How to Change Revit Family Visibility Settings | Bradley Toilet Paper Dispenser

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Jul 30, 2015 7:37:36 AM

Client Question: The various Bradley Toilet Tissue Dispenser Revit models display a toilet paper roll. When I load the Revit model, the paper roll does not always display in my Revit project views. How can I best control the paper roll visibility?

Answer: Here are a few display options for controlling the toilet paper roll visibility:

I'll use a Bradley Diplomat (Recessed) Dispenser Revit Model in this tutorial.

1) Verify the Paper Product Visibility Parameter is Turned ON; when the Revit family is selected.

2) The Toilet Paper Roll visibility setting is ON -for Medium / Fine, not Coarse.

3) Open the Bradley Revit family and change the Visibility Settings for COARSE.

  • Go to a 3D View
  • Select the Paper Roll
  • Pick Visibility Settings Button above
  • Check the Coarse Setting to enable viewing of the paper roll with Coarse setting.
  • Pick OK.

* Tip: Notice the 3D solids' visibility settings are unchecked (OFF) for Plan/RCP, Front/Back and Left/Right -so solids are not visible in the orthographic views.

After changing the visibility setting, load or reload the family into the project.
