Then, you need go to the Insert tab to bring the schedule back to project and it will list out all of the views that are eligible to be imported from the file. Now a simplified geometric model will be used in place of the detailed model when Revit Views are set to Coarse or Medium. Sometimes when experiencing a hard time opening a project, make it easier by utilizing a splash screen.

Auto-Origin to Origin The referenced file will place its kyes origin point at the origin point of the revit file. Anything outside of this range will be clipped from the plan. Before actually importing the file into the space, you will notice that there is a choice as to where to place this referenced file. Simply dimension two elements you want constrained and input the dimension you want to lock in. Pinned objects will show a thumbtack when selected.
The advantage to these views over the typical floor plan, elevation, and section views is that it enables the users to quickly see the model in different views without creating new sections, floor plans, or elevations that may clutter your project browser. Uncheck Coarse and Medium and click OK.
When you create a section view, you can right click the section line and click Go To View to directly open up the corresponding section view. You can change this to a set view. I checked them inthey didn't changed to pictogram. This trick is especially useful in locating imported CAD Drawings that did not import to a correct scale.

This link maintains a connection to the linked file, so though you may revti directly modify this linked model directly in the hosting revit model, any changes that you make directly in the linked model can be reloaded into the host revit model.
Change these numbers to whole integers by selecting the duct, then clicking on the dimension number. If they are estimations, they should still be set to a whole integer.
Revjt makes it easy to distinguish a locked dimension constraint from a regular dimension. Think about that project where you have hundreds of views, and maybe dozens of floor plans, shotcut editing fields in the schedule can save you a lot of time of going through each and every field.
Then hold down Control key and press Tab and it will cycle back to the other open window. This reduces the processing time of the Revit file and lets you start working on the project much more quickly.
Holding Shift while nudging will increase the amount of shortfut as well. Click the Filter button under the Modify Tab and uncheck all irrelevant objects.
