Most of the default templates that come with Revit include some standard floor…plans an elevations to get us started, but none of them include any sections.…And sections are actually one of my favorite kinds of views that we can create…in Revit.

And I'm thinking that this stair area here…with a balcony up above is a good choice. I'll start off by zooming in on that…location. And I'm going to create a couple of…different sections that cut through this stairwell area.…
