    Grids, views and scope boxes

    This is what I am trying to accomplish:

    Overall plans, elevations, building sections - grid center segment set to none.
    Block plans, enlarged plans - grid center segment set to continuous.

    I am aware of the power of scope boxes, however, applying a grid to a scope box for one view is not appropriate for another that is not associated with that scope box.
    It would seem that I am back to manually dragging a 2d grid per view rather than using the power of the software. I know the answer is staring me in the face,...anyone?

    Just a quick reply - other than (mis)using a design option, you'd have to fall back on manually dragging a 2D grid per view. Not elegant, but it'll do in a pinch.

    EDIT: If you do drag the 2D grid, you can propagate extents.

      As soon as a view's crop boundary is enabled Propagate Extents stops working for the affected elements...sorry.

        If you add the grids to the scope box they don't... Perhaps I'm missing something? :crazy:

        As is common with Revit, it seems like a small question begets a big answer, with possible holes in that answer. I'm going to outline the scenario I used, which is two sets of grids, the continuous and non-continuous in differing design options within a common set. The major set back to this method is the numbering of the grids, you'll have to use a custom parameter.

        1. I create REF PLANES, putting these in their own workset, to act as my construction geometry. It will make sure the two differing sets of grids have a common reference as the design progress and things get shifted.
        2. Create a Design Option Set for the Grids. Then two Design Options, one for continuous and the other for non-continuous grids.
        3. Create Scope Box
        4. Create Grids in their respective options.
        5. Assign Views and Grids to scope box, could be one or the other as well depending on how you intend to use.

        If I've got your intent right, this should work..
