I have a project that I am working on where we have stairs that go up to the second floor. When I'm on the second floor plan I can see the entire stair and there isn't a breakline like there is on the first floor. I need to know how to get the stair to show only the first few steps down just before it hits the roof element. I have attached a photo to show what I'm talking about.

Yep.... That has been a problem since day one for single story stairs.   Have you looked at using a section box?

I have not and I'm not sure I would know where to begin with a selection box. Would you be willing to walk me through that process?

Not sure this is a good solution but it is possible....  Set up a 3D view and add a scope box.  Push pull the limits to what you want.  Click on the top of the cube to go to a plan view.   You can lock to then add annotative items.

 

HOWEVER.... A probable better solution is just to use a masking region over the stair you don't want to see.

What I don't understand is why isn't the roof covering the part of the stair that the roof is over. I tried the mask and it will have to do for now.

 

Thank you!

Now this was a different question..."why isn't the roof covering the part of the stair that the roof is over?"...

Is it really covering the stair.... Cut a section.

Is the roof transparent by material or VG settings or is the view wireframe?

I have 2 roofs in this area and one roof is covering it and the other is not. All of them are visible in the second floor plan and I'm using a generic roof so there isn't really a material assigned. Could that be a problem?

I have attached the section it is hidden under roof 1 and showing under roof 2.

Do you possibly have a plan region in the roof 2 area?   Turn on Plan regions in VG/Annotation and see if you have one in that area.

…or, is this roof in different phasing, or turned off (by element)?

Everything is one phase. This is a ground up project.

You didn't answer the plan region question.

Even though they are the same generic roof, one can be set to transparent individually by over-ride.

Would that have been something I would have gone in and changed? Because if I have to manually change that  I don't think I would have done that... can you show me where I can find that information with a picture of the menu I'm supposed to look at? 

Thanks.

You don't say if you are the only one working on this project!  That is important.

 

Revit is very pridictable and what you are experiencing is caused by user modification or error.  In order for what you decribe to happen, there are only a few possibilities but you are the only one that can check them out.   If someone else has touched this project, then all of these are possible no matter what you say should be.  They are:

  1. Phases - MAKE SURE! Click on the roof that does not hide and look at properties.
  2. Plan region - I told you how to check
  3. Material setting.... Even though they are both the same, a material can be painted that is transparent.  Pick the remove paint tool and pick the roof that doesn't hide the stairs
  4. Element over-ride - Right click on the roof that doesn't hide then pick over-ride in view by element and check the surface transparency - must be 0.
