Have you ever tried to place a spot slope dimension on ramp in Revit?
You cannot place it on ramps because of some reasons, then how could it be achieved in Revit?
Place a spot slope on a sloped floor first, and move or copy/paste it to a ramp. Then, the slope will show up correctly.
Use a sloped floor instead of a ramp.
In Revit, you can choose which revisions need to be showed up on each sheet using “Revisions on Sheet” on the properties. However, sometimes some revisions are greyed out, so you cannot uncheck those revisions on the sheet. This is happening because revision clouds of those revisions are already placed on the sheet, so you have to remove or hide those revision clouds on the sheet not to show on the revision schedule.
If you cannot find revision clouds on the sheet, you have to go to View tab > Sheet Composition panel and click on Sheet Issue/Revisions icon.
On the popup, change the Show field to “Cloud and Tag” and click “OK”. Then, those clouds will be visible on the sheet.
Once you delete or hide the revision clouds on the sheet, the revision will be gone from the revision schedule.
Visibility/Graphics was introduced in the December issue of CAD & Graphics. Visibility/Graphics is a very powerful function to control graphics of each view in Revit.
Typically most users just use a category-based filter in Revit, but sometimes a selection-based filter is very useful if there is no rule to be applied.
Selection-Based filter allows to select elements manually and save the selection as a filter. Follow the instructions below to create a selection-based filter.
1. Select Elements which needs to be filtered in a view.
2. Go to Manage tab > Selection panel, and click on “Save” icon to create a selection-based filter.
3. Type a filter name, and click “OK”.
4. To edit an existing filter, go to Manage tab > Selection panel, and click on “Edit” icon.
5. Select a filter to be modified, and click on “Edit” button.
6. You can add or remove elements from a selection-based filter like a group.
3 Lacing options of Dynamo
Shortest – This option is to connect inputs one-on-one until one of the lists run out.
Longest – This option is to keep connecting inputs, reusing elements, until all data run out.
Cross Product – This options is to make all possible connection between data.
The dynamo workflow allows to select sheets using “Issue Event” & “Sheet Discipline” parameter and make PDFs into the specific folder, then rename those using a naming rule assigned in workflow.
I started to publish a article serially in a monthly Korean AEC magazine titled “CAD & Graphics”, and the overall topic is “How to create a beautiful drawings using Revit graphic functions”. First article for this month is about general introduction of each graphic functions in Revit.
