Floor plan view 'cut plane' height

Recommended Posts

Hi i have been a revit user and recently starting to work in VW 2020. How do we specify the elevation / height where the plan view is cut? For example, I 'd like to see a plan view cut at clerestory window height ( let's say 6', instead of the 'normal' plan view cut height of 4'). How is this done in VW 2020?

It is in the Settings of each Layer.

There is a checkbox :

Enable Cut Plane at Layer Elevation XX.XX


But AFAIK that will only help to show lower Wall's Top Views instead

of looking cut with Components visible, for Top Plan Views.

If you need more control you may want a real Horizontal Section

Viewport instead.
