Hello! I'm trying to figure out how to apply detail lines to sloped floors and make them visible in all views. Is this possible? I really need them to follow slope. I am using RAC 2012.Thanks.

Cut a section through your ramp.  Goto that section and create a reference plane along the ramp and name it.  Then in plan, set your work plane on this plane and draw your model lines.

Great! I'm assuming this only works with ramps, then?

Thank you so much for your help, btw.

Nope, it's irrelevant of the ramp.

Note that WW said draw 'Model Lines'. This makes them visible in other views as well.

'Detail lines' are only in the view they are greated.

You are only using the ramp to gain the reference plane angle.

You could have used a sloping floor or roof or wall or almost any surface.

Try setting a workplane by picking a surface n a 3D view and then draw model lines in 3D on that surface.

Righteous! For some reason when I tried this earlier, it wouldn't work, but I was obviously missing a step. It works great! Thanks a lot for your help. You've truly helped my firm out in a great way. May 2012 be a prosperous year for you all!

Thanks again,

Now to really pick your brains.....now that I've created some paver lines on a sloped surface, I went a step further and modified the sub-elements of the 'floor' and it has curve to it now. The lines now bleed into the geometry. Is there a way to get them to attatch to a curvacious surface, or am I trying to get Revit to do something that it's incapable of? 

Thanks,

I think it's a tedious process because the only way you can draw a model line line is on a work plane. You then have to come up with small pie-shape work planes along the curve to connect your model lines at they slope down.

May i ask why you are not applying a surface pattern?

Triangulation planes.....hmm..does sound tedious, but possible. Thanks.

And to coreed, we are a landscape architecture firm and when some of our floors have curve to them, when I apply a pattern to the floor, it becomes triangulated. So, my next step would be to split the face and paint that material on the face, which works great until some of the elevations create curves. Then, I'm stuck.

mbsteve,

 

The problem is not a pattern on flat floors.  The problem is patterns don't work on warped surfaces. I don't understand why they don't because they work somewhat on spheres.

What about model fill patterns? It works on curved/warped surfaces.

WW,

This is sloped and warped.

So MBSteve, now that you have your fill pattern on a curved sloped surface, how would you adjust the pattern from here. For example, instead of having a portion of a paver at one side could I align the pattern to the edge of the surface, as to get an accurate paver count. I realize that in a real world scenario we will have cut pavers at some ends, but not all, unless specified. 

Thanks,

you aren't really going to count the bricks, just figure out the pattern, how many sq. ft. it covers, and there will be waste, and cuts, depending on the experience of the mason, he will be able to figure out a percentage, or you could just add the perimeter ft. to the s.f. and figure you will lose much of the perimeter foot that will be cut.
