RAC 2008 - I have a set of clearstory widnows that are above the normal cut plane.  When I create a plan region around them and adjust the cut plane to see them, the come in fine.  the problem is that it kills the doors, walls, and other objects below.  Normally in CAD, we show the clearstory as a dashed line in the normal cut plane of the plan.

 

Any ideas on how to have TWO cut planes in the same spot?  I assume my other option is to create seperate clearstory (we have 3 different walls with them) plans and rely on those along with elevations.

Can you somehow modify the clerestory so that there is a dashed line that appears below the actual window height?

That is what i want - I would like to have a dashed line indicating the clearstory above.  How do I get it to come out without manually drawing in the line?

Has this issue been resolved in Revit 2010? I understand using Plan Regions for Clerestory windows that are over objects and then using the Linework tool and the Show Hidden Tool to make clerestory windows have a different linetype and then whatever is under them appear solid. I havent found a way to make plan regions be a wireframe Model Graphics view inside Hidden Line Model Graphics View. But when its a clerestory window that is above a lower window/door, I want to show the Clerestory window to have a different linetype and be transparent to show the lower window beneath it and still dimension to the clerestory window. Any ideas?

What I would do (not sure if it is the best way, but it works) is to draw the lines you want to see in plan in the window family so that when placed into the project you will be able to see it. You could also add a visibility parameter to turn these lines on and off if you want. HTH

Took your advice and added hidden lines in to the family and set them on a plane so that no matter what the sill height is, the hidden lines will remain static at 3' above the ref. level. I didnt turn on the show when cut either. Did a test run and the hidden lines wouldnt still show up on the clerestory windows. they would show up on the other windows that were also cut through with the view range. What you suggested makes sense. Im probably not doing something right with my view range to show those lines. What i ended up doing instead was that since its a clerestory between level 1 and 2, i just showed the windows as hidden beneath the clerestory roof on my level 2 plan and still dimension to them and tag on level 2. If it were strictly a 1 story house, i could just do that on my roof plan. Revit should have a Show Above tool like its Show Hidden tool.

Two things:

 Add a visibility parameter to your lines so you can turn them on and off in the project

 Revit does have a "show above" tool. For example, if you are on Level 1, go to the view properties, change underlay to Level 1 and then change the underlay orientation to Reflected Ceiling Plan. This won't show your clerestory window, however, but is useful if you want to show roof overhangs and such
