Trim/Extend Grids and Levels

Trim and Extend tool doesn’t work with Grid and Level. Extent end of Grid and Level have two modes: 3d model extent mode and 2d view specific extent mode. It’s not easy to switch between two extent modes and drag their ends, especially if there are lots of Grids or Levels. It’s tedious to click one by one to show or hide bubbles of many Grids or Levels. ReviTea Datum tools could make your work easy.

  • Trim Grids tool works similar to Trim and Extend tool of Revit. With it you could easily trim or extend one or more Grids to a boundary defined by Grid, Level, Reference Plane or Detail Line.
    • Trim/Extend Grid 3d: Trim or extend a Grid 3d extents to the reference (Grid, Level, Reference Plane or Detail Line) as a boundary. Grid’s 2d extent will switch to 3d extent.
    • Trim/Extend Multiple Grids 3d: Trim or extend multiple Grids’ 3d extents to the reference (Grid, Level, Reference Plane or Detail Line) as a boundary. The extent end of a Grid that is close to the boundary is trimmed or extended. Grids’ 2d extents will switch to 3d extents.
    • Trim/Extend Grid 2d: Trim or extend a Grid 2d extent to the reference (Grid, Level, Reference Plane or Detail Line) as a boundary. Grids’ 3d extents will switch to 2d extent.
    • Trim/Extend Multiple Grids 2d: Trim or extend multiple Grids’ 2d extents to the reference (Grid, Level, Reference Plane or Detail Line) as a boundary. The extent end of a Grid that is close to the boundary is trimmed or extended. Grids’ 3d extents will switch to 2d extents.
    • Set Grids 3d Height: Set Grids’ 3d (model) extents in vertical direction by defining levels and offset.
  • Trim Levels tool works similar to Trim and Extend tool of Revit. With it you could easily trim or extend one or more Levels to a boundary defined by Grid, Reference Plane or Detail Line.
    • Trim/Extend Level 3d: Trim or extend a Level 3d extents to the reference (Grid, Reference Plane or Detail Line) as a boundary. Level’s 2d extent will switch to 3d extent.
    • Trim/Extend Multiple Levels 3d: Trim or extend multiple Levels’ 3d extents to the reference (Grid, Reference Plane or Detail Line) as a boundary. The extent end of a Level that is close to the boundary is trimmed or extended. Levels’ 2d extents will switch to 3d extents.
    • Trim/Extend Level 2d: Trim or extend a Level 2d extent to the reference (Grid, Reference Plane or Detail Line) as a boundary. Levels’ 3d extents will switch to 2d extent.
    • Trim/Extend Multiple Levels 2d: Trim or extend multiple Levels’ 2d extents to the reference (Grid, Reference Plane or Detail Line) as a boundary. The extent end of a Level that is close to the boundary is trimmed or extended. Levels’ 3d extents will switch to 2d extents.
