    Window Cut Plane

    I have a window that is above the cut plane of the view, so I added a plan view and set it to cut the window. I know about the issue of the window family needing to have it's cut plan shown as actually cutting the window, which I did. The problem is, only half of the window is showing up.

    I've tried different cut planes, symbolic lines, everything I can think of. Why would only half of the window show up?

    By the way, there is a drop box I created that is under the window. That's what's showing up in the plan view as well. That looks like it should, though.

    Can you post a screen capture of the plan region´s view range settings?

      Sill is at 5'-1 1/2" and the size is 33"X33".

        Set both the bottom and view depth just in between the two windows. That will make the dropbox stuff go away (Do you want to see that part or not?). Then, edit the boundaries of the plan region, making them a little wider in all directions, especially the long edges in front of the window.

          I'd like to see the drop box underneath. But I did what you said just to experiment and the window still shows the same, no matter how big I make the plan region.

          Actually, I just looked at my family again and checked the "show only when cut" button for my symbolic lines, and that fixed it. I don't know why, but it did! Now on to other issues............

            I think the problem lies with the way you modelled your window. Did you by any chance create the verticals and top horizontal (don't know the correct english term) in 1 sweep? this can give this kind of error with plan regions... the solution is modelling the verticals as seperate sweeps. that way, you won't need to model the symbolic lines.

              Yep, that's exactly how I did it. That's how all of my windows and doors are done, and it's never been a problem........until now.

              Oh well, let's put that in the "revit quirks" department. lol

                Yep. Never got it figured out completely: seems to happen to random families at random times. I do know that the only 100% way to prevent it is using 3 seperate sweeps and checking off "Visible in Plan View" for the top horizontal.

                  That actually makes a lot of sense. I'd rather have one sweep, but the fact that you can turn off the top frame in plan view seems like it would make life easier.
