    This would be great yes, I am always struggling with Reflected Ceilings

    What about the "create viewpoint per level" function?
    You would want to be specific about the offsets, but the results would be what you see in a map view.

    Thanks Laura. Creating viewpoints per level is a great option.

    However, what I am more so after is a reflected view function within map view. This will enable users to give a very good understanding of how well the ceiling fixtures are placed and coordinated.

    Currently how I tackle this is scenario is by creating a section box (with box height slightly above and below the ceiling) and switching to bottom view.

    Note: This still doesn't give a "reflected" view that is consistent with the reflected view we get in Revit.

    To add on to Johns comment, Create Viewpoint Level really just sections down the view, and doesn't give us the ability to look at the reflected ceiling similar to a reflected ceiling plan like what is shown below.

    How it seems this would work best from my point of view, is if we could create a section plane (or utilize the "Create viewpoint per level" to create a section box). Then in the map tool there would ideally be a "reflected plan" checkbox that reflected the view from the bottom up instead of viewing from the top down. I agree that this would be a major value add in a small package of a checkbox that inverts the map view and mirrors that inverted view so you are still getting the top-down view as far as the building orientation goes, but you are seeing the elements as if you were looking down on the ceilings and seeing through them.

    Thanks for sharing Jackson.

    The functionality is there, you can definitely created those Viewpoints manually as you described. Perhaps an automatic way to do this sort of task is something we can do.

    I don't know if it something that can be part of the map since that is it's own tool type.

    I like Jackson's idea of having a check box for "Reflected View".

    Hi Laura, 

    When you say the functionality is there, I don't think there is a way to get a "reflected view" in revizto, rather we can only apply a bottom view (Ctrl + 0)

    The bottom view and reflected views are mirrored views. As such it gets a bit difficult when overlaying a reflected ceiling plan drawing to the 3D model or even when comparing it side by side.

    You are both correct, a view looking up and a reflected ceiling plan will not overlay.

    Reflected ceiling plans are created in a top down view, with higher cut lines and top/bottom boundaries. What I mean by the functionality is there, is working with the the top down view, creating top and bottom boundaries using the same methods that are used to create the RCP drawings.
