    3D Elevation resets itself

    A quick one, or maybe not.

    We have a project with some elevations setup in 3d to make use of transparency of materials. For some reason, one of them keeps defaulting to its original 'birds eye' view. Its always the same one and in the same model. we have 4 other models setup identically and they all behave.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Have you tried creating a new 3d view and orienting it to the elevation you want via the view cube?

      Have you tried setting the 3D elevation view to Home?

        I would go with this option. As an extra remark: is it possible that you used the default 3D view or a copy of this view for this elevation? Because this could cause this irregular behavior. There's something hardcoded in this default view that screws these settings up. I've noticed this before and since then create new 3D views if I want them fixed on a specified orientation.

          Doesn't this set every view to home? I seem to remember something about this from "that other site".
          Maybe it's that you can only have one home view. You can't select a home view for each 3d view. I know it was something.

            It should change only the current view to home

              You have to "Save View" when you have the orientation the way you want it. The tool is in the pulldown menu under the tiny triangle near the Viewcube.

                    JCM is correct. Setting the current View to Home will only affect the current View.
                    However, you are also (partially) correct, dz. There can be only one Home View per Revit project. So if you save the current View as the Home View, it might (probably will) mess up a different View if and when you try to set THAT View to Home.

                    Truevis has the real answer to the OP.
