  3. Select stationing, orientation and rotation of sections and confirm with OK.

  4. Section views are created, you can find them in the project browser and place on the sheet.

You can simultaneously create dimensioning lines and place them in generated sections. In order to do it, you need to annotate the Bridge Profile in Revit Family Editor and load it into project. All of the dimensioning lines, that are not assigned to parameter will be placed on created section views.

Tip

While dimensioning the Bridge Profile in Revit Family Editor, note to assign at least one witness line to the profile line. Otherwise, created dimensions can be incorrect.

Note

Sections created with Views tool are automatically updated after changes in the axis. It may happen, however, that not all of annotations will remain and some will have to be deleted.

Note

If Consider Rotation checkbox is active, created views will be rotated according to the reference placements.
