If there are portions of your building plans that you need to hide or expound upon further, the Filled and Masking Regions tool within Revit can prove invaluable. This online tutorial illustrates the functions of this tool and how it can be utilized within your drawings. You will see that by using this tool, you can pull up your various details whenever necessary to hone your project.
…In this movie, we're going to look at filled regions and masking regions.…Filled and masking regions are two dimensional…shapes that you can apply to your views…that help you to either cover up or…to further articulate certain parts of the drawing.…Like other detailing components in Revit, they are view specific.…So, they only appear in whatever view you draw them in.…And they are two dimensional.…Now, if you've watched some of the previous movies.…You've already kind of seen the effects of filled and masking regions.…
If I zoom in a little bit here on this view, over here on the right hand side.…This break mark component that we have,…actually has a masking region built into it.…So, when I select it, these grips here are controlling the shape…of that masking region and that's what's covering up the underlying model.…This concrete fill pattern that we have here on the steel pan,…that's actually a filled region that's built in to that detail component.…So, we're really already seen both of…these components, we've just seen the result of…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
