I have been the only person in the company using Revit, so basically I've been self taught. The trouble is I can get stuck doing things a certain way, and maybe it's not the best way to get the job done.
I want to have an isometric detail with a couple of dimensions and some callouts. I don't want to take the time to draw a front, side and top view of the item, so an isometric would be the best view to use. So, I go and draw up a family and insert it into the project.
Currently I place one instance of the family into a plan view. Then I duplicate a 3D view and hide all the extra stuff so I can detail my isometric view. Now, I don't want that item showing up on all the other drawings so I open up each drawing and make sure that item is hidden in the view.
Is this how everyone does it, or is there a better way? I'd think it would be best if I could insert the family into a Detail View and detail it there, and not ever actually place it in the model. Any thoughts?
I've attached a very simple Cable tray support family.
