    Section on radius.

    I found this question by another forum.

    How to make a section (or elevation) along the radial grid?
    I think this is impossible, but there may be some clever or workaround...

    Sorry, but that isn't possible (would be cool though)

      Next step: arrange views in a sheet ;-)

        I also have a current project with a radiused grid (I'm in RST2011)
        The question about this came up yesterday afternoon and I didn't have an answer.
        But, after a night of rest, and seeing your question, I tried to do the following...

        Create a Reference Plane:
        1. begin at SC (Snap Center) of your radiused grid line.
        2. end the RP beyond the place where you want to cut your section.

        Create your Section View:
        1. Create it along your Reference Plane.

        Check your section. My Radiused gridline has shown up!
        Dimensioning, however, is another problem. Looks like you'll have to put "dummy" detail lines in and dimension from there. :banghead:

            Personally I´d be tempted to cheat like a crazy, and create a straight instance of the wall (in another phase or workset), and use that for the elevations... not very Revit/Bim, but fast and easy...

              I would be tempted to make the elevation just the way it is. Do you want dimensions? Too bad. Do you want it to look like a straight wall in Elevation? Don't design a curved wall...

                  I 100% agree. Its NOT straight, and you cant put straight dimensions on it. It SHOULD be dimensioned with radiuses, arc lengths, and angles. I flat out refuse to give contractors orthagonal dimensions for non-orthagonal things. Lay it out the way it was intended, so you dont screw it up.

                  For what its worth, the Orienting of elevations to reference planes is a great "Revit" trick, but architecturally/structurally i cant see how any dimensions on it are valuable, including the openings.

                    Interesting that today with our parametric smart software we worry about something like a "section on radius" to describe a room in the shape of a circle...

                    ...and more than one hundred years before Christ, the Romans designed the beautiful Pantheon, drawing it on papyrus, without any sections on radius, and managed to build an awesome space, circular in plan, and semi spherical in section.
