I like to do in my egress plan a cut plane at 4' above associated level, and then I want to set the top level to see the reflected ceiling plan, so I can see overlaid the exit signs and emergency lights above. I'n changing the top clip and nothing works, nothings changes... really annoying

Only changing the cut plan shows them, but then I don't see the doors cut. Underlay RCP doesn't work either.

REVIT will not do what you want. "Show the floor plan properly and also see the ceiling. One of the best work arounds believe it or not is to place the floor plan and the ceiling plan views right on top of each other on the sheet view. Use a Guide Grid to lin them up.


The MEP people have been screaming for a solution to this forever because they want to see the equipment etc on the floor + the ceiling elements and REVIT just will not do it. The main problem is Ceiling information only shows up in Reflected Ceiling Views. That needs to get fixed. It's a huge problem.

If you are using Revit 2016 and have the current updates, I believe you can see the lights above in your floor plan view by adjusting the underlay settings to "look up".

Johnzo - thanks for pointing this out - I had not seen this yet and I don't believe it is listed in the new features.


NOTE:  This feature or functionality is available only to students and to Autodesk Maintenance and Desktop Subscription customers for Revit 2016 software releases.
