Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Linking other models, part of Revit 2017: Essential Training for MEP (Metric).
- [Voiceover] The first thing that we do…at the start of any MEP project, is link another trade in.…Generally, there's almost no exception to this.…So, that's what I want to do.…I'm gonna jump into my electrical project.…And I'm gonna go to my Insert tab.…In my Insert tab, I'm gonna click on Link Revit.…I'm gonna go to where I'm keeping my backgrounds,…and I'm gonna select Architectural.…Now, the positioning is important that I…select Auto - Origin to Origin.…

My reference type wants to be Overlay.…In my phase mapping, I'm gonna click on Edit.…And right now we haven't dealt with phases yet,…so this is perfect.…
