I'm trying to place model text on a family based sign using the rehost option.  However, as soon as the model text binds to the sign, it comes out facing the wrong direction and backwards.  How can I turn it around?  Mirroring it does not work.

I realize that I can trick Revit by coming in from the backside of the sign and poking through to the front, but the text will end up much deeper than necessary and show up through the transparent portions of the open open framed steel monument.  It will also ghost from the backside since that's where the text originates.

Also, I cannot find an offset tool to at least try the back of sign idea with an offset to the front.

It sounds like you are using the wrong face and the wrong elevation when you create this in the model.  I would re-create it from the correct elevation.

I think I figured out a workaround.  I created a reference plane in the actual model family itself.  Then I assign the text to that reference plane.  This way, when I move the sign around, the text goes with it.  I am no longer trying to rehost using the faces option.

I understand that I could have created a reference plane in the project itself, but it is a major pain to rotate, move the signage and text using such a method.

You don't need a reference plane but that will work.  You can always pick a face if there is one and use that.  BTW - Always name your reference planes so you can pick them when you need to.

Set Reference Plan first then create model text.....

 

Architecture tab--work plane--set---*click on your desired plane*---model text----place on plane
