Have anyone come across this problem: whenever i export a sheet from revit into Autocad i get the extension line in the sheet title block on a NPLT layer along with the boarder of the view on the sheet.
the thing is, i want this line to plot unlike the view boarder, and i think it is stupid to correct this issue in AutoCad specially if the number of drawings is huge. Can anyone help me with this issue
For some strange reason the wiring on my electrical lighting plan has gone awry. Suddenly there are tick marks on all my wiring instead on an isolated few. I'm not sure how this happened. Maybe a setting change? Any help is truly appreciated.
How do you modify a routing preference to choose certain fittings? We have DWV routing prefernces but they always use sanitary tees. My preference is to use combination eighth bend wyes, I don't want to have to put them in manually.
Is there a way to choose what fitting are selected by default? Similar to the way ACAD MEP is setup with pipeprefdef?
I am wondering whether there is a way to have some branch circuits in a panel schedule with auto wire sizing and others within the same schedule manual input (for the purpose of increased size due to voltage drop).
Is this possible or does the entire wire size column receive the parameter specified at the header?
Ok so here I am trying to detail an electric room, I have panels transformers and the like right, wellall I want to do is draw a conduit from the connection point with an elbow looking up then place a verticle conduit on the elbow and draw my horizontals to the locations where they belong is there an easy way to do this? when I am placing the conduit the end point elevations are greayed out on the conduit tool menu. Do I have to draw a verticle conduit in an elevation view??? with this software I really shouldnt have to do that it should all be available to me in the plan view.
I have Lighting Control Panels down but what if we are using contactors which would need to be scheduled? I am thinking I will have to create a parameter within my branch lighting panel schedules which can indicate the use of contactor for control. I would then need to create a new schedule for each contactor which would look in the panels for applicable circuits. I am not sure how to achieve this.
Any suggestions or ways your firms are handling this?
I am getting this issue where there is this extra line showing when I apply insulation to a duct or pipe, its a solid line that runs inside it and runs around the perimetre of the duct or pipe.
Other instances are generally custom family's get the line too
When I print the the lines show properly and have no issues
I have created a multicategory schedule that includes the Length parameter, but he conduit is not showing a length. The field is blank. The parameter in a conduit schedule works just fine, but not in a multicategory schedule. What's up? I really need this to work correctly. Any chance this will ever get fixed?
I'm a security electronics consultant working with an architect on a project. The architect sent me their revit architecture model. I have Revit 2013. I purged their model and saved it as a Link.rvt. I created a new revit project and deleted all default elevations in the new project. I then linked in the architect's model and then copy/monitored their default elevation levels. Then I "imported" the floor plans from the link file. However, it only brought in the "root" floor plans for each level from the Link file. The architect had a lot of dependent floor plans. Their project browser looks like this
Level 1 Key Plan
- Admin floor plan
- housing floor plan
- housing 2 floor plan
Is there any way I can also import all of the depending floor plans? Or do I have to waste time recreating every single floor plan that the architect already spent their time creating??
I'm kind of new to Revit, know just enough to be dangerous, but this software sucks for us consultants. Absolutely terrible software. It's SLOW as molasses and I have a 5.0 GHZ i7 4k series computer with 32GB of ram. And nothing in Revit seems intuitive, everything is convoluted and terribly difficult to get the output that you want.
Hi, I am working in revit mep file which linked with revit structural and revit architectural. As per my project requirement, I need to create 96 layouts of the model. When I am creating a new layout, I need to create some new sections and details also. So that section lines is showing in my other layout views……how can I create new sections without affecting other layout views…??..Or is there any option for freeze views..? I don’t want to show new items in selected views…..please help me……
I have a linked design model from an electrical company done in AutoCAD. The access zones for the equipment are transparent 3D solids.
When linked into Revit MEP 2013 the 3D Solids are no longer transparent are making it tough to see placement of equipment.
Is there a way to change the visual of the Linked CAD model so that the 3D solid access zones are transparent as they are in the original model?
Looking for how revit selects the ASHRAE fitting type for fittings.
It appears that Revit defaults all the elbows to the CR3-1 Elbow, Smooth Radius, Without Vanes.
Any rectangular elbow gets the the above type, even if it's a mitered elbow.
Wondering if our fittings are from an old version and not working? Just think that the ASHRAE fitting should be stored in the family and not once it loads into the project.

I just placed a 6" valve on a 6" copper line, Later I needed to place a 3/4" ball valve on a 3/4" line. So I go to the Pipe Accessory button and invoke the process. I hover over the 3/4" line and it still remembers the 6" valve placed earlier. My question, Is Revit not smart enough to know that the line is 3/4" and not 6" ?
That's hard to believe... That it can give use all these calculations according to fixture units but not able to distinguish between pipe sizes.
