I have a model that was started a few months back and the loor levels were never changed from the default (i.e. Level 1 = 0"). Is there a way to move the entire model up so Level 1 = 100'-0"?
I think the best way to do is moving the whole model in one action to do this follow the next points: 1- Open an "elevation view" (north, east or any of that, even a section) 2- Go to "Manage" 3- at the "Project Location" on manage click on "Position" tab and choose "Relocate Project" 4- Now click on any place and move (like when you move an object) to the desired position i.e 100' in the Z direction of the project. 5- You will not notice any change, to get this you need to edith your "level family" and change the elevation base to "shared" this will change you current 0' 0" to 100' 0" 6- Do this also for your "spot elevations" select one spot elevation and click edit type, then go to "elevation origin" and change from project to "shared" this will update all your spot elevations since they're a family. Don't forget to create a backup, just in case... Hope this helps. Fredy
I'm already at 390mb and I need to know how to reduce my file size, any suggestions?
I once came across a project file that was 330 Mb (2-Story 15,000 s.f. Public Library Renovation with a 12,000 s.f. addition). As I investigated it, there was a simple profile family being used in a fascia that had a .tif file linked in. Removing the .tif file and re-loading the family brought the project down to 47 Mb! I concur with all previous suggestions. CAD links and in-place families are typical culprits of excessive file size.
Does anyone have a Revit family for arrows that adjust to any scale. I want to use it to show bar the ranges for reinforcement detailing as a 2D detail. Currently I have done a family but I can't get the family to scale.
What Revit add-ins are people using and how much time do they save you?
I'm getting better at Revit but what are some good time saving shortcuts?
I apologize on behalf of my previous (supposed) reply - I think I was hacked. I always import my custom Keyboard Shortcuts file and continue to revise and refine them to accommodate the latest features. I don't use numbers or symbols as that post suggests. Sorry.
Pretty simple I'd like to make one of my walls invisible, is it possible to do this in Revit?
there are different ways of achieving this. It all depends on what is the purpose of it: You can "hide" a wall or any other element by view. Just select it, right-click, choose "hide in view", then element. You can also demolish the element, or move it to a Phase, or even make it part of a design option. Again, it all depends on what's the purpose of hiding it. Hope this helps.
