    Sloped Grid in Elevation

    Revit Faithful

    RA 2011

    Is there a way top set up a grid line to slope in elevation? We have an exterior skin that cant slope at 7 degrees, and in elevation we would like some column lines to slope as well.

    I am just about to do it "with drafting lines and such". Is there a better way?


    I've not seen sloped grids before in elevation, but instead a grid for the base plate and another grid for the top plate. Not sure how other Struct Eng do this but this is the only way I've seen it done.

    I would suggest maybe using Reference Planes to achieve this.

    Just got back from visiting NYC. Nice city you guys have there

      Refplanes is the way to go... But in 2011 there's also the possibility of a Slanted Column... Which is probably exactly what you need.

        A slanted grid in elevation would be a little odd since you would never be able to see it (live) in plan. So you would never see the grid untill you cut a section or elevation perpendicular to the grid.
