Revit Russian Roulette!!

June 17, 2011

Dimensions that bridge between a linked AutoCAD file and your Revit model can be like playing Russian Roulette. You can get away with small changes but at some point Revit will go BANG! and delete all your dimensional references that bridge between the ACAD file and the Revit Project File when you reload that revised ACAD file.

It’s best to construct a model or graphic reference in the Revit Project to dimension to. Then changes in the reloaded ACAD file will be visually apparent without deleting control dimensions in the project and should be easy to ID and then revise.

A linked Revit project file may also present a problem with bridging dimensions.
