Hi I used the following method to create views that have the buildings square on their sheet  with the entry to the building at the bottom, but the elevation markers stay  squared to the actual layout of the project in mode space , not rotating with the view.

I have rotated them manually to be perpendicular  to the face I need the elevation of, but its not accurate and all of them are slightly off axis.

 

How can one rotate elevation view markers accurately..Im desperate!!!

 

Thanks

 

 

Rotate a single view in Revit

In Revit, the structure is designed in the direction of either project north or true north. Many requests have been made to rotate a single view 90 degrees for placement on a sheet. This can be a very dangerous if you do not know what you are doing because rotating a view will change the entire direction of the project, which is WRONG.

To rotate a single view:

1. Duplicate the view.

2. Turn on the crop region.

3. Choose MODIFY and select the crop region.

4. Use the ROTATE command to turn the crop region, which will turn the view.

Select the elevation and press rotate, you can then rotate it to any angle you wish, or if you make a new elevation and drag it close it'll align itself to your project then drop it and move it after when it's picked up the right angle

Thanks for your reply Kardiff,

 

I have rotated them manualy but they are all ever so slightly off axis  and I cant get them exactly perpendicular to the face of the Elevation.....Will drawing the markers close on existing elevations make them allign them self too?

Hei,

maybe too late, but I've just figured out the way haw to do it. I was desperate as well. The trouble is - to find the exact angle to rotate elevation. Here's what I've done: Open elevation view that is needed to be rotated, draw a reference plane perpendicular to the plan (perfectly vertical with other words), this refplane will appear in plan in exactly 90 degrees to your trobled elevation. Now it is possible to measure the angle between this refplane and wall or grid or whatever you need, will be something like 89,99989. Rotate elevation in a ususal way then. Worked for me, able to place dimension on objects that were 'not not exactly orthogonal' before.

The default NSEW elevations are not view dependent, they are project.  They relate to the built-in North up convention.  Learn how to use the rotate the project tool.  Then they will rotate correctly.

 

Read up on project position and survey position in your help as well as rotate /relocate the project.
