Revit :: How To Avoid Overlap Between Level Sign And Drawing
Mar 9, 2013
How to avoid the overlap between the level sign and the drawing?
I’m wondering concerning the default behavior of the Revit regarding the level signs. In the screenshot below, a wall of 9 meters is drafted in the indicated location while its 4 elevations are displayed next to it.
the north elevation has an overlap with the level signs and also the south elevation is at the end of the level signs. how to manage this problem and also based on what these levels are set this way (by design).How the overlap might be avoided?
The underlay does not show up for Level 1 when I am on Level 2, but it does show up for Level 2 when I am on Level 1. the underlay option is on for Level 1, so I'm not sure why it's not showing up. I am using Revit 2014.
I am trying to find the best way to make the wall/roof shown below. I have experimented with the normal route of using walls and roofs with no luck, then I tried a conceptual mass, then I tried model in place component which is how I made the model below and that worked to get the exterior form I need, but I cant void the interior part of the crossing forms so I can finish the floor plan on the interior. I need to somehow erase the portion of the two buildings where they overlap so I dont have the interior wall of the smaller building. I use revit architecture 2010.
I have a problem with my revit 2013, I have to change one of my walls structure, but as soon as i hit ok the message "Pads can't overlap (but can share edges)" pops up, I cant understand where the problem comes from because I am not changing pads boundary!
Is it possible to copy a phase from one level to the other. For example, on Level 1 I have walls that are Existing, Demo, and New Construction.
If I select the objects and copy to clipboard and paste the objects to another level they will all switch to New Construction. Is there any way we can have the walls remain the same phase when copied to another level?
Is there a way to set the visibility of elements in a 3D view according to the Level they are associated with?
The VG tab which opens the filter dialog provides a check box for the "Levels" category, and the relevant parameters are made available.
But I can not seem to create a filter rule which evaluates any of those parameters (name, elevation, etc...) to then isolate the visibility of those elements in the 3D view that either meet, or do not meet the criteria. Nothing seems to work.
To achieve a "similar" effect in a 3D view, I can use a Section Box, but that is a very clunky and imprecise way.I can also create a Shared Parameter for "Level" and perhaps filter successfully that way, but that seems redundant with the Levels intelligence already established.
It is almost seeming like you should not try to creat these views in templates to get a jump start on projects. but for the life of me I am not understanding how you can get level lines to appear elevations that have already been create. or in new ones?is there away to successfully get these back?
I noticed that Revit likes to show the entire stair going down. This works for me in a lot of cases but I have a project that the second floor is showing the stair all the way down to the first floor, and there is another stair going from the second floor to the third that I really need to see.
Plan regions don't seem to allow me to add a break line below the second floor and see the stair from the second to the third floor. The floors are on and the view is set to hidden.
The attached png shows the up stairs in blue that I would like to see and the Down stairs I would like to cut at the landing.
I accidentally deleted the side (left side default) tool bars and how do i get them back?? I cant find the buttons in the main toolbar (top).I got the properties toolbar back but i am still wondering how to get the level toolbar back(that shows you all the different views)
I'm creating a Construction Template in Revit 2014. When I create new levels these appear in Floor Plans and automatically generate a new Structural Floor Plan view with the new levels but the previous levels don't appear (those that come in Revit by default).
I dont want to delete the level 0 which comes by default.
I've got a model and i created a new level as normal, propogated extents etc but when i created as section North to South (Vertical) in the model the level does not show. When i create a section from East to west (horizontal) then the level appears fine. I've tried creating many sections and this is always the case. If i select a level in the section and click on select all instances in entire project the number includes the additional level but i can't see it. It is not hidden in the view, not on a different workset or anything unusual...
I have an issue where filtering my framing member schedules per Level by, for example, Level equals LEVEL 3 causes the entire schedule to be filtered to empty. We clearly have members constrained to and occuring on LEVEL 3.
The same happens when filtering for, say, at or above LEVEL 3, but interestingly not at or below LEVEL 3, in which case nothing happens -- that is, it still displays members clearly occuring only on and constrained to Reference LEVEL 5.
I'm just a novice when it comes to this program, a student in High school so I'm not very familiar with it.
Why is it that when I change one floor's surface (tile,carpet, ect.) and then make a seperate floor on the same floor but with a different surface, it changes BOTH floors like they are instances of each other?
How can I add a surface to individual floors on the same level? Ex. Carpet in living room, Tile in Bathroom.
I'm trying to create workset by view level , for example I need to assign each floor in the building to separated users and by that way I let more people shares in creating one revit model. I create worksets by views but I notice that I still can open any view level and I can add elements . Is there any way to lock the not editable views from opening and adding a new elements and make it secure ?
Is it possible to show the exterior walls at a different detail level than the interior walls in the same view? Keep in mind they are all apart of the basic wall system family so there is no editing the family visibility at this point.
Revit 2013: Was playing around with sketching symbolic lines in a Generic Model family. I added a line and changed its LOD to be visible in fine only. Nevertheless, it was still visible in the family editor even when the view was set to coarse.
1) How can we verify visual behavior of a family while in the family editor if the objects visibility is not governed by LOD settings? (BTW: The family performs correctly when loaded in the project, just not in the family editor).
2) Is the fact that LOD is ignored in the family editor by design or a bug?
3) Is there any visual cue that tells us that a particular line will be not visible at a LOD?
4) Should we be duplicating Ref. Level views in the family to keep things straight?
