Looking for an easy way to rotate this drawing on the sheet layout.  The walls were inserted into revit, at a rotated angle, and now I am looking for an easy way to drag the drawing on the sheet and

Probably the easiest way is to create a site file and link the 2 together. Then you can rotate the project in the site file, push the coordinates to the drawings file, change to abs coordinates (not relative) and it should update your entire model. I havent actually used this process for this purpose but it should work. In the future I would draw orthagonally and then use a linked site file to rotate the building on the site rather than the other way around.

Whoa NKramer ....

 

The answer is .... activate the viw, if the crop regions are not visible, turn them on using VP.  Click on the crop boundry and click on the rotate button and "rotate the view"  .... this will allow you to rotate this view to any angle.  

 

This same method is very helpful where you have a plan call-out of an area that is easier to detail if the view is rotated.

I guess I am just thinking about projects that are constantly in flux. Then you can rotate to your hearts content without having to worry about affecting other people. But you are right that would be the correct way to do it, assuming you know the exact rotation, etc.

 

Sorry for the confusion.

I agree that the drawing should have been drawn orthagonally from the beginning... however I was not in control of that.  As for the comment that required activating the view... when I did that I received an error that would not let me proceed... I realized that this was rotating my entire building in model space.  All I would like to do is rotate the layout in the title block (paper space)

 

Any thoughts?

You should just be able to rotate the crop boundry without touching the actual model. Turn on the crop boundry (bottom left button with the 2 angles and the lightbulb overlaping). Select the crop boundry, select the rotate command and rotate away.

 

The only problem with this is based on Revit's idea that everything should be rotated from its geographical center, so you need to know what angle you cant just match it up to one like you would in cad. That is one of the advantages of the linked site file, you can align the building face to a known element (ie curb face).

 

If you keep getting an error try closing everyone out of the file, audit the central file and then rotate the view without other people in it. You may be steping on someone elses toes who already has a protion of or something linked to that workset checked out.

No, rotating the view is not rotating the model.  Use your help menu ... rotate project views
