I've got an issue where beams/joists in my structure that are copied from an original are invisible, while beams that are placed one by one can be seen?? Anyone else have this problem? I'm using RevitBuilding8. I set one beam then did and array of 40 copies of that beam in section view, and they can't be seen in plan, only section!! What can I do other than do them one by one? Thanks

make sure your refrence level and work plane are set to your level... go to the properties of the beam

I see this is an old thread but I too am having issues with my beams only being visible in the elevation or section view, not in the 3D isometric view.  I have checked to ensure they were referenced to the correct level but still nothing is visible.  Any suggestions?

Try looking at the phasing of the copied objects.  Some times I noticed when things weren't showing up the phase was set to project completion.

Thank-you, I knew it was something simple...  I thought I had gone over everything but obviously didn't think to look there.  What an odd thing for REVIT to do.

This Revit behaviour is not 'odd' but very predictable.  Any Revit object that is pasted into a view will take on the phase that view is set to.  If you copy objects out of a view with a phase of 'existing' and paste them into a view with a phase of 'new construction' the pasted items will have the phase value of 'new construction'.
Setting up multiple views of the project each with the approriate phase and pasting objects into a correct view will alleaviate your frustration.
