I have several holes and recesses in my slab that I only want to show in a few plan views.  The remaining plan views do not need the holes showing for clarity purposes.  They are holes for drains, recesses for plates, etc.  The families associated with them will not be cutting the holes & recesses.

 

Other than using invisible lines is there a method to do this?  Invisible lines are not a good solution for us.  This will be done in Revit 2014

Possible options

  • Turn off the floor and set your depth to top of floor.
  • Design option?

What's wrong with using the invisible line tool?

Unfortunately we need the floor to be shown because of various patterns that need to be shown.  So the floor must stay turned on at all times.  The invisible lines take about 30 seconds for each line.  Each view takes about 20 minutes to do the invisible lines.  We have several dozen views that this would have to occur in.  It's not a viable option.

 

What I had tried once before was to have a parameter that allowed me to turn off slab edges using a filter.  It worked for a couple of days then glitched.  After that it only turned the entire floor off.  I've never been able to get it to recreate the same effect even though I did everything exactly the same way.  Perhaps the glitch was when it worked and now it's working correctly.

If walls or other objects are sitting on the slab boundary, you could always override the line color for slabs to be white in those views. It may be less work to use the linework tool to change the boundary lines back to black rather than using it to turn the openings to invisible?

Try playing with parts. I’ve never done this before, so I can’t tell you of any pitfalls down the road, but it looks like you might be able to achieve what you’re looking for using parts.

Turn the slab into parts, set the visibility to show parts and insert any drains, recesses, etc. When switching parts visibility to show original, any slab cuts will not show. Hope it works for you.

I had this very problem and solved it by creating a filter -

If you 'override the graphic in view' for floors - by filter - and Override the 'Lines' (projection/surface) to be shown as White, it hides the slab edge of floors. 

Views that you want floor slab edges hidden - apply this filter. 

Hope this helps.

Forgot to add, if you just want selected floors to have their edge's invisible, edit the filter created by 'mark' and assign the same 'mark' to the floors which require edge's to be hidden.
