I know Revit and AutoCAD are totally separate beasts, but I would really like a command similar to "Mid Between 2 Points" in AutoCAD.  I would use this in 2D while modeling walls and drafting details...anyone heard of a macro or something similar that would accomplish this?  I just feel like I waste too much time drawing lines and snapping to the mid-point...

 

Mini-Background to my question: I work at a Structural Engineering firm and draft architectural and structural construction documents.  On some projects I have no choice but to dead draft some details and want to become more proficient.  I use AutoCAD and Revit 2015 and am trying to not think AutoCAD while in Revit, but this is one place where a little cross over would be much appreciated.

A line and snap to midpoint is just about the same as the CAD midway between two points.   No help for you here.

 

Work at just using Revit for your drafting details.   It won't be long before you realize that simple drafting in Revit is far easier and faster then CAD.  I started with AutoCAD 2.6, wrote my own lisp routines and was very good in CAD.  Did not like some parts of Revit to begin with too but not anymore.

 

BTW.... Unless your details need to be portable between projects, it is often more effecient to cut a model view section or detail and use as much model elements as you can and sometimes after using the model as reference, you just turn off all model elements in VG.

I do try to cut/use as many live sections and details as possible...sometimes I do industrial jobs where it is easier and quicker for me to just draft because our turnaround time is such that trying to model a grain silo or pipe conduit lines correctly would take me too long at my current experience level...was hoping to be able to learn and practice more of that this winter but we haven't slowed down a bit so far!
