    Filled region in 3d view

    Is there any way that one can add a filled region to a 3d view?
    In the sample attached I need to add the area (retail, arcade, etc) to the section. I really would want to do this without having to first turn the view into a jpeg, then photoshop over it.

    Sorry but the answer is no. At least not natively. The section box cut face of 3D geometry is pretty much useless in Revit in terms of being a thing you can calculate anything from. You could use VG to alter the cut pattern but that would apply to all cut faces of the same type. You could hack it though with overlayed views. Or photoshop.

      not with native revit except if you insert a pdf or dwg "in all views" it will show in your 3D view also that might be an option, also take a look at revizto it allows you to associate other views and they will call up in your 3D it might give you what you need.

      Whats the objective of these linked filled régions? If I can see what you are trying to produce exactly I might have a workaround for you.

          You can superimpose a view that does allow filled region and draw it there

            You could model a wafer-thin element of some kind, on a non-primary design option...

              pass it through autocad (ie link the pdf into autocad) then link your cad drawing into revit.

              Theres also this option in revit

                  well im not sure why you would need filled regions in a 3D view, handle it with hatch patterns and filters would be a better option

                  If you are trying to show the room spaces in color in 3D views there are better workarounds just dépends what he is trying to achieve, but yes passing a pdf into autocad is a pain, but I've done the same with excel spreadsheets, this way it keeps a "live" update as the dwg updates the excel spreadsheet like an XREF and then revit does similar with the link. It works, but its double handling

                    If unused elsewhere: create a simple mass and have it shown?
