Portions of window frames are disappearing when I try plotting elevations. Is this somehow the result of poorly generated window families or is this a bug in Revit that hasn't been resolved yet? I've resorted to using the LINEWEIGHTS tool to resolve the problem. Post edited on 2005-08-15 12:19:03

If the window frames are visable in the elevation view of the Revit project, yet don't plot, then what you have is a plotter or Windows print driver problem. If they don't show up in the Revit elevation then either you have incorrect settings for the elevation in terms of object styles, view depth etc., or the window family is constructed in a way that doesn't meet your expectations. Without more detailed information this is the best answer I can provide. Tom

When I zoom into the windows the lines seem a little thin. If I zoom out those portions of the window frame disappear. Post edited on 2005-08-15 15:52:07

Have you tried adjusting your object styles for the windows projection categories? See the attached file for an example. Tom

I tried changing object styles but it doesn't seem to help. I'm running into some strange anomalies. I also have windows in another wall that are acting like the opening is half the size. See attached images for both window problems. The windows seem fine in wireframe view, but in hidden line view both windows have issues. Post edited on 2005-08-16 13:15:32

I suspect it's something wrong with two walls that the windows are inserted into. Other instances of the same windows appear fine in other walls. When I change the walls from existing to NEW both problems are solved, but that doesn't help me because we'ld like to show existing walls in elevation. Post edited on 2005-08-16 18:00:28

Looks like a phasing issue. Are the windows new or existing (you mentioned the wall is existing). Set your view settings to the new construction phase and the phase filter setup to only show existing + new. After you clarify the phasing of the elements in question i can better resolve the issue. It could be that there is an infilling element in the existing walls that's not being cut by the new windows (was there existing windows here before?)...

They are new windows in an existing wall. The Phase Filter is set to Show Complete. If I set the Phase Filter to Show New the problems disappear (along with the existing walls). There are also existing doors that are to be demolished. It seems that where there is an existing door to be demolished the window frames appear fine, but where there is no door to be demolished the window frame disappears. Complicated problem. I sent the file to Autodesk yesterday but haven't heard back from them yet. Thanks for the help.

Well, I think I found a solution for disappearing window frames. If I change the existing wall to a new wall the windows are fine. I then have to overlap an existing wall with no windows (just the demo'd doors) so that our existing elevations are accurate. Unfortunately I end up with an existing and a new wall that overlap but it doesn't seem to cause any grief. Post edited on 2005-08-18 15:11:04
