    Creating Section causes Regens

    Does anyone know why revit regen's like crazy when cutting a section? I think its because of all the models I have linked it. But it shouldn't be drawing the section while I'm just trying to place it.

    try Close Hidden Windows first... Revit will calculate the placement off the section in all open views. This can really slow you down.
    Besides that: I don't see how it's possible to place a view without the need to calculate what's in it...

      I would think once its placed, then it would calculate. Not while you are just starting the tag.

        I'm not quite following you... What do you mean? It starts regenerating after you place the first end?
        That generally means for me that I've reached the end of my internal memory and Revit is slowing down in all aspects.

        What you could try is copying existing sections in stead of creating a new one. I find this to be less big of a deal for Revit. Only trick is that you have to have at least one section with the same bearing as the new one...

          If I copy a section or mirror, I get NO regen. But when I place a new one, as soon as I pick the starting point revit starts to think. It can take a few seconds before it shows the section label, it maybe a graphics issue, trying to draw somehting undefined.

            That sounds correct indeed. In my opinion a copy or mirror has a different follow-up, namely changing the view extension. This requires a lot less calculation than setting up a new view (likewise, a copy of a plan view needs less time than creating a new floor plan).
