Have you tried changing the view clip settings?
When you are in the plan view you want to modify, with nothing selected go to the properties palette.
Find the "Depth Clipping" setting.
Change it from “No clip” to “Clip with line” or “Clip without line”.
Does that accomplish what you are trying to do?
If you follow Joe's advice you will get nowhere. That's because
this mass has to be cut with a void in the mass editor. It WILL
NOT cut with the view range Depth Clipping set to Clip with line.
The only reason it LOOKS like that's what I did, is because I
did some Revit gymnastics. I sent it out as a dwg and brought
it back into the family editor and loaded it into the project and
THEN it will cut with the view range.
Depends a lot about what you want to do and how you want to do it.
Your solution of taking out and bring in the mass is quite right I believe.
Do you think there can be some setting soemwhere to show the below portions of the mass or make the lines type/ colour of these lines to white or invisible although it is present?
Also it would be great if you can share how your great techniques of taking the mass out and in.
1. In a 3D wireframe view of this mass, and from the
Application menu, export to dwg.
2. Give it a name and save on your desktop. (Uncheck
Export views on sheets... probably doesn't matter)
3. Application menu> New> Family> Generic Template.
4. In the family editor, Insert Tab> Import CAD.
5. Change colors to black and white, (probably already
black), then click on the dwg on your desktop.
6. Don't touch anything in the family editor just click
load into project.
(Although you will probably want to take it back into
the family editor to scale it).
7. Then in the project, place that component on level one.
There is absolutely no need to do this in CAD, then import CAD into Revit, and all that. The OP should do some research about this topic. It is already explained in Wikihelp. Start from "Mass Floors Overview".
I think a forum is a good place for orientation and discussion, but should not be understood as a replacement for training.
Like I said, unless you cut it with a void in the mass editor, that's
what you have to do.
Unless Alfredo can show us a third way. Let's all wait and see
what he comes up with.
I don't disagree with your holistic approach to learning Revit,
but the OP wanted to know how to cut this geometry in plan with
the view range. They even posted images of what they thought
it should look like. That's why I asked them several times to be
sure what they wanted to do.
I did tell them about cutting the geometry in the mass editor,
but that's not what they wanted to do. When I showed them
how to do what THEY wanted to do, they knew that was what
they were looking for.
