    Tagging Bottom of Finish Floor from Revit Link (Spot Elevations)

    Hi,

    For my current project, I need to add spot elevations to denote the finish floor level, as well as the structural slab level. Typically, I will have the floor finish and the structural slab as two separate elements - from there, I can use a spot elevation that indicates both the top and bottom of the finish floor to get both the finish and structural floor levels (the bottom of the finish floor is the same as the top of the structural floor).

    In my current predicament, these two floors are in a separate file which is linked into my file with annotations. When I try to use the spot elevation tool on the linked file, it takes the top of the finish floor and the bottom of the structural floor which is a separate element. Example: 50mm finish (+100.50) on a 300mm structural slab (+100.00). The value it will give me is +100.50 for the finish, the but the bottom will be +99.70 instead of +100.00 as it is recognizing the two elements as one.

    Does anyone have any workarounds to this?

    Thanks!

    Darryl,

    As a test, if you temporarily turned off the structural slab and then added the spot elevation will it take just the finish floor?

    Hi Darryl,

    keep all the structural elements in one file. For example, if you have your structural slab in one file then make sure your finish floor is also on the same along with retaining walls, foundations and column elements. Try doing this . You should be able to get the spot elevation - both top & bottom elevation right.

    Yes, as Jj Mac said, just tap to chose the below slab then hide it, the spot elevation will automatically show the bottom of the above slab.

    What hat happens if you temp hide (tab select) the FF in the linked model, can you then SE the top of the slab?
    I'm guessing the floors aren't joined right?

    I'm pretty sure that hiding a floor will also hide the SE of that floor.

    Still having this issue in Revit 2019. Had to hide element in view the structural slab below, in order for spot elevation to show correct bottom of finish floor. Ridiculous.
