    Equipment not showing in RCP

    I have a HVAC Floor Plan showing vent, air terminals, ductworks etc. really i would like to use a RCP, only thing is everything is showing ok in my RCP Except the vent unit, it just wont show up, i have checked VG make sure it is switched on, i have placed this family as mechanical equipment.
    i dont understand why everything else is showing ok, except all my vent units, i have looked at view range, tried all settings, nothing works
    does anyone have any ideas?

    can u put a snap shot of section & the view range of the ceiling plan. I think maybe ur cut plan may be above the equipment.

    if u place the snap shot, we can check for some other problems.

        I would suggest that you use the RCP for coordination only. RCPs on sheets are usually only used for ceiling mounted devices. Hidden lines will be shown on items above others. The reverse of what a floor plan would show.

        Are you planning on putting this on a sheet?

          Showing Ceiling Grid in Floor Plan

          Hi
          i am a bit confused with revit, when doing HVAC and Lighting Plans if to use a floor plan or RCP
          I Found RCP have restrictions, so what i really want is a floor plan that i can show a ceiling grid so i can show where my air terminals, light fittings are placed. what is best method?
          only thing i have managed to do is to place my floor plan on a sheet, and then place on top the RCP on top, this seems to work
          but is this the right way to do it? i cant seem to find the answer?
          any help be much appreciated.

            From what I've heard, that is the only way to do it.

              Yeah, I've had to explain this to people in my office who say things like "Can't you just thaw the ceiling layer?" Sigh.

              A big part of learning to use Revit is being comfortable with jumping back and forth between different views, IMO.
