I am trying to essentially get a floor plan combined with a reflected ceiling plan on a single viewport & sheet. My current solution is to have a floor plan view with the floor plan elements that I want to see, and a reflected ceiling plan that shows just the ceiling grid, and possibly duct & mechanical equipment. This is working just fine. In Revit, I see objects the way I wish to see them.

 

However, once I print, my output isn't what I see on the screen. It's almost like the reflected ceiling plan is "hiding" floor plan elements.

 

I received this tip from someone else, so I know other people are doing it. What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks in advance,

Shawn

Try changing your view with the ceiling grids to wireframe.

Something else worth mentioning:

 

I'm using 2014 at the moment.

 

Also, the plotted plan doesn't hide EVERYTHING. It's appearing to hide conduit and devices. The printed plan is still displaying device tags for the power devices.

That did the trick. I had a feeling it was something easy. Thanks!
