    [Revit Architecture] - 2D/3D Property Lines

    Applies to: - Revit Architecture

    New Feature / Problem:
    At present property lines are sketched, or placed to points, in plan, purely as a 2D plan-based entity.

    Their extents are not accessble in elevation or section views.

    It would be nice if they did (show) OOTB.

    Why do you need this Feature / Why is it a Problem:
    To show boundary definitions in elevations & sections requires workarounds, of which a number are documented.

    This secondary exercise to the intial boundary sketch/placement doubles the number of edits, creating risk, and reducing productivity.

    The property line element acquires the same 2D/3D duality that grids & reference planes have (with one difference - they needn't be perpindicular to view to appear when cut) - when drawn, they the automatically appear in the vertical.

    Immediate , one-edit-does-all method.

    Consolidates different ways of working across practices.

    Attachment comments:

    wouldn't those boundaries in vertical views taper ever so slightly?
    never used it, probably never will. strange to think how we all use revit differently. painful to imagine being a developer at autodesk being pulled every which way.
    There must be a better way...
