i am still fairly new to Revit and  I'd like to know how to create a section line, so when it's placed, the section will go under separate folder under project browser...say I want  to do window sections only and position them under Sections (Window Sections) not under Sections(Building Sections) Thanks in advance

Hi, I believe you have to use another type of section view, I mean the detail view: they can be plan or sectional view and you create them from 2d vertical views such as building sections. You can find the command under View>New view...You place the baloon of the detail and that's it. Another thing that you should do is to look inside the on-line guide for other possibilities you have within Revit, and also look at many other issues about the project browser organization.

Hope this could help you a little bit.

Thanks Paolo, i know that I can create detail view from a section etc. But what I'am looking for is custom made section line which looks different from building section and places all my sections separately under Project Browser.

For example I do landscape plans with lots of sections, which I don't want to mix with building sections and even i don't want building sections to appear on my plan

cheers

Hi, I'm sorry for the misunderstanding, now it's clearer...By the way, here's what I did: draw a section line, go to File/load from library/annotation/section tag> another tag; go to Settings/view tag/section tags duplicate and rename (for example landscape), choose the new section tag for both the section edges; select the section line, press the properties button, duplicate and rename (again Section Landscape), then choose landscape for section tag, hit ok until you go back to the view, you should have a new type of section in your view and a new category, named Section:landscpae in your project browser.

I was not able to set different styles for the section lines because you can control only one system family like section lines. 

 

Hope this would be more appropriate to your question.

 

See you

I forgot to tell you that now you have 2 types of section you can switch, but by default you have the building section: use the type selector to change the section type.

For organization of your browser, you can add a shared parameter to sort your view by.  REVIT will automatically give you some default information such as floor plan, elevation .... and you can sort by those but that doesn't give me enough folders.  Just add a shared parameter for your sheets that furthur defines your views.

Thanks Paolo, it makes more sense now. I didn't get how I control the visibility of this two section types-I want Building Sections to be hidden in the view and Landscape Sections visible

Mister WWHub, can you please explain  how you add shared parameter...I know that you can go to Settings>Project Parameter>Add and make a new name to get it to project browser...but I when I selected shared parameter it didn't work..i'am lost

thanks all for your time
