I just recently began using revit, "converting" from ADT. I'm having a diifcult time trying to figure out how to create framing plans though. Even for a simple home addition, there doesn't seem to be any way to create floor and roof framing plans. I even reverted back to some AutoCAD ways (gasp!) and started just drawing them as lines over the plans, but now they show up on the floor plans. Is there a decent way to make this work?

Which version are you using? I believe in 6.0 they have a structural design option....

You can model up the framing using the structural tab, and then using structural columns and beams layout your framing. Although, i find this to be a little over the top. I usually just show indicative framework (all depends on how many views your talking about as to what the best option would be). As for the ACAD import showing up in all floor plans, when you import make sure you tick <current view only> otherwise revit imports the dwg as model lines instead of drafting lines. Regards, Chris.

You must "frame" the addition. Sounds simple until you put all those 2x 's in. In 6.1, you have to think like a structural engineer, so that the framing members to hold up the first floor will be drawn on the first floor - BUT actually will be UNDER the floor (so a reflected ceiling plan of the basement will show the 2x's. SO, you must either edit the families to change them to be the view range you need - not recommended for a new Reviteer - or think like an engineer. You can frame it, and it does look good, just pay attention....

IF YOU REVERT TO THE 2 DAY WAY, INORDER TO GET THEM NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR FLOOR PLANS IS TO TURN OF THAT LINETYPE IN VV. BUT IF YOU USED IT FOR SOMETHING ELSE THAT YOU MAY NEED YOU WILL TURN THAT OFF AS WELL. TO AVOID THIS MAKE A NEW LINE TYPE JUST FOR YOUR FRAMING LINES AND THEN WHEN THEY ARE TURNED OFF, ONLY THEY WILL DISAPPEAR YOU WILL HAVE TO TURN THEM OFF IN EVERY VIEW SINCE IT IS ALL VIEW DEPENDENT.
