HELLO

I'm experiencing a really weird glitch in my revit file. Other projects in the revit are ok. When zooming the lines they start to glitch and jump around so they look like they are not aligned. When you zomm even closer sometimes they appear they are aligned but id you go closer they are next to each other. Im talking about zoomin just a tiny bit so its not super close.

Im working in revit 2017.

 

Its really annoying as I'm working on detailing and even I know the lines are aligned they appear they are not.

 

PLEASE can someone help me?

 

MANY THANKSLUBA

Are these in a CAD import?

If CAD is not the issue, then it may be your graphics card. If you can dimension perpidicular from one line to the other then the lines are aligned, Revit will not dimension otherwise.

Run a true horizontal line and then dimension from that to your other line.  If it will not dimension, then they are NOT aligned.  Question answered, your model is not what you think it is.

Revit see the lines as on top of each other - snapped or aligned just name it. Bt when I zoom just a tiny bit the pink line jump on the right or left so it looks like its 1mm from the mster line. 

I cant run a dimension between th epinka nd grey lines because revit thinks they are on top of each other.

Aw come on!

Draw your line far enough above the model to be able to dimension it!!!!  It can be 1', 10' or 100' away.... what ever.

See the image in the attchment. Not sure what you mean. 

I use the alignement too and cant alig the pink line which is an editing line for the floor with the grey line (wall)

Put a horizontal dimension from that new line to your grey building line.   IF YOU CAN'T DO THAT THEN YOUR GREY LINE IS NOT PARALLEL!

Hi

 

Thanks for your help but i think you are misunderstanding.

its not about whether lines are parallel or not - they are.

 

imagine two lines sitting on top of each other that are parallel and aligned - however when you zoom in, they jump around and appear to be no longer aligned. In reality they are still aligned but they appear not to be.

That will not happen unless the lines are not parallel and are not CAD import lines.  If you would do what I suggest you could prove that the line is not parallel to your horizontal line.

This problem offten occurs because of CAD imports or sloppy 'drafting' where ortho is turned off.

I know whats happenning and it is only visual and only happens with sketch lines. See image for clarification. No fix for this as it is likely code related and has to do with where Revit is told to place the visual element and those coordinate numbers being rounded slightly.
