Reflected ceiling plans use the same view range dialog and concepts as plan views with two differences. First, the bottom of the view range is disabled. The cut plane thus becomes the bottom of the view range for ceiling plans. And the view depth for ceiling plans actually occurs above the the top of the range, rather than below the bottom.

- In this video let's talk about the…view range for ceiling plans.…When you open the view range dialog…in a ceiling plan, it will look…essentially the same as the view range dialog…that we see in floor plans but there'll…be a few minor differences in the way it behaves.…The first is if you look at the bottom…of the view range, notice that it's greyed out…you can't actually change any of those settings.…This is because ceiling plans don't actually use…the bottom setting at all so they don't…really have a bottom, per se.…That means that the primary view range…for a ceiling plan is really just between…top and cut plane and cut plane…is actually the bottom of the…view range in a ceiling plan.…
And then, perhaps the most confusing part…of the view range for ceiling plans…is that the view depth even though…it's displayed at the bottom of the dialog…actually occurs above the top.…So any settings that you put in there…you have to keep in mind that view depth comes first now…it's up at the top, then comes top…then finally cut plane and all those settings…
Both floor plans and reflected ceiling plans will be considered, as well as roof and foundation plans. Once you have completed this course, you will finally understand exactly how Revit view range works.
