Wall-Based families and the Elevation Instance Property - The Revit Clinic

Source: http://revitclinic.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/01/wallbased-families-and-the-elevation-instance-property.html

By default when you load a wall-based family into a project, an Elevation instance property is created. This controls the elevation of the component family from the associated level.

Elevation

Say you’re creating some casework wall-based families and you want to control what this elevation dimension is based on. For example the top of the cabinets versus the bottom on the cabinets.

If you want the elevation set to the top of the cabinets, open the family and go to one of the elevation views. Locate the Top reference plane > Instance Properties.

Top

Check the box for Defines Origin.

DefinesOrigin

This will set the Elevation parameter to be based off the Top reference plane when loaded into the project versus the default reference level of the family. You could then model your geometry based off this reference plane.
