 :lol: Yowser...

that is truly amazing... The one thing with nesting is that it is important for the people working on a drawing like that to understand how the nesting is working and where everything is coming from. If you have many people in a design team, that could turn into a disaster in a heartbeat. All it takes is for someone to change from attach to overlay in one key file and all the drawings will be FUBAR....

Impressive, but boy that can turn into a real big mess...

While I've never had any trouble nesting XREFs (since R14 anyway), that seems trully excessive.

Wow, what a wicked web they weaved!  There's noting wrong with nesting Xref's so long as there is a method to the madness.   ;-)

....or in this case, a madness to their method.   We nest xrefs too, but around 4-5 deep at the most.  All of this is in-house and we don't send the 3D model to the customer unless absolutely necessary.  Gotta admit though, that's impressive.........
