    Grides on an angle

    Revit Forum Community,

    Why wont my grids show up? I have a building on an angle, will this effect why I cant see it? All grids are being pulled through the entire building. They even show up in other elevation. What else could be an explanation?

    If your grids aren't perpendicular to your view then they won't show up (they can't). You have to make sure to cut the section or elevation so it's perpendicular to your grid lines if you want them shown.

      Is there any solution to it? Is there a work around?

        I think the question is if you want to show them. Obviously any relation between the grid lines and the building components will be different if you cut the section in another place. Do you have a screenshot of the plan with grids? It's a little easier to see what's going on that way.

            Your angled grids should never show up in non-perpendicular sections. Nobody will know exactly where your section was cut, so dimensions off of those non-perpendicular grids will be suspect. Even if you could guarantee they were perfectly dimensioned, I doubt you'd like the resultant dimensional fractions, which would not be useful for anyone. The overall layout plan will be what is used initially, and by the time anyone is framing partitions, those sections won't be useful anyhow.

              So how do I get them to show?

                You dont.

                Grids A-E and grids F and higher, should never be shown on the same elevation or Section View, as showing them together dimensionally wouldnt make any sense at all.

                If the section or elevation is showing A-E, its not showing F and higher. If its showing F and higher (and its oriented differently), its not showing A-E.

                  You don't. You might want them to show but chances are that just about anyone else would be puzzled if they saw a depiction of a non-perpendicular grid line in a section. You only show perpendicular grid lines.

                    Ask yourself who would benefit and how? You'll find that nobody will benefit. If I was a betting man, I would bet that a PM or Designer has told you they want to see them on the section. Those folks haven't thought beyond the end of their "I want" and they don't like being told "no."
