Having a problem with family items not being sectioned. The whole family appear in the section not just the portion of the family that is in front of the section line. Have attached some sketches illustrating the problem. Thanks Tony

This is a problem with certain kinds of families, it shows the entire family if any part of it is cut.  What is the object style of your family?

I realize this is an old thread, but this is exactly the same problem I am having now in RS2012 with several of my families. What is it about the family that should be changed to eliminate this behavior? You mentioned something about the object styles, but I don't see anything there that looks like it would change this, although I'm also not very familiar with the object styles function in Revit.

Search your HELP using the term cuttable.  That will show you what families can be cut.

Thank you! I had tried looking in the help and the Families Guide without any success, but I also wasn't sure how to describe my problem well in terms of searchable keywords.

Still trying to figure out sections in Revit versus our old autocad ways. Typically, we might show something in the foreground and something slightly in the background with any sloping framing in between in cross-section. In Revit, I have to move my depth of view out to encompass both objects (i.e. a purlin near the ridge and a beam actually at the ridge), which makes the edge angle that's sloping down across the purlins show up as an extruded section that isn't as easy to discern as it was in the ACAD sections that just showed it as a plane section. Is there any way to show a near zero depth section view so that sloped framing is still clear as a cross-section, but with background objects (i.e. a few inches away) stil showing up in the section? Hopefully the ACAD section and my current Revit attempt that are attached will help explain what I'm after. Thanks again!

Sometimes it is best to add a detail element and turn off the model element.  Or sometimes, you can just use the linework tool to turn off lines that obfuscate the detail....
