There seem to be floating objects in my plots when they are plotted. They do not show up on the section view but when I do a plot preview or plot the drawing they are there. Any help would be appreciated. Attached are 2 screen shots of an elevation veiw.
Sometimes I get the same problem. When I have AutoCad Links turned on in the sections. But mine is usually random text objects. Try turning off imported objects and see if that works.
If AutoCAD dwgs are a part of the section, then I too have had problems with random junk showing up. I have found that using a seciton box when AutoCAD is involved gives me much better control of what is visible and what is not.
Have you submitted this to the development team?
I do not remember this comming up in discussions.
There are imported autocad objects in the drawing . It doesn't pay be to go back and recreate all the sections, there are too many. I am doing an inwall coordination on an emergency department and currently have 4 sections in each room , and there are about 40 different rooms. The general contractor did all the walls in revit, and set up all the sections, i am doing the mechanical, plumbing and electrical drawings and use AUTOCAD.
The only way I can get the drawings to plot out correctly is to go and export each room with the 4 sections on the drawing back to an autocad file, then print, which works fine. Just a lot of steps to something that should be compatibly and easy to do in Revit. An easier way would be appreciated.
Please have a look at the workaround described in the post below from our Product Support blog, the Revit Clinic.
