Revit 2022 – About the Visibility of Linked Models

SHARE

In my experience, once one understands that one can override the elements in linked models by category, there is not much interest in the other methods that present themselves in the Visibility Graphics Overrides for Links. It might pay to look in detail at these methods.

Shown below is a mechanical model with an architectural model linked in.

Firstly, there are simple overrides to show the model elements in a specific way.

Half Tone – Drawn in Greyscale

Underlay – Halftone with display order set to show behind the active model.

These settings can be controlled to some extent using the management settings

There is a good bit of customization that can be applied so that working with the model is easy.

When you open the Display Settings, there are a lot more options to choose from.

On the Basics tab, one can choose the host view, the linked view, or take control of the link more carefully by choosing Custom. The following items are up for control: Linked View, View Filters, View Range, Phase, Phase Filter, Detail Level, Discipline, Colour Fill, object Styles, and Nested Links.

Over and above this, you may then take even more control of the individual tabs. The linked Revit model’s categories and subcategories can be individually overridden.

This is also true of the annotation categories.
