Why i cannot see the structure of a multilayer revit element like wall if i am not section it? The first and the second image is the same wall. In the second i used the section box. I don't understand why the structure isn't visible in the first image? Can i solve this?
Thank you for your answer.
I dont know much about parts but i have seen that if a wall has a join, the parts created from the same wall aren't joined too.
I think that its not correct to be invisible the structure of walls or slabs. You must always use section box to see the structure and made corrects joins.
And i have also see than when you join elements the material take off isnt correct. I believe that these are huge disadvantages of revit. We create bim models to have full control of a project, to make an as build project. If the point is only render we can use better products as 3ds max.
First of all thank you for your time.
1. I will have a better tool for create part features because right now I’m not very familiar with that.
2. In real life it's invisible if you place a finish material on it. If not toy will see the structure layer. Look at my example. In the first picture witch is an elevation view my wall does not extend to the end. The view isn't correct. In real life i will be able to see the structure of the slab. As you see it in the section view. Also before i place the wall i want to align the slab in the level one not to the finish material but to the core of the slab. [ I will say to that point that the slab must also has a location line like walls]. The layer structure isn’t visible if it has another material on it. If it’s not it must be visible. Another example: If i build a wall and not place something on its top like concrete or a marble i must see the structure of the wall. When i place the marble the structure will became invisible as in real life.
3. When i speak about joining i had in my mind joins with columns, beams floors etc. It’s a huge problem and i don’t know the percentage of the error. I also use AutoCAD, architecture desktop, 3dsmax. The main reason go with Revit is the material take off. I can visualize correctly a building with Revit (also i need to say that it’s difficult to place finish materials on the beams and the columns in the interior side) but i cannot take a quick material take off. To do that i forced to split the walls in columns ant attached their top in the bottom of the beams, to make a separate wall with only finish material and apply it outside and inside in the wall and in the beam separately. I also place the finish materials in the slabs as separate slabs with does not trim the walls and the finish material of the bottom of the slabs as a celling witch also does not trim the walls. I also place finish materials in the bottom of the beams in the place that there is no wall in the bottom or where that wall is thinner than the beam. All this coordination is very difficult and slow. I can made the same operations very quickly using the join command but then, as i said, the material take off isn’t correct.
