Is there a way you can cut a section through a family and imported dwg file?I remember I could import the file as mass and explode it in Revit 2009, the section will show up.What's the best way to do it in 2010? Thanks in advance.

The family has to be cuttable - look in the help for cuttable families.

It's cuttable.

But the elements beyond the section viewable range are also seen, how can I avoid that?

Remember... if any part of a family is cut by the view plane, the family will show (if not cuttable).  So look at what is showing and see if that is your pronblem...  You can always hide in view.

In the family editor, the family has to be set to a cuttable category under settings / categories.

Thanks.

What about the imported dwg file?  How can you make it cuttable?

I found some that I can do after doing the partial explode.  Some don't work at all no matter whether it's full / partial explode.  I got an error message saying the 3d data can't be exploded.  What's the alternative solution for this?
