Add "Displace Elements" functionality to Plan View objects.

Add "Displace Elements" functionality to Plan View objects.

Often times, especially when modeling Piping Systems, model objects are stacked and fastened to a wall - similar to this elevation example...

What obviously happens in a schematic or other Plan View is an unclear depiction of what is occurring.

When showing piping in schematic plan view under this type of condition, a standard practice is to show such beside each other for clarity,

but are then forced to compromise model accuracy to accommodate such...

Having the ability to use the "Displace Elements" tool in a Plan View would allow clarity, like that above, while maintaining model accuracy elsewhere, like that below.

Other disciplines may benefit from such functionality as well.

Displace elements would be useful in all views, especially when detailing. W typically model wall & roof panels, but on our installation details, we need to show the order in which flashings and sealants are installed. In our AutoCAD details we just space these components our slightly, in Revit however, we need to start replacing modeled elements with with detail component equivalents to achieve this, which defeats the purpose of having the modeled elements show in a view.

Nice! This should help many until the day we can deliver 3D Models as construction deliverables. 😉
