Loading Links

When a link definition has been created in another project and saved to disk as a .link file, it can be then loaded back into a new project following the steps below.

Import an Ideate BIMLink link definition from another Revit project

To load a link definition into the current Revit project, template, or family file:

  1. Select the New… button from the main dialog of Ideate BIMLink.
  2. Select the Browse method at the left of the New Link dialog.
  3. Pick the Load… button, as shown above, to specify a folder location where the previously defined linked definition has been save. 
  4. Select one or more links from this folder to import them into the current Revit project, template, or family file.

TIP: If you find yourself frequently loading links from the same folder, you may want to add this folder to your library.

You may receive warnings if the Link you are loading conflicts with an existing link.  For more information, see Ideate BIMLink messages.
