Can you "data shortcut" MEP sections, in the same way as using data shortcuts in C3D?

So that 2D sections can be used as XREF drawings without having to xref in the 3D model as well?

I have never found a way to do this. I've even asked the question before in other forums and never got a response.

I had a thought but don't have MEP here to test it - do you think this would cause any problems?

 

Create your 3D components, each component in a separate 3DXREF, and then overlay these into a 2DXREF where you'll cut your plan view. Then xref this into any drawings as required.

 

You could do the same for sections but these would be held in a separate 2DSectionsXREF.

 

I guess you'd essentially be following a similar file management system to Solidworks or Inventor.
