Is there a limit to linking layers to layers?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've got two buildings, A and B, each one with its own floor, walls, and roof layers. These are linked to two model layers, "linked model A" and "linked model B". I can see these models with Show Others. No problem here.

Then I tried linking (create layer link) the two models to a final model layer. The handles (locked or unlocked) for the two linked models show up, but no views... nothing... invisible. The scales are the same. This layer is at the top of the layer stack. It its visibility is Normal. It is Active.

I'm stumped. Is there something simple that I'm forgetting? Thanks.

Is the drawing 2D? There is a "display 2D objects" (or something like that) checkbox in the create layer link dialog, if this isn?t marked only 3D objects will appear.
