    Floors with different levels

    Just wondering what others are doing in this situation ie mezzanine or floors with steps ups /downs. Not sure on correct presentation methods, view range becomes a head@#%$... what's the best practice here? Cheers.

    Well, if it stays under the default View Range Cut Plane (1200mm in my plan views) it will be modelled as a reference to the level my view is in. So a floor on Level 1 with two 200mm steppings will have all those steppings and the heightened floor modelled in relation to Level 1. If it's 6+ steps, the heightened floor will be on a separate level.

    That might not be correct building-wise but saves me a lot of grief dealing with plan regions and stuff.

    option available on:
    [x] Revit Architecture [X] Revit MEP [X] Revit Structure

    For create just one or more area (zone) with different "view range" on the same main view :

    1) Show the main view plan and make correct View Range as you want (the main view range of view).
    2) Ribbon revit --> View --> Plan Views, select Plan Region. Place zone with line tools on your plan view, Valid (green arrow)
    3) on the properties (or ribbon revit [Modify | Plan Region] ) select: View Range. Modify as you want (its the view range only for the area as you draw)
    4) make another plan region if you want (but no overlapping region )
    5) done..
    Modify line region area type :
    Ribbon Revit --> Manage --> Object Styles -- > Annotation Object --> Plan Region --> change line Weight, line Color, line Pattern

    Hide, unhide line region area:
    [V]+[G] --> Annotation Catégories --> Plan region --> Uncheck for hide line , check for visible line area.
    If area line is hide, go (in your main view) Reveal Hidden Element (icon: electric bulb, near eyeglass) for see hidden line.

    Create our own levels and views specific to just those areas (Maybe have the Architect place new levels for coordination alert monitoring)
    Force the view to see a view from a linked model.
    Trying to get the link to look correct and our own modeled elements to show what is in that levels space...uhhh. I know what you're saying. In addition to this issue are spaces. I have issues with spaces 100% of the time with interstitial levels and mezzanines. I think it has to do with HOW the Architect setup his levels and rooms.
    Too bad plan regions don't work for MEP.
