Column-Wall snapping,

Column-wall snapping

 

In the screenshots below, when moving a column, the snap (endpoint) is working from its corner to the corner of the wall, but this endpoint snap doesn’t appear at the corner of the indicated layer of the wall!

 

Why there is no endpoint snap there?

 

Thank you

 

Best

 

Jamal

Many thanks for the help and the screenshot,

 

Snap is much easier than doing this with “align”!

 

Why the snap is still weak in the Revit? Snap is as the “soul” when it comes to drawings.

Place intersecting column grids in your plan at the locations you want. The columns will snap to the grid intersections.

Many thanks

 

What such difficult issue to have a snap at that corner of the wall?

Is this problem still in Revit 2013?

I haven't tried to snap column to a wall to in 2013. My work flow is a little different, I place my column grids then add columns then add walls. I can insert walls at corner point or center point of a column if I wnat too.

Many thanks for the answer.

 

As you know, many architects don’t start by grids! And thus columns are placed and then centre lines are then set. I’m talking about this case in particular.

 

I have the impression that the Revit needs a lot of enhancement in snaps.
