I'm building a phased plan in Revit 2013.  All my existing doors, walls, etc. that are being demolished are showing up fine  in the demo plan-- dashed.  Though, I would like the cuts for new doors in existing walls to show up dashed.  That is, I would like the new cut to show up dashed.  So far, they do not.  I can see the infill  Help has been little help and I haven't found any tutorials that address this issue.

The specifics are:

Wall is; Phase created: Existing, Phased demoed: None.

Door is; Phase created: New Construction, Phase Demoed: None.

Existing Plan; Filter: Show All, Phase: Existing

Demo Plan; Filter: Previous + Demo, Phase: Demo

Proposed Plan; Filter: Previous + New, Phase: New Construction.

There's a pdf attached with the area in question bubbled in the Existing, Demo, and New Construction phases (Counterclockwise from top left)

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

you have to use phase filter in view properties

and you can custumize it also..

It looks like you are using a demo phase. Most people you talk to will tell you that demo is not a phase. If you decide to use a demo phase you have to use a few view filters to get some infill walls, doors and windows to show correctly in demo and proposed views. Add a project instance parameter to doors, windows, walls, etc. categories. Give your infill wall a value of "demo." Use a view filter in your demo plan to override the infill wall so it graphically shows as demo.Hope that helps.

You don't demo in existing phase, demo in new.

Thanks for your responses.  I have a few questions:

dinghot.  Are you referring to the "Show Previous + Demo" Phase Filter?  The infill wall for the new door to be added in the New Phase

duarte & WWHUB:  If I don't do a demo phase, to what phase should my demo plans be set? 

WWHUB, the door in question is not being demolished.  It's a new door.  If I demo things in the "New" phase, I'm not sure how I would get my demo plan to show up accurately. 

Finally, I suppose I have a different understanding of working with phases.  duarte, can you suggest a tutorial that describes your method.  The one's I've seen have directed me to the method I have in place.

 

Thanks!

View phase settings and view name are two different things.  We demo in new and our demo plan shows correctly as our new plan does.  See attached.

Gotcha.  I wasn't confused about the differnce between phase settings and view name...but thanks for clarifying Winking

I was confused about how I would create a demo plan with no demo phase.  I messed around a bit and figured it out:

Demo and new construction both occur in the "New Construction" phase, as you all have pointed out...and phase filters

change based on the view (Show Previous + Demo for demo and Show Previous + New for proposed).

Thanks again for your help.
