Plan Region Display Problems

515 Views, 5 Replies

I have a roof plan where I am showing a high roof and low roof on the same view. I created a plan region around the low roof area and set the cut planes accordingly to show that roof. The walls under the low roof do not correctly display the existing walls losing the phase half tone and hidden lines. See the attached image. I can pick away at the walls one at a time to override the lines, but that is a PITA. Is this a bug problem with Revit 2014 Design Suite or a user problem?

 

Thanks,

Arthur

Thank you for the file. After some research it looks like the issue is due to the fact that the walls on the lower level are outside of the View Range of the Plan Region, and as such, they do not respond to the phase graphic settings. The reason you can see the walls, is that they are within the View Depth of the Plan Region. To fix the issue, lower the View Range of the Plan Region so that it hits the top of the lower walls (set the Bottom of the View Range to -6”).

"...please reply with a stripped down version ( < 10mb) of the file from the screenshot."

 

Maybe I have been away from this forum too long. I attached a 5.24 MB file and the following message says it's too big.

 

"Please correct the highlighted errors and try again. The attachment is too large. The maximum file size is: 5,242,880 bytes."

 

Thanks,

Arthur

Here is a zip file of the Revit project. It should open to the subject view.

Thanks,

Thanks. Works for me. I've always been a bit confused on view depth and view range.
