    View Range Driving Me Bonkers

    We are using Revit 2017. I think I understand view range and how it works. However, I have come across something I cannot figure out. We have a structural model linked into ours. The floor plan shows the steel brace frames going into the two Lab Support rooms. The reality is that the end points of those brace frames occur at about 14' AFF yet they appear to be encroaching into the rooms. You can see how the view range is set up. I cannot for the life of me figure out why this appears like this.

    Any help?:banghead:

    Is the structural model using the same levels?

      They are and everything lines up vertically.

        Try making all the range/cut numbers the same...
        first try : 0'-0'
        second try: 4'-0"
        third try: 7'-0"
        See if the structural representation changes as you switch between them.

          I have played with everything in the view range. I have changed every setting I can think of. Nothing is having any impact on the structural.

            I contacted the structural engineer. Turns out that this is an issue with his framing member parameter. All fixed.

              There is a default setting in the structural framing members that shows them pre-cut in plans. I've been told that they usually need this for their plans to show correct because the typical structural cut plane is right above the floor, but there are usually other ways they can make that work.

                Structural members have a setting in the family that is called "Show family pre-cut in plan view" and that can sometimes negatively affect the representation.

                  Was your "fix" made by changing the setting that determines how the stick symbol is controlled? The Stick Symbol line can either be controlled by the family or by the project. If by the project, Revit will automatically add a stick symbol based off the "Structural Usage".

                    No. The problem was the setting within the family described by Chris and jmk above.
