    Generate plan from reference plane

    Hi,

    I am designing a scaffold that is on a slope. I've used a reference plane to associate all the elements and families to the correct inclement. I would like to create a plan view from the reference plane so that I can easily edit families I have placed in this reference plane.

    Is this possible?

    nope, but you can adjust your view range accordingly.

    welcome to the forum :beer:

    edit, oh I've just seen you've put your reference plane on a slope. In elevation you should be able to place a section at the same slope...although section views don't have the same features such as cut plane, like plan views do.

      Thank you :beer:

      Thought it wouldn't be possible but worth a try. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!

        what if you even cannot draw ref plane? for instance, frame box rotated in all 3 directions, i can only managed to use 3D view oriented to (working) plane plus section box, perhpas i missed something?

          Well that's a rhetorical question. Except you can't draw reference planes in a 3D view...although I'm sure you could get there eventually.

            You can use the work plane viewer when editing a form in the family editor. That gives you what you are after making it easier to edit the form, but perhaps not in the context you are attempting, so i am not sure it is of much help.

              I tried again but in vein, see attached RVT, again I may miss something simple!?

              edit: I need "normal" 2D view like plan/section/elevation instead of 3D view pretend to be the one, due to obvious reason i.e. view range, object style, VG, etc

                Can you rotate linked models in a vertical plane? You could link your model into another empty project, rotate so the ref plane is 'flat' then make floor plans. Although this would only be for making views/sheets not for working in..

                Probably is easier to set you r working plane in 3D.. (You can do a suprising amount in 3D if you set the plane correctly).

                  yes, I can make work plane based on element face, and orient to that plane, but that's it, I cannot create ref plane based on that work plane, and cannot create "normal" plan view based on that ref plane (well, using section workaround mentioned by Elton may solve it but you still need to create ref plane on that work plane first), attached image is from my previous attached RVT file, that's what I did for creating "plan" view which is actually a 3D view oriented to that work plane, not quite my desired result.
