Happy Holidays everyone.   I am working on a two story building and using spot elevations to show ceiling heights.  The first floor works just fine.  The issue comes at the second floor.  The height displays the overall height, as in from grade not  floor to ceiling.  The Relative Base is set to current level and is grayed out.  What can I do to have this read the floor to ceiling not the overall?  Or is that not a posibility.  Thank you for your help.

Wow, nice contribution to the site! 

 

Sorry that nobody responded faster than 10 minutes.  You must be pretty young to be so impatient and demanding.

Wow, you are an angry man.  I was just posting to not waste you and your co-workers time.  I'm not impatient, just happy to find an answer.  I know its hard to read inflection, but it was not a jab at you guys.  I hope your day improves. Have a happy holiday season, whatever holiday you might celebrate.

The original poster never did add to the site by explaining how he/she solved the problem, that is what I complained about when he posted.

 

We use a ceiling tag that uses the "Height offset from level" parameter that is available for ceilings.  I don't remember if that is available in the standard ceiling tag or not but you can modify it if needed.

Forgot to add - if you want to use a spot elevation tag in a section or elevation view, you can modift that tag creating a new type that is relative to the hosted level.  See image

Hello, I have found this thread and thanks for these solutions. But if I want to show the ceiling height (I mean the distance between finished floors and finished ceilings, not the ceiling level) on floor plan, how to do? For ex, in some places, the floor is 200mm higher and the ceiling is 3200mm higher than the current level, that means the ceiling height must be 3000mm, but when I use spot elevation tag (relative type), it always shows 3200mm. I can create another level but it is not convenient since I have a lot of different floor levels. Is there any better solution for this issue? Thank you in advance.

As I wrote earlier, you can use a ceiling tag to show the height above floor.   Make sure the ceiling is set to the correct level and ...yes... if you floor level steps, you should have a level for each.   That doesn't mean a plan for each and you don't even need to see the level except where you want to.
