hey all

am working on a 3-story medical center building, will be our first revit project (yay!)

but I am having a few problems that I can't seem to figure out:

1. the west elevation view is not showing up at all. I click on the elevation camera, and the floor level markers show up but the building view does not. the camera is placed correctly. any ideas?

2. when I click on the "ground floor" plan view, I get what looks to be items that are on the "site" plan view. the ground floor items appear dashed. when I click on the "site" plan view, I get all of the items that are supposed to be on the ground floor. I queried an interior partition wall, and the properties indicate that it is placed on the ground floor but it is only showing as a dashed line in that view. ??

3. how do I prevent interior partitions from showing up dashed in other floor plan views?

1. Your view may be clipped (or stopping) before it hits the builidng. Select the marker and check the view properties; generally we do not clip exterior elevations and do clip interior ones.

2. Check your view properties. Just because someone called it site doesnt mean that it is set to the correct level. As a test you can try cut/ pasting some of your problem geometry into an out ofthe box template and see if that works. Otherwise you will have to go through and see what the host level is and work with your cut plane, etc to get it to read correctly.

3. Are you using phasing? Thats the only way that i can think of that walls would show up dashed; either the wall is demoed (just dashed) or a temporary partition (dahsed and filled with a hatch). If not you can try attaching the 1st floor walls to the second floor slab so that they stay below the spab. Just realize that the wall will always snap to the bottom of slab until you detach them; even if you set the height to unconnected and 1".


Basically work with your view properties and view ranges. This should be covered in the beginner class but sometimes i have seen it in the intermediate/ advanced class. Either way you should be trained on view properties, ranges, visibility/ graphics and the like before you attempt your first project. Otherwise you are in a lot of these kind of issues. Alternatly you can run through the tutorials and help file and see if that explains it. But there are a lot of quarks that you will learn from using or better yet from someone who already knows what they are.
