    Default Plumbing fixtures

    I'm really new to all this so [bear] with me. How do I pull in the plumbing fixtures, located on the architectural drawing, so I can connect the S,V, H & CW. This is my first project and thankfully it's small. I went in and just pulled fixtures in and laid them on top of the Architectural plans but i know there must be an easier way. I wasn't quite sure what this would even be called since I tried a search but came up with nothing.

    Thanks in advance,
    glenn

    There are several ways of doing this Glenn...

    • Use the TAB key to select the plumbing fixtures within the linked architects file. 'Ctrl-C' (copy to clipboard) and then 'Paste Aligned-Same Place' from the edit menu.
      • You will however then need to replace these with MEP equivalents that have connectors.
    • Place MEP Plumbing fixtures just as you have been doing and then turn them off in the linked file.
    • Alternatively, only have face based plumbing connector families which mean you don't have to place any toilets / WHB's, only the plumbing connections.
    Hope this helps

    That's kind of what I did but I was hoping that I wouldn't have to actually go back in and lay fixtures on top of what the architect had already done. Wishful thinking.

    Thanks Simon,
