Plan views can be used to manipulate how objects above or below the view range are displayed. If a cut plane in Revit Architecture is intersected, the display remains available until the bottom of the view range is reached. This video will show you how to display objects above and below in plan views in Revit Architecture 2015.
…Continue our exploration of the view range dialogue.…In the previous movie, we focused on the…cut plane and how we could manipulate that.…But we often want to customize our floor plans and…control the way that objects either above or below display.…So, in this movie I'd like to look at how we can ensure that objects…above the View Range or below the View Range display in the way that we'd like.…Now, I'm going to start in this file called above…below and I'm going to start in the kitchen area,…the break room area over here, and just do…a really common example of something that occurs up above.…
The rules of the View Range say that,…if you are either intersecting the Cut Plane, or…below the Cut Plane, that you'll display as long…as you're above the bottom of the View Range.…Let me explain.…Scroll down.…Click on the View Range button.…Essentially, what I've just said is any object…that appears between here and here will display.…You can see that that's actually a pretty thin slice through our floor plan.…In this case, it's only a little four foot slice through…

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.
