    A view or views that appears to be locked into wireframe appearance is often the result of a DWG that has very large extents. Turn off Imported Categories in V/G to test.

    I assume by prototype you mean a client's default starting point for design and site adaptation like hotels or fast food for example? I'd favor separate models for disciplines unless you have all...

    Can you share the file(s)? Check for Geolocation being used in the DWG. Also does it use Survey Units? There is no such thing in Revit yet so that can account for slight discrepancies regardless.

    Unless you really want Revit to create a named UCS (Revit60-DefaultLocation) in the DWG. Its purpose is to permit exporting from Revit to DWG via Project Base Point and then...

    When you restarted Revit the disjoin option was reset to not checked.

    Not a bug, when you move a viewport and Disjoin is checked Revit thinks you're trying to create a new view. Move with the...

    Often a failure to join happens because the forms don't overlap enough...a sliver of join condition is too small to create it.

    If you aren't sharing the same categories then the host model will turn off their categories too. It's just more complicated when you are using the same category they are and you only want to see...

    What happens if there are no other CAD files in the current project? I'm mulling over the possibility that other CAD files are accumulating an extent issue. Imagine one CAD file has large extents but...

    Seems to me that forces you down the path of consumed models where you publish a version for them to use that can be stripped of the consultant's linked models.

    This can happen when a DWG file is linked By Shared Coordinates. When you sync it attempts to write a Named UCS to the DWG file and fails because BIM 360 can't do that (same as Publish Coordinates)....
