    View Range Mystery

    Revit 2018

    I have been using Revit since 2005 and I still am occasionally perplexed by the view range (and other things too) but this time I'm sure it's me.

    So I created a roof framing plan here and the view range is just how I want it and then I see the footings are showing up.

    I have since looked at the VG and saw that I had foundations checked to show up, and when I unchecked that box they disappeared, but these footings are WAY outside the view range. My high roof level (HR) is at 44'-6 1/2" and the footings are at 0'-0".

    Do you have a view underlay turned on?

    Some disciplines break the rules when it comes to visibility I believe.

    I'm not sure what Engineer wants to show concrete footings on a roof plan.

    It's shocking how I can spend an hour or more trying to get something to show up that should, and then WHAM, here's footings on the roof plan by default.

    I'm sure there are lots of things I don't know about Revit is all.

    I'd show them on a floor framing plan..

    Try changing your view depth to just below the roof framing perhaps.

    Yes I show foundations on the foundation plan usually.

    I changed view depth to 5'-0" below the reference level, which is as close as I could get it to still allow all framing to show up. Still footings showing up unless I turn them off.

    Is there a way to look at the view range in section? You know, to actually see the view range? Seems like that would be nice.

    I recall that someone posted that on the Revit Idea Station at the Autodesk Forums....

    This is just a thought...do you have a level for "Top of Footing"? Try adding one if you don't. I wonder if that is why some structural folk I know added one there....it doesn't need to be a plan view, just a level.

    I have a level for the foundation, but the wall footings are placed by hitting FT and then picking walls. This may be why they show up. Revit thinks they are a part of the wall.

    The only footings that show up are the ones for the walls. The pad footings under the columns don't show up. So maybe it thinks that the footing is a part of the wall, so it shows it. Although the columns show up on the roof. I tried removing all roof elevations references from the walls to no avail.

    Try changing the view discipline from Coordination to Architectural

    Can you post an elevation showing how your levels relate to the roof structure?
