheets which do not contain model views maybe transferred between existing projects

cheers vicozzio

So I assume that you can have a file that has a heap of drafting views that you import into your active project file.  Does this import all the drafting viewsor can you select specific 1's????

Cheers to you too KennyGee

If you want to save a spesific drafting views, you can select multiple drafting views that you want to save, then right click, save it.. (that spesific drafting views will saved in one file) then in another project file, you go file menu > insert from file > views.. after you select the saved file... then you'll be ask... which view do you want to insert...

Thanks

I understand now.  We have a heap of cad details that I want to import into Revit but not keep in my template file, so this method will be perfect. The other guys in the office can load whichever detail in relevent to their project.
