Alright this one seems easy enough but can't track down the answer. Why is it when you do a properties on a view on a sheet that your only two options are 90 counter and 90 clockwise? How do you go about rotating something a full 180 in a view on a sheet? Example is we have plan views of our concrete panels that we place on a sheet under the elevations of those panels. Everything works well until you get to the North side where you need to rotate them around 180 to show correctly with reveals and such facing the right direction to match the elevation> any comments would be appreciated. Thanks

Not sure if this works with elevations, but in plans you can rotate a view any arbitary amount on a sheet. In the actual view (not the sheet), select its crop region and rotate the desired amount. NOTE the crop region doesn't actually move and the view itself rotates. HTH.

I tried this on a section/elevation/detail view and found 180° works perfectly, but when I try rotating by anything other than 180° the elevation/section/detail view flys off to an odd rotation (not the desired).

I have tried a few things like putting a minus before the degrees and subtracting the degrees from 360° and it still changes to an odd angle.

The reason we want to rotate it by these amounts is because we are trying to creat C-Sheets with elevations of each wall within a room. we want these elevations to appear like a fold out of the room and where we have angled walls we want the elevation to follow suit.

The attached files illustrate the issue quite well. The AutoCAD C'Sheet is an old example of what we are trying to achive. The Revit is where we have got.

Any ideas?

Kind of figured out a solution for this. If you creat a callout from the elevation or section any rotation works.

It is strange why this cant be done in all view types though!

If you do know how to do it to other view types like sections, I would still be keen to find out.

 

Cheers

Can't believe that this is not resolved...  Most room loading/ff+e drawings are laid out with the wall elevations 'folded down' from their plan positions.  I cannot understand the purpose of providing 90 degree rotations but no others.

 

Any further advice on this topic out there?  Or is it a 'submit to the constraints... erm power of revit' scenario?

side75,

You wrote "Most room loading/ff+e drawings are laid out with the wall elevations 'folded down' from their plan positions.".  Sorry but this is not true here in the states.  The last time I saw elevations like this was over 40 years ago and then, only on residential.

WWHub - perhaps it has to do with the predominant sector one works in.  Until a couple years ago I worked in Cali and before that in Canada.  In both jobs I had to produce room loading drawings in this fashion (albeit almost always in the context of educational projects).

Nonetheless, until we're at the point where people are using tablets on site to access pertinent information (ie still reliant on 'paper') then this is arguably the clearest way to set out rooms.  I find it a little baffling that a programme as powerful as revit cannot take this  in it's stride.  It just seems illogical that one can rotate, but only one angle in 2 directions.

You can always create a normal view, freeze drawing, then rotate that 2D view and place that on your sheet.

 WWHub - thanks for the tip.  I am quite new to revit, but I have scoured some of these forums enough to want to avoid the drawing freeze option.  For now I am doing a callout of my original ele, as I can rotate the callout.  It's not a nice workaround, but at least it keeps the information live.

My suggestion does not lock you into a 2D solution.  The real, 3D view is your working view.  Change that whenever needed then re-freeze the view and replace the old one.  A little extra time but not much.  You might even look at the 2D view being a linked CAD.
