Hi,

First of all, this is my first post. So sorry in advance if this post is not in the right section. My English can also be a bit janky(I’m form the Netherlands).

Now my question.

I am working on a family in Revit to create an annotation that needs to be visible in multiple views. 

 

Changing the: ‘Head’ and ‘Tail’ of a section and deliting the text is easy enough, and it gives me the result that I am looking for. However. I don’t want to create a section view with every line I place, since that is not necessary. 

Do any of you know a solution? It would help a lot!

 

Thanks in advance.

Annotation lines are 2D and only visible in the view they are created in.  You are apparently using a section to overcome that problem but I believe that is a mistake.  Why not create a family with 3D linework in a category that you can control turning it on/ off?

I'll give it a try, but I am quite unfamiliar with that method. Witch template should I use, and will it be able to show the same as a section?

You don't say what views you want this to show in so here is one that shows in plan and elevations.  Obviously you would want it off in 3D but the 3D view kind of shows how it was built.  I didn't take any time to make the elements the same in all views. 

 

The attached family is 2014 - modify as needed.  If you are using an earlier Revit - too bad - you don't say in your post and I won't rebuild this.  The lines are a new sub-category under generic that can be controlled in any view.

I want it to show in plan views and sections.

However, i think i found a way to do this. The family in the attachement is approximately what I was aiming for!

 

Thank you for the tips!
