Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing project browser organization, part of Migrating from AutoCAD to Revit.
When you build elements in a Revit project, you see them right away in the view in which you draw them.…However, because these elements are part of your model, you can immediately change views…using the Project Browser and see the elements in any other view.…Remember that, in Revit you're building a virtual model.…This means that just like in real life, if you have a room with a single door, even though…you might need several separate drawings to convey that condition.…For example, a plan, an elevation, or a section, unlike AutoCAD, in Revit, you would only draw…this condition once and then you would simply view it from several different vantage points.…
I'm in a file here called Project Browser, and it's really just a copy of where we left off after the previous movie.…If you don't have this file, you can just simply open up any Revit project for this example.…I'm going to open up a few of the views that are already here in the Project.…So, I'm starting here in a 3D view, and if we look over here in the Project Browser,…
