    Question on View Range

    I have a multi story and I'd like to setup a view template to cover all the plan views. I set my view range to: top = level above, offset 6"; bottom = associated level.

    My question is on the top floor, there is no level above. Does Revit know what I want or do I need a separate view template for the top floor?

    Have you actually tried it? What result are you getting now?

    i usually set top to a specified distance rather than level above to avoid stuff (like bulkheads) getting in the way

      I may have been overthinking. I'm still building the template, so I haven't fully trialed this.

      My new thought is the top floor wouldn't have a level above, so at that point I'd think it would be unlimited.

        I'm curious why you've used a 6" offset beyond the Level Above?

        When there is no level above then there is no practical difference between Level Above and Unlimited except that there is an offset value available to the Level Above setting. This means you can still restrict the Primary Range above your current level via the Offset value...but then your model probably doesn't contain anything relevant very far above the last level anyway. Unless something well above the model also crosses through the view's cut plane it won't be visible ordinarily anyway.

          I usually use a level for roof as well...just interested in how Revit reacts to forced conditions that don't exist.

            Yes, it is pretty common to do so. The View Range is usually adjusted to move the cut plane well above the roof so it creates a view that looks like a roof plan should. More often than not the level is actually marking the Top Plate elevation for wood framed structure or Top of Steel for a wood/steel framed flat roof.

              Still working on my view templates. Would I be working too hard if I set a view template for each floor?

              I'm looking at 4th floor deck penetrations. In order to get the correct walls to show up, I need the arch link to be set to Level 4. This kills all my work of trying to have a single view-template.

              Sheet types: Plan Views, Deck Inserts, Deck Penetrations. Math. 4 floors x 3 Sheet Types = 12 view templates?
