Hello, I work for an MEP firm and we are plumbing the underground portionof a garage slab that is sloped to the north from the south. The onlyparameters that the elevations will let me use is the levels. This howeverdoes little to help me because at one end of the building the level isflush with the slab, but at the other end of the building that flush levelnow is roughly 3 feet, or so off. I am not sure if this makes any sense,i have attached two pictures that will hopefully explain what i am talking about, one reflect the level being on the top of the slab, the other depicts the slope of the slab.

Thanksmuch Don

Levels are always flat. However, you can use a "reference plane" as the host for your pipes instead.

I have tried using reference planes but this does not seem to work for me.  Is there any chance you could explain alittle more about what you are talking about?

Revit actually performs sloped piping. Since levels must always be straight, you wouldn't want one that changes elevation because then the "bottom of pipe", etc parameters, mean nothing when they go to try and install it in the field. Instead, use the actual sloped pipe command to run it and it will give two seperate elevations from one end of pipe to the other in association with the level. However, I have found it easier to do this in an elevation/ section view opposed to plan view which usually wants to make things flat by default.
