    Long section/long profiles section

    Good morning all, i am working on site storm drain development that needs long profiles, AFAIK civil 3d can generate profile easily wich i dont have, i am coriuos is there anyway to do it in revit??or app exchange.

    i attch an example for this profile

    thanks for your help guys

    hmm. I guess no one does this then.
    I would suggest making a section view for each straight piece of pipe and then put them together on a sheet.
    Make one section then copy, rotate parralel to the next pipe, rather than make a new section each time, to get consistent view height and stuff.

    Why wouldn't a long section cut handle this? There is no vanishing point in a section view, so in theory, despite the change in the X,Y direction, a long section cut would provide a view showing the entire run of pipe and it's changes in elevation. What you would not receive is the elevation markers, however that could be accomplished with levels, if one so desired to add that many additional levels to their project and manage their visibility in other views.

    I can see myself being asked to do this some day in Revit, despite our civil department and their use of Civil3D. My work is "supposed" to stop 5' outside of the building.

    This grid that appears on your image... Not sure I recognize the value or intent of it though. Maybe critical spot elevation tags instead?

    Alright, no straightforward tool, just OOTB stuff.

    Probably the only reason I would do something like this, is to find out what my FF elevation would be before the Civil guys got back to me. But I would not use Revit for anything civil production related, not in the methodology I am used to from 6 years working with LDD & Civil Desktop. I could probably figure it out, but it would be clunky...

    The grid usually has elevations to the side and the lower is the distance. But a profile section goes off of the centerline of the pipe run, so that is why the Letter callouts are further apart than the plan view. Since Revit is just one long section cut it won't work if your pipe runs are staggered like above.

    If you really want to do this in Revit....you would have to have a section for each pipe length....then stitch each section cut when you place it on the sheet. There was a post recently about doing something similar with curtain walls. (But I can't find it...)

    profile and section is slightly different, i dont want broke the drawing code buddy .

    "My work is "supposed" to stop 5' outside of the building" this statement should be mine too , thanks for your test anyway

    i did import surface data in revit also, so i can see the FF/FG and EG by section.
    last time i try export in cad, and do the rest with the cad, but no luck because the pipe converted as 3d polymesh and i wish it can be just 3d polyline so i can run lisp on it.
