    new construction elevations showing in demo plan

    I am pretty sure I've racked my brain and google searching pretty fully on this one before coming here to ask... but for whatever reason, interior elevation call outs for New Construction are showing up in demolition plans. Unless I just hadn't noticed before, I don't believe this was happening with them until today.

    • Demo plan's phase is New Construction and the Phase Filter is "Show Previous + Demo".
    • Elevations phases are set to New Construction and the Phase Filter is "Show Previous + New" (but they still appear in the demo plans when changing their Phase Filter to "Show Complete")
    • New Construction is set to "Not Displayed" in the "Show Previous + Demo" Phase Filter


    What am I missing? :crazy: I'd prefer to understand the cause rather than just turning elevations off in the demo view template...

    Thanks in advance for any ideas

    I believe the reason would be because Revit considers Demolition a part of the current phase (New Construction). Revit can only access past phases thru the "Existing" phase filter (no access to "Completed Demo", for example), and can't access future phases at all (no "Future Demo"). To show Demo, you must "look backwards" from the current phase.

    So that ends up meaning that you're saying "the views for this phase are showing up in a view set to this phase", which is expected behavior. I typically have view filters set up for each of my elevation and section view "types" (Interior wall elevation, Ext Wall Section, Enlarged RR Elev, Demo Ext Elevation, etc), and place the appropriate ones in the view template. This method (name the view types, create filters, add to views) has become standard workflow for me.

      You're right, thank you - I'd convinced myself this morning that phase filters would certainly filter out views that didn't correspond with the same phase filter and thought it was some sort of bug, haha. I'm not sure how I'd forgotten having used filters for elevations in demo view for this reason.
