Binding Revit link makes elements from the link to change position in Revit.
Click Manage tab Manage Project panel (Manage Links). In the Manage Links dialog, click the relevant tab. Select the linked model. To unload the selected model, click Unload.
Open an existing model, and link another model to it.
- Open an existing model or start a new model. You will link another model into this model.
- Click Insert tab Link panel (Link Revit).
- In the Import/Link RVT dialog, select the model to link. …
- For Positioning, specify the desired option. …
- Click Open.
Use the Bind Link tool to select the elements and datum from a linked model to convert to a group. In the drawing area, select the linked model. Click Modify | RVT Links tab Link panel (Bind Link). In the Bind Link Options dialog, select the elements and datum to include in the group.
In the drawing area, select the linked Revit model. Click Modify | RVT Links tab Link panel (Bind Link). In the Bind Link Options dialog, select the elements and datum to include in the group, and click OK.
When you import a drawing into Revit, you are importing all the elements, such as blocks and external references (xrefs) from the drawing. They are all contained inside an element called an import symbol. … Note: You cannot explode linked files or an import symbol that would yield more than 10,000 elements.
To access tools for link management, click Manage tab Manage Project panel (Manage Links). To update linked models without closing the current project, you can reload the linked models. Unload linked models to temporarily remove them from the project.
Can you merge two Revit models?
Under Models, select the models to merge. When you select models, you can review them to track which models are included in the merged model. Specify a name and click Merge Models. The merged model stays current with model updates.
A linked CAD file will always be loaded fresh from the source document, and can be easily updated, unloaded, or removed in the future. An imported CAD file is loaded once and its data is baked into the Revit file.
How do you explode a CAD file in Revit?
You can explode imported DWG 3D solid (not Polymesh) geometry in the Family Editor environment.
- Select the import symbol.
- Click Modify | Imports in Families tab Import Instance panel Explode drop-down (Partial Explode) or (Full Explode). The 3D solids are now preserved as free form elements.
Causes: The CAD file has values much higher than the 20 mile limit for geometry from internal origin that was applied for Revit. The values themselves are not a problem but the CAD file has reference blocks that refer to 0,0,0 which is the cause of not displaying the CAD link.
