Use the Split tool and/or Dimension them and use the EQual.

So you have to draw a line, split it randomly, dimensions it, apply the equal setting, delete the dimensions, then click ok to remove the constraints.  That is SO revit!  Has there been any progress on this in the past 4-years?

This is totally not useful (apart from showing up Revit), but let me introduce you to the magic way of ArchiCAD - select how many divisions you want, hover, click, done.

After at least two years of using both programs, it mystifies me how Autodesk and Revit in particular are still market leaders.

If this were an archicad site, your post might be useful.  I see you have never posted an answer to any questions.  This site works because users contribute time to answer question, upload families and ask quality questions.

Is not enciting a little healthy competition useful? I feel all users should know what other programs are doing so they can expect better from their providers.

It's a 7 year old thread, and if Revit haven't done anything to streamline this process then I'd like to call them out.

All of those things can be done in revit using the array tool currently available and with a little bit of user understanding. Revit does not need to waste its time and resources on something that is already possible. But hey if Archicad wants to spend its time developing array tools then its no wonder they are not leading the industry. Thanks for enticing the healthy competition though.

Also I doubt Archicad can array with shifts on all 3 axis at the same time, because guess what, Revit can.

The array tool can do it, as I've just tested, but it involves adding more lines as is less efficient.

The OP didn't really get the answer of:

  1. create a detail line
  2. use the array too and select 'last' instead of '2nd' (that's the clincher)
  3. move the distance you want to divide
  4. select the number of arrayed objects you'd like

I'm not saying that Revit falls down in every respect, there are definitely things it does better, just that some better user development would be nice. And no, ArchiCAD can't do 3 axis arrays, but next time I need it, I'll post how Revit can do it on the ArchiCAD boards. There are things they could learn from each other, and aren't we all trying to get the most out of a program that costs £1,700 a year.

Hi, I just came here to find if there were a way to simply divide or mark snap points in a element other than half and end points, (like for example divide or mark snap point in a wall by thirds) and found 1- that Autodesk haven't see a basic straight forward tool or function that is very handy and useful, like always. And 2nd- found this friendly healthy competition, but honestly, I use Revit a lot more than Archicad because is the standard in the office I work for, but I want to say that Archicad has a more complete array tool than Revit, and a lot better working snap points and reference lines. And BTW Archicad can array in the 3 axis at the same time. Anyway, wich one you think is most useful, how many times in a project do you use an array in the 3 axis at the same time? and how many time you need a simple operation like marking divisions in a sapce like divide the space in 3 or 5, etc? Just somethink for you to think about it.

Came across this thread as I was figuring out a way to equally divide arcs/angles.  It seems to me that Revit developers (people more experienced in coding than I) could write something that combines the split tool and the equal dimension functions to make an easier way to get equal angles rather than having to use array.

My two cents

Please, let me know if there is an easier way. Thanks!

Hi. As how I was doing it, I draw a Line, then export the line in Autocad, there draw an Autocad line, divide it, after import it into revit. SEEMS LIKE A LONG WAY TO GO, BUT ACTUALLY VERY FAST. WHAT, 4MINUTES IS NOT THAT MUCH, COMPARING TO THE OTHER PERKS THAT REVIT GIVES YOU. THANK YOU.
