    You can link DWG, DXF, FBX, or RVT files. A DWG is the native file format for AutoCAD and  AutoCAD Architecture; FBX is used as an interchange format by a number of Autodesk applications; and RVT is the native file format for Autodesk Revit Architecture.

  1. Choose Application Menu References Manage Links.
  2. On the Attach panel, click Files to select a file from the appropriate directory on either your local or network system, then click Open.

    If the file is an RVT file that has multiple cameras, the File Link Manager prompts you to choose a camera view.

  3. Choose a Preset from the drop-down list, if you have one defined.
    Tip: If this is your first File Linking, and you have not defined any presets, you might want to create one on the Presets panel of the dialog.
  4. If the file is a DWG or DXF file, turn on Rescale and change the Incoming File Units, if necessary.
  5. Click Attach This File.
