One of the most commonly asked questions in Revit is “How do I Line up my Crop Regions on multiple floor plans, so I see exactly the same area on each floor?”
To do this I find that most people tend to duplicate their view and then manually move the crop region roughly into position. However there is a more accurate way of doing exactly this.
We have a function called the Scope box which will allow us to create an outline for a crop region all the way up the building.
In order to do this simply use the following steps:
- Make sure you have multiple levels set up in your project.
- Check the height of the scope box you require.
- You are now set to create a scope box in a floor plan view. Go to a plan view, click Scope Box on the Create Panel of the View Tab.
- On the Options bar, enter a name and specify a height for the scope box, (hopefully you’ve checked the height)
- Draw a scope box by clicking in the upper-left corner to start the scope box and clicking in the lower-right corner to finish the scope box.
Now the scope box is drawn, we need to tell Revit which view need to use the scope box.
- Open the floor plan view that you want to associate with the scope box.
- Go to the View Properties panel, scroll down to scope box and select the correct one from the drop down.
- You should now find the crop regions are now the same. Repeat this up the building as required.
