How to Use Plan Regions in Autodesk Revit

Ever needed to show a floor plan where you have floors which step up or down? Atriums which have objects suspended from the ceiling (or any object out of the normal cut plane range), or where windows have their cill height set higher than the overall view cut plane – say a clerestory window for example?

This can easily be achieved using Plan Regions (defining multiple cut planes within a plan view).

A plan region defines a cut plane at a different height than the cut plane that is used for the rest of the view. Plan regions are useful for split level plans or for displaying inserts above or below the cut plane.

Take the example below where the floor plan does not show the clerestory window.

1. In your chosen plan view, go to View> (Create Panel) Plan Views> Plan Region.

2. Draw a defining boundary around the area you wish to add a different View Range to.

3. Set the View Range and click OK to finish.

NOTE: Plan regions are view-specific. You can copy and paste them into the same view or different views. When you copy a plan region into a different view, the view range settings are maintained from the previous view.

Plan regions export and print when they are visible in a view.
