Split Faces of Structural Elements like Framing & Columns

Split Faces of Structural Elements like Framing & Columns

So the current version of Revit doesn't allow us to paint a small portion of the surface of Framing & Columns It will be really handy if we could split faces of column & Framing as well as other structural elements for formwork calculation.

Not applicable

Split face on architectural column and structural column!


I voted for this because it makes sense. Depending on how you model, a column may run through various levels so the painted finishes specification could vary along it's length. Similar for beams that cross different compartments.


Probably this needs to be a bit more high level than spitting faces i.e. for an automated manufacturing process you perhaps would like to extract from the BIM model curve parameters along a member where the applied finishes varied (stop/starts).
