Hi, I am using Revit Building 2010 and I have a question.


How would I go about creating a hot/cold/sanitary/sewer riser diagram.  Oh yeah, and it would be oriented as an orthographic view as well.


You see, in CAD we could make the model an ortho view and just start drawing our lines along the x,y,z axis to create our riser diagram when viewed in paper-space.  Now, how would I take this same principal and do it in Revit?


Would it be a true Ortho view, or would I need to create a 3D view and just draw in the detail lines where necessary?

I think I read something to this affect in a previous post, although I could not find it again; raising another question... would my lines have to be in model or on the layout sheet of the view?

With MEP, you can create it from the model.

But, if you don't have MEP, then why do it as a 3D?  Just do it as a drafting view like you did in CAD.

Hi, sorry I'm just now getting back to this subject.


With Riser Diagrams, we can annotate the size of the lines, call-out a clean-out (and size)that is in-line, and any other lines that lead to a lavatory (LAV), toilet (WC), floor drain (and size), and shut-off valve locations.  We do this primarily to show the contractor how we want the lines run and the spacing.  This is also important for our concrete crew to see how to pour the floor so that these lines may be laid in place.

Somebody else once mentioned to do this type of thing in a detail view, which is what I may have to do.  This is the type of thing I could literally draw using lines along x,y,z axis in AutoCAD and then show a view as an ortho view, hiding all the layers with the exception of the linetypes and annotation layers.  I am just curious how to go about the easiest way of doing this in Revit.

You could try drafting it with model lines instead of detail lines, then set a 3D view to an ortho view.
