Hi, I am not sure how to ask this, but our linked model is slightly cut off. When I pick the model a blue border shows up but it is not selectable for adjustment.
I would like to "stretch" it out a little. Is this do-able?
see the attachment
Can anyone please let me know if there is a way to move objects in vertical direction (z-axis) in 3d views, without having to turn the view everytime to be of frontal direction. I would like to move entire objects - for example mass objects - up or down directly in a 3d view of random orientation, now only top- or bottom face can be moved vertically, the whole object moves only on xy -plane. Can vertical movement of an object be done intuitively graphically and/or can it be be numerically, feeding coordinates?
Have tried all sources, but cannot find solution, and refuse to believe that Revit would be the only 3d/bim software on planet where direct vertical manipulation of objects is not possible.
Thanks a lot in advance!
I modeled an apartment building with 4 floors, etc, and I'd like to make an exact copy of this building twice, because this area has three identical apartment buildings side by side. How can I do this properly? thank you!

I'm wondering if it's possible to have, for example, three versions of the Building Design Suite Premium and then one version of the Revit LT, and if they can all still work together on the same project? For example, if one architect uses the Revit LT to model a building, and then two mechanical engineers use the Revit MEP in the Suite with one structural engineer with the other Suite, can all four work together on the same model in the sense that the architect using LT can give his model to the engineers and vice versa?
is there a way to specify a new construction material with a new material id number in the xml file so that when I construct a wall for example, I can pull that material into the wall layer? For example, I'd like to create a new insulation material that's currently not in the normal material library, but I don't know how to specify the material id number in the xml file.....any suggestions? thank yoU!
I would like to create the rebar using API 2014. I found some sdk sample which is not meet my requirement. I need to create the rebar on beam(for example I may selected the beam) and inout is (Rebar bar 6R) Shape(Stirrup - T1). For your reference i have attached job file.

I have Revit 2014 installed on my work PC and am working on a 70mB file of no exceptional complexity on Revit Server. I am running with SP1 & SP2 installed on
I keep getting a recurring problem that is causing me to lose heaps of work.
During work, Revit just freezes dead!. I cannot do anything. I cant escape, I cant unfreeze it. Its as if its waiting for me to respond to a message but there is no **** message!
When I control Alt Del and try to force shut Revit - Windows tells me Revit is waitng for me to respond. Revit itself throws up a useless message saying I have an uncompleted operation.
Please help me as I've lost over 4 hrs work and its really giving me the shi*s.
I have an opportunity to my take the courses required for Revit Architecture Essentials Certificate of Completion (Intro, Intermediate, Advanced).
My original education is in Technical Theatre (anything other then acting), and the only career I've had in the field of Architecture is administrator for 2 different Architects, for about 5 years. I have always had a personal interest in architecture and drafting.
I would like to use the Revit Architecture Certificate of Completion as a base for a career. It could start as a Draftsman, and forward on from there.
Does anyone have any input, suggestion or ideas on my plans. Do you think I can find work based on this education? I am 49 years old, so don't want to go for Architectural Technician.
Thanks for any help in advance.
I would like to be able to show my piping as a complex (text) line type --http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Revit/enu/Community/Examples/Complex_(Text)_Line_Type

I am currently on a project that uses refrigerant lines and would like the 3d representations as well as showing "---RL---" for my liquid, as an example. Is there a way to do this??
I am currently using 2013 but I have 2014. Not everyone has the 14 versions.
When circuiting the light fixtures, some wires come in with the end offset (to adjust where the wire touches the light fixture) and some don't. Does anyone knows what controlling it? I have a light fixture that does not have the end offset. The end of the wire stuck at one position (which is where the connector point is).
I have a model where I want to only show a single family type ('dimensions' in my case) in the project's properties-palette. Throughout the design of the model, I have kept my parameters under specific groups ('general','data') so that I may (hopefully) be able turn them off to the user as the information is for my benefit only.
However, and I attach my example; the project properties-palette shows dimensions that are not dimensions. Also, some of the parameters are unlocked which I have not 'authorised'.
Have I missed something, please?
Can you circuit to a panelboard if it is in a linked model?
I am trying to install Revit Architecture 2014 x64 updates 1 and 2, but keep getting an error message that the update can't be installed "because the expected Autodesk product could not be located on your server". I have confirmed the build number, etc. Any ideas? Thanks.
Can anyone please tell me how to have different colors for different wall faces? Like all have a plaster finish on the external side, but the colors are different, but when I try to change the color of the external finish, it changes it for all the walls.
I have trouble with with my student version of Revit 2014. I am using a Mac Book Pro, Retina Display, and therefore bootcamp and Windows 7. I managed to install Revit, but as soon as I open a project, I notice some flickering white spots in my bottom task bar. Now I can very slowly try to draw a wall for example, but eventually or when I try so save the project, Revit will stop working. All symbols fade to be grey and the window to save the project won't open. Now when I try to do anything else it won't work. Not even closing Revit. So I have to force it to shut down by using the task manager.
- reinstall the program several times (Revit 2014 and 2013)
- reinstall Windows itself (Windows 7 and Windows 8.1)
- redo the bootcamp partition on my mac
- installed VM - Ware Fusion
- download and install all Windows Updates
- download and install all Revit Updates
- enable and disable the hardware acceleration (Revit, Option)
Do you have any experience with this problem or is there anything I can do?
I have been trying for 3 days now to download revit architeture and it downloads and starts to install properly but when the autodesk in page comes up that says install and install tools and such I click install it starts and seconds later it ends and says it failed. What do I need to do!!
I am trying to build in some design checks into my model to stop errant dimensions doing the unexpected and I have written an expression that checks a bearing - please see attached. I want to change bearing4 (top right dimesion to bearing4checked but I receive an error. If I delete the dimension and try to create a new dimension and call it bearing4checked or even to replace the bearing4 after it was deleted, I receive the same error - overrestrained.
The same applies to bearing1. Dimensions bearing2 and bearing3 changed ok but these dimensions lie outside the main parametric part of the model.
Any clues please?
