Converting Linked Revit Models to Groups

We had to Archiver our BP set of drawings and I was asked how to bind a Revit Link....
Here is the How Too...
  1. In the drawing area, select the linked Revit model.
  2. Click Modify - RVT Links tab - Link panel (Bind Link).
  3. In the Bind Link Options dialog, select the elements and datum to include in the group, and click OK.

If there is a group in the project with the same name as the linked Revit model, a message displays to indicate this. You can do one of the following:

·     Click Yes to replace the group.

·     Click No to save the group with a new name. Another message displays indicating that all instances of the linked model will be deleted from the project, but the linked model file will still be loaded in the project. You can remove the linked file from the project by clicking Remove Link in the message dialog, or you can remove it at a later time from the Manage Links dialog.

·     Click Cancel to cancel the conversion and your done!


  1. Every time I do this in Revit 2013 it crashes. Any idea what could be causing this?

  2. Could be a issue with one of the families in the model. Does it work on any other project files?
