We're demolishing existing garage doors. I'd like to show demo'd walls on the new floor plan but I want to hide the demo'd garage door panels. I've tried the HIDE OBJECT tool, but this only hides it in display view. The garage doors still plot. I tried turning off the PLAN/RCP in FAMILY ELEMENT VISIBILITY SETTINGS but then the door won't show in our existing plans view. Anyone know a workaround? Thanks for your help btw. I'm the only user in our office who knows Revit. We're thinking of switching over from AutoCAD and I have to show that Revit does working drawings well. Post edited on 2005-08-10 16:35:28

Hmm that's a tough one... Best bet is most likely going to be a filled region.. As your options are turn off doors... (Lose all doors) Demo the doors in a different phase (not recommended) It's a bit of strange one as usually one would show all demolished elements on a demolition plan then have a new construction plan show new work... Rather than bits of demolished elements + new elements?

Yeah it is kind of a unique case. I'm just trying to clean up the drawings a little. The demo'd garage doors obstruct the new (smaller) windows that we are putting in its place. It's a small job and we'ld like to show new walls and demo'd walls on the same plan. We can, it just gets a little confusing at the garage doors.

On small jobs where you want to show demo and new in the same view, it sometimes makes sense to simply delete or never place an item (like the garage doors) and just use linework to show your demo. In the case of gargage doors being infilled with a new wall, I simply edit the wall profile to make what would have been the opening of the garage door, them place a new infill wall with the windows in it. Un-Revit like I know, but I only use for really small stuff where an actual demo plan is not needed. HTH Tom

We also like to show new and existing elevations beside eachother. I suppose I'd have to use linework on the elevation to show the existing garage door in elevation.

The other option would be to create a garage door family that is for demo purposes only. It could cut the wall with an opening and have very simple geometry so as to behave in a cleaner fashion on your plans and elevations. Tom

It looks like the best solution when something is obscured by an object is to temporarily hide the object and use the LINEWEIGHTS tool to override the obscuring object.
