    Yeah there's grids, but there's linked models that go beyond where my stuff is and I think the section goes to the full extents of those linked models. I'll try the scope box thing.
  2. Control Crop / Extents of Working Sections ahead of time

    When I cut a section in the model and open it, the section shows me everything from 50 feet beneath the earth's crust to the stratosphere. It's always done this, but on the project I am on now, it...

    I agree completely. But after reading a few things about 90 causing problems and seeing this fix reiterated a few times as well, I am going with it.

    I have a dozen or so formulas that have tan(Edge Angle Left), and when it's 90, it doesn't work.

    The weird part is that if I make the angle default to 90, it gives me this. (see image) But if I put 90 in the project, it just gives it a little off. I would think it would crash the family.

    My question is this: Does Revit ignore all other formulas if the angle is 90???

    Yeah, the thing is that there are many lines that we detail in other views. these would severely complicate this view. Do I hide the 3D geometry in the family or in the project?

    There are lots of lines in the family (edges, chamfers, etc.) that I do not want to show up at all in that sheet view. How do I set it so they don't show up?
