Sections revit Architecture

Selecting the Section function on the View tab creates sections. By default, there are three types of sections available from the Type Selector: Building, Wall, and Callout Detail. This allows them to be grouped with better clarity in the Project Browser, but there are also other important properties. Unlike with elevations, the cutting …

Elevations revit Architecture

Selecting the Elevation function on the View tab creates elevations of various types. You’ll also notice that as you place an elevation tag, the elevations automatically orient to walls (Figure 2.46). If there’s no host element nearby to reference, they’ll automatically orient to the left. Selecting the center of the tag …

Floor Plans and Ceiling Plans revit Architecture

As you learned in the section “Creating and Duplicating Levels” earlier in this chapter, when you create a level in an elevation or section view, you have the option to create a plan view for that level in the Options bar. If you have levels without corresponding plan views, you can also use …

Common Properties of Views revit Architecture

Let’s fi rst review, in detail, some of the properties that apply to most views: Crop Region With the exception of schedules and drafting views, the extents of all views can be limited using crop regions. The visibility of the crop region itself can be turned off,but note that you can …

Views revit Architecture

Views are the means by which you will interact with and document the project. As you can see in the Revit organization chart shown earlier in Figure 2.22, there are both 2D and 3D views. Two-dimensional views are oriented to specifi c coordinates like plan, elevation, section, and so on. Schedules and …

Type and Instance Parameters revit Architecture

All content in a Revit project has parameters, which are simply the information or data about something. Parameters can affect many different aspects of an object, such as visibility, behavior,size, shape, and material. To develop a fundamental understanding of parameters, you must note that there are two kinds of parameters: type and …

Content revit Architecture

Effective use of content is all about repeated elements in a hierarchy (project, family, type, instance) that you put in your Revit project to develop and document your design. Content can often maintain relationships with other content, but more important, content maintains relationships to datum objects. As you can see from the …

Using Reference Planes

Objects in the Revit model are able to maintain relationships with other objects; however, you may not always have other model elements (like walls, fl oors, and roofs) to relate to other geometry. This is why datum objects are so important. If you’ve been using Revit for a reasonable amount of …

Resetting or Maximizing 3D Extents

Two commands you might need when adjusting datum object extents are commands that give you the ability to reset or maximize the 3D extents. These commands are available in the context menu when you have a datum object selected (Figure 2.33). Figure 2.33 Extent commands in the context menu The Reset To …
