LAY-IN CEILING TRICK

June 14, 2014

So you have a 2’ x 2’ lay-in ceiling with 2’ x 4’ light fixtures and that ceiling grid line runs right through the fixture. How do you get rid of it? Now this may sound like that joke about whiteout on the computer screen but in Revit that’s doable.

So your grid lines are probably a #1 thickness so create a #2 white line and place it right over the line crossing your light fixture. You’ll never notice the white line break on your light fixture. Now let just see if it prints right.

I can’t stop white’g about Webit!

  1. Export to DWG and ask your consultants about the lines. Not sure what family you’re using but the old out of the box 2×2 grid and troffer lights never had the line though the fixture issue. If it did I would consider adding a masking region to the family before I went back with a “white” line. Also sounds like a coordination issue for your drawing / model set.
