Linking Revit MEP models into Revit Architecture

Dave Ivey asks:-

“We’re working with MEP models for the first time, and seem to be having problems viewing their content.  The image below shows locations for pipes which are system families (in MEP), and which do not show up any view (2D or 3D) when the model is linked in to RAC 2010.  All the obvious stuff has been checked (Worksets, View Range, Object Styles, Visibility Graphics, etc…).  We even tried linking to a specific view in the MEP model, and all we see anywhere is Annotation.  Hopefully I’m just missing something obvious?”

Lee Miller says:-

“Create a new 3D view, then go to instance properties for the view and set the discipline to Coordination”.

“Next go to Visibility/Graphics for the view; then under Revit Links, set the Display setting to “By Linked View”.
