Help! Default Views Missing

192 Views, 3 Replies

My class opened Revit today to do a tutorial. However, the default views were messed up. There was only 1 floor plan. I have used Revit before, and I know that this is not right. For example, there was only 1 level, and there were no elevation views even present. Has anyone had this problem before, and how do you fix it?

Is the View missing or the entire Level? Either one should be easy to recreate by creating a new View or Level.


A new Revit Project only begins with two levels because that is what the default Project Template defines. Has a different Template been selected or has the original template been modified?

Thanks, but for some reason the problems my class was having just disappeared.

If you create a new project with no template specified you will get what you describe.  The project will have nothing and basically 1 level in it.  I suspect that is what happened.  You started without a tempalte or did not have access to it when the class was making new projects.
