    beam question

    is there a way to do the beams for the first floor and then have the same ones for the 5 floors above.
    also iv tried doing this for each floor but the beams dont appear in plan but are visible in 3d. iv looked at visibility settings and plan view edit and everything is checked but still no beams showing up?

    Did you use method of copy to clipboard the modify tab in level1 , and then paste to current view in the next floor level2 ?

        Hello Joe,

        With Beams the odds are they are modelled with their tops at offset 0 to the level. Most default Plan Views in Revit have a View depth of 0, so indeed the Beams are just to low for the active view to pick up.

        Go to the properties of the view and look for the View Range, press the edit button and set the Bottom Plane and the View Depth to a negative number (telling Revit to look a little deeper than the blue level line).

        Might not be the case, but this one often crops up.

        Bjorn.

          This is exactly the case. RAC is not set up to show beams in floor plan views thus the view depth must be modified to go below the bottom of the beams to see them.
