- In the Work Plane dialog, under Specify a new Work Plane, select one of the following options:
- Name—Choose an available work plane from the list, which contains names of levels, grids, and named reference planes.
The list is active even if you have not selected the Name option. If you choose a name from the list, Revit
automatically selects the Name option.
- Pick a plane—Revit creates a plane coincident to the selected plane. You can select any plane that can be dimensioned, including wall faces, faces in linked models, extrusion faces, levels, grids, and reference planes.
- Pick a line and use the work plane it was sketched in—Revit creates a work plane that is coplanar with the work plane of the selected line.
If the plane you choose is perpendicular to the current view, the Go to View dialog opens, giving you options of which view to open based on your selection.
For example, if you select a north-facing wall, the upper pane in the dialog lets you choose a parallel view (east or west elevation), or in the lower pane you can choose a 3D view, as shown.
- Select a view, and click Open View.
