I am bringing some AutoCAD details into Revit and changing over all of the layers, txts, dimensions etc. and there are a few isometric details that have dimensions on them.  I know that the Revit dimensions are ref. plane associated but I cannot figure out how to place isometric dimensions in the drafting views since they are not truly drawn in 3D.  Is this even possible without faking it?

You could create a design option and do these lines as 3D .... but oh what a pain!  I think I would keep as a CAD linked file.

 

AND I absolutly hate that thought!

Let me make sure I'm clear; the AutoCAD drawings are NOT 3D, but you want the dimensions to remain 3d looking?

The drawings that I brought in from AutoCAD were just some Isometric details.  I am not redrawing them at all, all I am doing is updating the line types, fonts, and dimensions so that they match our new REVIT standards and I cannot create an isometric dimension in revit.  I attached a screen shot of what I am talking about.  I fudged the dimensions by just making them using line types and text instead of actual dimensions because I cannot get the angle of the dimension I need in a Drafting View.

I am having the same problem, have had it for years and still have not found a solution. In the attached image, the dimension line is at a 90 degree angle to the reference lines. Since this is a 60 degree axonometric (its a drafting view) i want the dimension to be 60 degrees as well, like i have shown in pink. Does anyone know a solution to this? My work around has always been to draw some tiny 'fake' lines (so small you cant seem them when you print) and have the dimensions reference those instead of the actual lines I am trying to dimension. 

using 2011.

On true - 3D images, locked views, you can dimension in 3D but what you want, you will have to fake.  Put in a point to dimension to and over-ride the dimension.  The text and dimension will not be skewed though.
