Ramp with Detail and Finishing Layer in Revit ?

From the first time I start to use Ramp command in Revit I find many issue for this tool and now after eleven years we don’t have any improvements for this command , now I want to show you how we can create Ramp with all detail then we need !? is this possible ? yes , very simple .

Let’s start , first step is about the creating normal Ramp as usual like the below picture


Ramp With detail 1

Then you can turn of the Railing Category for floor plan , because you need to select the boundary of Ramp.

Now start to create Floor , but Floor type name should contain (( Ramp )) . when you want create the boundary for ramp be careful and use pick line tool with turn on Lock option in the Option bar.

Change the Elevation parameter Like the below picture ( if you need to find Height for Landing you can try to change single border elevation with click and drag and you can see how single edge can match with the Landing Border and you can find the Elevation )

In fact now you have a ramp with detail in the Finishing Layer but you need change something for present this Ramp in the Section view. So , you can turn off ramp category for all of the Section views.
