I am having some trouble understanding the cut plane setting in plan views for different family tipes in Revit.

I have a casework family that is not cutting in plan with the cut plane setting (top in img01)

The same family, when saved as generic model, cuts in plan with the cut plane set in the view range settings (bottom img01)

the casework family appears as if the cut plane is set at an 1,50m offset, the generic model family is being cut at an 0,05m offset, the way I set it in the view range settings.

Why does it work like this? is there a way to make other family tipes work like the generic model type?

Casework does cut so something else is going on here.

 

Are you using the exact same family and just changing the category for this test?

The reason I ask is because Revit does some strange things if you change the plan view range in the family.

Yes, i just changed the category and saved the file with another name, and then loaded it to the project.

all the rest is exactly the same. I tried with other categories as well, but the only one that was cutting was generic model.

I have another casework family in the project that is 2,10m high and elevated 20cm from the floor. After messing with the cut plane i saw that it seems to have 3 behaviors: below 0,20m it does not appear, from 0,20 to 2,30 it appears as if it was cut at a height of 1,50m, above 2,30 it appears uncut and seen from above. Since this is an ordinary cupboard I have no problem with this, but if it changed in plan as it goes up as the other one, i would be stuck with only one representation of the object cut in plan.

Since the other family is shorter than 1,50m, it is never cut in plan. Is it supposed to work like this, am I doing something wrong or is it a bug?
