dyna-oaTue Jul 31, 2012 7:01 amHi jasonmccool8686 - thanks for your comment, we appreciate pointing this out. If Revit does not snap to points, please check which work plane is set. It should be set to the plane in which you are creating braces. I hope this helps. Alicja Dyna-Okapa, Autodesk Revit User Experience Team
lmpkaWed Aug 29, 2012 12:23 pmShould we be able to place braces in 3d view? Revit seems to see the points when placing the brace endpoints, but then ignores those points when it actually creates the brace. If I use plan view, with 3d snapping on, and I place the brace, I get something similar. It sees the beams when placing the endpoints, but then creates the braces on the reference plane. I would expect that the 3d snapping for braces would work like it does for placing beams. But this doesn't appear to be the way they work, and it would be nice for the documentation to provide an explanation for how this feature is expected to work.
3D snapping for braces should work exactly like it does for beams in a 3D view. I just verified that. The behavior you are describing sounds like 3D snapping is not enabled. If that is not the case, I recommend visiting visit the Product Support page, or post your issue to the Autodesk Discussion Forums where the user community and Product Support Team work together to answer customer questions.
