Revit Tip: Dimensioning Frames

Dimensioning frame elevations

When it comes time to dimension a frame elevation Revit can give you a lot of trouble displaying the desired dimension string.


Revit sometimes will not display a dimension string you just completed.


Instead of displaying some dimensions in a frame elevation, Revit will often hide portions of a string from view. Sometimes the solution is simply making the viewport bigger to accommodate the end line of the dimension string.

Other times it can be near impossible to get any of the dimension strings to show up. This is particularly tricky when we are elevating our curved service drive. One tip to make sure that you don't get any trouble is in relation to the elevation creation. Make absolute certain that the elevation you create is parallel to the frame you want to dimension.



Otherwise, any dimension you create will cause lots of problems.
