WAS WONDERING IF IT WAS POSSIBLE FOR WHEN YOU DEMOLISH A WALL OF WINDOW ETC, IF IT COULD BE MADE TRANSPARENT SO THE NEW WALL UNDERNEATH CAN SHOW THROUGH!

Typically you want to show the new wall as constructed in the new phase which exists after the demo phase and have a different view in which the new wall shows and the demolished wall does not show.

i am having a similar problem with topography.

the thing is that when u demolish an object, u can change its linetype to show as dotted... but there is no way of turning off the mass / opacity of that object to show thru the new construction.. atleast not without making it wireframe.

.. if there is a way to do this ... id be glad to hear it !

You would do this in a new view with the view phase set to New Construction.  In this view the demolished wall will not show.

So you have two views:  Level 01 Demolition & Level 01 New Construction.  Level 01 Demolition shows the demolished walls as dashed and Level 01 New Construction shows only the new walls and any left over existing walls that are not being demolished.

There are some very good tutorials in Revit dealing with how phasing works.  When in doubt look for a tutorial or check the help menu, it's really quite helpful.  :-)

YES TRUE FOR MAJOR JOBS WE SHOW THE NEW FLOOR PLAN THEN THE DEMOLISHION PLAN BUT MY MAIN ROLE IN OUR COMPANY IS ALTERATIONS AND ADDITIONS, SO WITH MANY OF MY JOBS THERE ARE A  COUPLE OF WALLS, WINDOWS, DOORS ETC, TAKEN OUT, SO THERE IS REALLY NOT NECESSARY TO DO 2 PLANS, AS WE SHOW THE DEMOLISHED AND NEW CONSTRUCTION ON THE SAME PLAN. SOMETIMES I JUST HAVE TO CHEAT AND CHANGE THE VP TO "NEW CONSTRUCTION" AND DRAW THE WALLS IN DEMOLISHED LINES. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS IF SOMETHING NEEDS CHANGING YOU NEED TO REMEMBER TO CHANGE BACK YOUR VP TO CHANGE THE ACTUAL WALL BEFORE THE DETAIL LINE!
