In this movie we're going to look at model lines.…Model lines can be used for a variety of things, and they really are a very simple object.…They're actually a two dimensional object, but as their name implies, they are…considered part of the model. So, even though it's two dimensional line…work, it's going to show in any 3D view because Revit thinks of it as part of the model.…So, imagine that you're actually painting lines on the wall and you have a pretty…good idea of what a model line is intended for.…The example I'm going to show you is using a model line instead of actually modeling…three dimensional geometry. In the movie where we looked at sweeps and…reveals, we saw that a reveal could curve away from form of a wall.…
It may be tempting to use reveals for smaller scale details things like control…joints and very small indentations on the wall.…And while it seems like a pretty good idea at the time, on a small project, you might…be able to get away with it, but on a larger project, the overhead that you…
