I am doing a roof that is all skylights. There are two different roofs, the roof pitches are at 1:10 and 1:24. When I look down at the roof in traditional plan view i am seeing the dimensions and families that are skewed because of the pitch. Very difficult to match up the true sides, end, etc of the familes. i am making the families to the true dimensions of the fabrication drawings but in Revit's plan view they don't look like they are the right dimensions because of the pitch. supposedly we have 5' X 10' grids but the families aren't lining up with those dimensions (see attached picture) when we insert them into the project (using faced based generic models).
Is there any way to make a plan that is true (planar?) to the pitch of the roof? How? We tried making a section over the roof at the angle of the roof to view it in true plan however the dimensions are still the same as the traditional plan view.
BTW we created a roof profile and then changed it to sloped glazing. i am using RAC 2010.
