Rotating Workgroup References

Recommended Posts

I have 2 model files:

1. 3d Site Model pointing True North

2. Building Model Rotated conveniently for drawing.

I have created workgroup reference within file 1 (site) to design layers in file 2 (bldg), and have rotated these referenced layers (fp1, fp2 etc) according to North.

I now need to add design layers to file 2 (bldg). Is there no way to maintain the same rotation of the other referenced layers without manually re-rotating the new references?

If link layers were allowed to be imported, this problem would not exist. Am I missing something obvious?

VW 12.5 user, PC and Mac Platforms.

yes. step 1, do not rotate your referenced layers.

step 2, create a layer link or a Design Layer Viewport from the referenced layers to a "working layer"

that way, you can add new referenced layers and turn then on in the DLVP

I'm working with VW 12.5, which doesn't have the capability of creating a DLVP. The problem is I need to reorient those referenced layers, ie. rotate them with respect to the site model into which I'm importing them.

Is this not possible except with VW2008?
