    Unwanted Lines in Slab section

    We created a custom profile for a slab and when I cut a section through it it has a second profile running through it. Can't seem to get rid of these unwanted lines. The slab and section are perpendicular and the view depth is set to the minimum. Anybody come across this before?

    when you say "custom profile" is this a revit family?
    It seems someone left additional bits in the family, probably model lines or 2D lines they used to sketch the profile but its hard to say without seeing how you modeled this element.
    First guess is its elements left in the family that need to be deleted if it is a custom family

      Presuming it's a family there could be an issue. have you tried window tile (shortcut WT) and moving the section around in the plan view while checking if the line remains in the same position in the elevation?

        The profile was created using the Revit Family 'Metric Profile.rft' and then a new roof slab was created and this profile was selected. On inspecting the profile there doesn't appear to be any extra lines...

          Looks to me like the spacing of the profile is off

            Ya I recreated the profile with none of the dimension parameters, just a simple profile. Opened up a fresh project and created a new floor with the profile selected. When creating a normal rectangular floor the profile shows up fine in section however when I introduce a complex shape (like the one need for the shape of the building) the rogue profile shows up again. I'm going to try divide up the slab so the part where the section is take will be a simple shape ans see does this solve the problem.

              Just remember the size of the profile is static, you set the spacing of the profile in the floor family settings

                This was going to be my suggestion. Did it help resolve your issue?

                  It worked as a workaround. It's not ideal having a slab split up into multiple sections just to ensure the sections show the correct detail. For example if a slab edge changes I could end up having to update the sketch of multiple slab sections.

                  This could also create a headache when collaborating with a team of modellers working on the same model. Someone jumping in to provide modelling assistance might find it very odd having a standard slab split up into smaller segments. Also, in the use of Multi-Category Tags, if the parameters change for, say, a tag it would have to be changed in all the slabs. It all seems like an annoying workflow just to show a slab profile correctly.

                  It should be noted also that I created a slab in a fresh model with the same complex shape and it seems to show the section correctly. Strange.

                    Not sure if this is to late one thing to check is that exactly the same concrete material is used on each piece or they will not join correctly either
