Adding Linework To Perspective Views in Revit

Sometimes drawing on a drawing can be tricky.

CAD Tip 1034

I often find unwanted lines appearing in my Revit perspective views, or I may have missing lines where two objects meet and cannot be trimmed.  I would like to be able to add or hide these lines quickly, without having to export the view to Photoshop or other image editing software.

If you try to use the Revit annotation tools while working in the perspective view, you will find they are grayed out, that is, not available.

The work-around I use is to place the perspective view onto a sheet and then draw the linework directly on the sheet, working on top of the perspective.

The downside of this is that if someone moves the view on the sheet, the linework will no longer be in alignment with the view.  Also, when you look at the perspective view outside of the sheet, the added linework is always missing.

I’m hoping this issue will be addressed in an upcoming release of Revit.

Happy CADDing! 🙂
