Revit 2017 - Reference Plane Subcategories

Revit OpEd

As I shared in the What's New post the other day, we can create our own Reference Plane subcategories; in both projects AND Families. It is my opinion that Families should NOT bring Object Style subcategories for Reference Planes into Projects when they are loaded.

Detail Item and Reference Plane Settings

Revit OpEd

When this family was made they paid no attention to the IsReference setting for the reference planes. The Center (Left/Right) IsReference setting is assigned to what should be the Left reference plane. The stock Revit family Nominal Cut Lumber-Sectio n isn't built very well.

Naming a Reference Plane

Revit OpEd

I read recently that just adding a name to a reference plane would cause it to be "strong". The notion of Strong, Weak and Not a Reference are related to the IsReference parameter, which I''ve written about before. I also added a dimension string across each detectable reference plane.

View Reference User Experience Inequality

Revit OpEd

The View Reference feature reveals information differently according to how you access the feature. When you create a new view and choose the Reference Other View option you get the sheet and detail number value (when the view is on a sheet) in the description in addition to the view name, like this. When you want to fix or change a View Reference the sheet and detail number values are not presented to us, like this. of Wishes Opinion UI User Interface View Reference

Reference Plane Order

Revit OpEd

When you draw reference planes the order they were created plays a role in how a parameter will move them later. Draw two new vertical parallel reference planes, draw one on the left and then next to the right of the first. Flex the parameter value and watch the reference plane on the right move. If you have a lot of reference planes it can get confusing but this underlying behavior is lurking there. Reference Planes Family Editor Tips Dept. This is subtle.

Family Templates and Reference Plane Inequity

Grips Location - Reference Planes vs Lines

Revit OpEd

When you apply an instance parameter to a strong/weak reference plane you'll get grips that let you alter the element directly in the view. When you do this to a reference line you get them too. There is a difference between the two Reference types in how they affect the grips though.
