    Is there a way to change object's visibility based on view?

    Hi,
    I created a kitchen cabinet and I want to draw shelving behind cabinet doors as hidden symbolic lines. But I want those lines to be visible only in internal elevations (1:50) and not in sections etc.

    As it stands, I think Revit can't do view specific object visibility parameters. I'd love one of you gurus to prove me wrong
    Even a workaround would be great.

    Hi Milos,

    The family visibility graphics in the family editor will give you some control, but not everything you are after.

    You can control the visibility of any object within a family by:

    Plan
    Elevation
    Section
    RCP

    and also by

    Detail Level - coarse - medium - fine.

    Happy to be proved wrong, but I do not think you can control an element within a family by the scale of the view it is placed in.

      You should be able to do this with a view template.
      In the family, create a new sub category, something like Cupboard shelves.
      Draw the lines in you cupboard family on the new sub category.
      Then in the project, create a view template for the views you don't want to see the lines in and turn them off in the VG category.
      Apply this view template to any views you don't want to see the lines in.

        I would go with Ian solution first and see if that works the way you would like before going to view templates. Going through the family and just selecting that you do not want elements visible in section will make this work all the time automatically rather than having to apply a view template every time.

          I think either way will work.
          It will take 3 seconds to apply the view template. Select all of the views in the project browser and apply the template in one hit.

            Besides, the view templates will also give you the ability to do show them if you want to. Telling the line in family that it's not visible in section turns it off in ANY and ALL sections... Even the more detailed ones.
