    connect model lines (polylines)

    Hi,
    how can I connect several line segments to 1 single line?
    e.g. I want to connect an arc with a line to one single line to draw a curved beam, but I have no idea how? I think I need a kind of curved polyline...??

    I'm not quite following. Could you post an example of what you're trying to accomplish? Revit doesn't have a Join command. But if you want to be able to select a chain of lines, place the cursor above one segment and hit tab, it'll highlight the entire chain of lines to select.

      Draw a detail line. Check length. Draw series of detail lines and keep adding the individual length. You get the total length.
      Well, this is how I do it.

        Revit doesn't do polylines like AutoCAD does. You have to draw the individual segments, then mouse over any segment and hit Tab to cycle through selecting the individual segment and selecting all connected segments.

          Line Based Generic Model, with a Shared Parameters LENGTH = Length. Make one quick schedule, and draw them just like you would a polyline.
