Area Plans & Same Elevation Levels - The Revit Clinic

Training/Repost: http://revitclinic.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/02/area-plans-same-elevation-levels.html

When creating an Area Plan in Revit, if there is another level with the same elevation area boundary lines will be detected on both plans.

For example, you have levels Level 1 & Level 1A both at elevation 0’-0”:

Level 1 has some area boundary lines which were manually placed in the view. These are only visible in Level 1 but technically exist at the same elevation in both views:

When creating the Area Plan for Level 1A you would receive a warning but can hit OK to continue. This is referring to the 4 area boundary lines overlapping at the same elevation between the two views:

So if you run into seemingly invisible area boundary lines in a view I would first verify there isn’t already an area plan for that project level. One item to keep in mind is this would not apply for duplicated or dependent views. The image below shows Level 1A detecting the boundary lines from Level 1 since they are at the same elevation:
