Using floor plan for level above as underlay

Recommended Posts

Siberian

For a specific view I would like to use the imported floor plan for the level above as an underlay, but not including all the objects that reside on that level. Sounds like a simple enough task, but I can't think of a way. Adjusting the view range doesn't seem like a good way to go. Any ideas?

Have you tried setting the RVT link V/G settings to use "Linked view" and turn off the categories that you don't want to see?

That would work if it was a RVT link, but it's a DWG import. I was just referring to my own objects on that level.

You imported the floor plan (as opposed to linking it)?

No, it is linked. Sorry for not being clear on that. But when linking it you associate it with a certain floor - but for this particular view I would like to use it for the floor below as well.

I'm having trouble figuring out what you have.

 

Why can't you link the desired floor plan into the view and have it show in that view only?

Say I have level 1 and level 2. I originally linked the level 2 floor plan (dwg) to my level 2 - as is the normal practice - and use it there for several views. But now I have a situation where I would like that same floor plan as my background also for level 1, but I can't find any way of using the V/G settings to accomplish that.

Same question.

 

Why can't you just link the desired level to a single view instead of to a level?

Stacked Views on your Sheet is one way. Quick 'n dirty, not ideal but honestly works the best. 

 

Another way depends on how you set up your DWG Links to begin with. Sometimes we have a bare Revit model with all DWG Links imported into the bare model to act as a retainer of DWG Links, then link this Revit model into our project. This gives you more control overall but can add to setup time.
