  2. Desktop Connector and Linked Revit Model Updates

    Has anybody had success in the Desktop Connector, especially in using it to update Revit models that are Links? As an MEP discipline, I'm wanting this tool to act as a Windows Explorer type of...

    Yes, I agree with all this. The Central Plant was different X,Y,Z and the team wanted an origin that was "simple". There are several different modeling teams and it was easier for them to have a grid...

    It has worked in my favor rather than not in my favor by changing this setting as an MEP guy. Of course, as with anything, there are no ultimate solutions but only tradeoffs and the tradeoff is...

    Not sure if this adds anything to the thread, but as an MEP guy, I did myself a favor a long time ago and un-checked the Apply Halftone option in my template and it has done wonders for my workflow.

    Are you saying you can't get AC to work from a Link that's on BIM360? If so I want to double check this. I feel like it always works for us.
