    want different grid for different levels!

    In Revit Structure, how can you make different grids for different levels? Apparently, when you make a grid for a level, it automatically copies to other levels as well, and when you apply changes to a particular grid at level 1, the same change applies to the grid at level 2! Any ideas how to fix this?

    Grids have a 3D extent to them - they are not just 2D lines. If you look at your section / elevation you can drag the grid head after unlocking it (if needed) to adjust the 3D extents.

      In addition to cellophane's answer.
      When you select the grid you will see "3D" show up at both ends. Picking that will change it from 3D (every level) to 2D (current level). Now you can drag the ends however you like without affecting the other levels. You will have to use the "Hide in View" "Element" option to have a certain grid not show up on a certain level.

        Grids will only show in plan views where the actual planar-surface (what a grid really is) is being cut, so if a grid vertically spans levels 1 to 2 then it won't show up (because it doesn't exist) at level 03 and above (or below level 01) for example. NOTE: Grids will show in sections and elevations if they are cut OR are within the view's far clip...)

        Setting the 3D extents is the manipulation you'll want to do and use both a plan and sections (or elevations) to get them set for both their horizontal & vertical 3D extents.

          You could create additional gridline types under edit type, then use filters to switch on/off per view.
          I have used this for a separate mezzanine sub grid which was different from the main building grids.

            There is another issue about what you're trying to do, and the suggestions provided: a *grid* had a unique name. So if you make grid *A* on level 1, even if you use a different grid type on level 2, it cannot be named *A* as it already exists.

            It's not a bad thing, either. Gridlines really ought to be global, if they are in the same plane. I wouldn't even recommend filtering by grid type, so much as putting data in the grids about what they are.

            Filtering by type assumes the right type is always used in the right circumstance, which is more management for little gain.
