AutoCAD 2013 :: How To Create Multiple Views Of Same Part Separated From Other Base Views
Apr 3, 2013
I am trying to create a second base view (using Layout/Create View/Base from model space). The problem is, I need it to be rotated from the original base view. However, when I rotate the part in model space, ALL of my views change.
So I guess my question is, how do I create multiple views of the same part that are seperate from the other base views?
I have several different views xreffed into a single view, should'nt they all share the base construct? i.e. If I want to overlay the lighting plan, HVAC plan and my reflected ceiling plan- they should share the first floor construct. Instead each one brings in the same base construct and then when you overlay them, the walls interfere and you get wall errors.
I am attempting to create section views from a corridor. I have about 80 sections total that I would really like to stack 3 high...then just across the page. Any step by step that make this process easy to understand?
Right now I get 10 high then across the page (using 'draft' option). I've tried to make a dwt at a 10 scale, (setting the viewport at 10 scale and viewport as a 'section' in the properties), but when I use that, the sections start overlapping (this is using the 'production' option).
We would like to make the transparency of glass-materials visible in views and section-views by using the "realistic style". During a 3d-view our glass-material looks like transparent. Isn't it possible for REVIT to display the transparency of materials in views ?
The workaround to hide "glass" by using "overriding visibility" is not possible for us because some of our families and project families are using glass-materials inside (Showcases f.e.).

Since the end of Aug. 2012 I've been making families for a manufacturer. I left Friday evening with good families. This morning I am finding all the families I checked with a problem.
When I move the cursor across the various views it doubles the views. Rolling the mouse wheel one click either way to zoom in or out cleans the view but on the next time the cursor goes across the view it doubles it again. Now there are 4 views overlapping each other. The next time it is possibly 8, and so on. It is difficult to count them because they are overlapping but it looks like they are doubling each time.
The software is Revit Architecture 2011 and the computer is a Dell Precision T3500.Are the families corrupted or is it the computer? Is there a toggle I hit that I shouldn't have?
I'm trying to print / plot a drawing which has a mixture of 2D plans and 2 3D views. I have the drawing set-up with viewports in paperspace. The objects in one of the 3D views prints perfectly, yet some of the linework from the second 3D view won't print.
I have no issues when using autocad for simple 2d drafting, layers and commands seem straightforward enough, but I am having real difficulty with the 3d interface when set up with 4 viewports, similar to Rhino (top, front, right and perspective)
Question #1: can I link the viewports so that moving around in 1 moves the other simultaneously to the same zoom and location?
Question #2: can I set up the MButtonPAN (or similar for orbit) command to orbit ONLY when in a perspective viewport? (in rhino, the right mouse button always orbits in a perspective viewport, and pressing shift with right mouse button can pan, ideally this is what I need or some variant of it). It seems very cumbersome to have to use the orbit button every time I want to adjust my perspective view!
Basically I want to make my workflow as similar to Rhino as possible, as it has become deeply engrained, and so far the crossover is not going well.
I have created an assembly with multiple views to show the multiple configurations of our products. However, half way down the line I realized I had forgotten to place a component. When I placed the component, I found that it had been placed in all the views automatically. Is there a way to select the views to place the components in or to prevent the component from being placed in any of the custom views except the default view?
I can't control the section participation of individual parts or subasy in a IDW view. I want to have some parts & subs sectioned in the view & others not sectioned. They seem to follow whatever the IAM is set for. Note that I do not want to control the section participation in each Model from Documentation/Model/Particiapation becasue it will screw up other drawings referencing the models. Besides, I tried it & it stil wouldn't work.
The complicated part is that the view can be a cropped or detail view of a section view that is the child of the parent view-(I had to do it this way to get the view I needed).
is it even possible to individually control the sectioning in parts of nested views?
The RMB controls are available to do so but nothing happens, even if I close & open the file again.
Sometimes the RMB menu/Section Participation shows little filled in squares next to Sectioned & None. If I click on either, it becomes a check mark.
When creating multiple sections using the draft option what settings control how the sections are placed? For example, 5 across, 4 down.
edit - I have several alignments. One that has 8 section views is created with 4 across and 3 down, another with 18 sections is created with 5 across and 4 down and a third with 34 is created with 6 across and down. I'd like to be able to control this if possible.
I am working on a corridor project where I have to make section views of the road. I created my sample lines by range of stations, and made all of my section views from there. Now I need to add volume tables for each section view.
I have 28 section views, and more to come when I do another set of sample lines for another road, and I don't feel like going through each section view individually to make volume tables for them.
Is there a way I can create total volume tables for all of my section views at the same time? It would save a lot of time!
I have created multiple sections and produced drawings, but now need to amend the design and provide 1 additional section on the drawings. I added an additional sample line to the sample line group and then updated the secion view layout but the additional section did not show in the multiple section view. Is there a way to add the additional section to the existing multiple section view? or do I need to go through the process of deleting the current sections and creating a new multiple section view that includes the new sample line?
