Hello

Firstly I am new to Revit, so my question may be an easy one to solve.

I am creating slabs at each level of my model, the outline of the slab originates from an Architectural AutoCAD drawing that I have imported.  My intention was the use 'pick' to define the outline.  This was going well until I got to a point where a spline has been used to set out a long length of a slab.  Revit just doesn't seem to be able to pick up the spline.  If I try to draw over it, I have nothing to snap to as the spline is still not recognised.  My only option is to eye it in but that is my last resort.

Any pointers would be much appreciated,

Jamie

Unfortunately what you've discovered is correct.  You will have to "eye" it.  You'll also find if you draw a spline in Revit and then offset it, the offset spline no longer has editable nodes...  For this reason i generally try to avoid spines and use arcs and ellipses instead.  But i understand in some cases its much easier to use a spline.

Thanks for that bit of info, I have "eyed" the slab edge in.  Not ideal, but if site work to 3mm tolerences on a concrete frame set out with a spline they are doing well. 

Another question regarding the same spline some 3 levels further up, can I split or trim it?  It doesn't seem to want to.  This is a real pain if I can't.  I'll be drawing the spline again if I can't.

Regards

Jamie
