Disconnect Elements

Disconnect Elements


When moving parts in Revit, connected elements are also moved, while this is sometimes helpful, it may also be a nuisance. The Disconnect Elements feature can separate one or many elements so adjustments can easily be made when needed. The Disconnect Elements feature works with both Families and ITM elements.
