Viewing your project in different ways is a great way to gain a greater insight into how your project will look when you're finished. You can use Revit to view your image three-dimensionally, or you can zoom in and out just by rolling your mouse. Learn how navigating views with Zoom, Pan, and Rotate lets you see your work from different angles in this online course.
…Learning how to navigate in the various views…in a Revit project is an important skill.…So in this movie I'd like to show you how to do some…basic actions like zoom and pan, and how to orbit a 3D view.…So I'm in a file here called Condo, and we're going to…use this just as a back drop to do some view navigation.…You can really open up any file you like.…Now, the easiest way to navigate a view.…Is to use the wheel on your mouse.…So if you don't have a wheel mouse.…You definitely want to invest in one.…If you roll the wheel.…It will zoom out if you roll down.…
And if I roll up, it will zoom in.…Now you'll notice that the zooming.…Is taking place pretty much where my mouse is.…So, if I move my mouse.…Say over here on top of the building, and then repeat…that, you'll see that the zooming is more centered on that location.…Move it over here on the parking lot, same thing.…So you can control not only the level of zoom, but where the zoom…is focused on, simply by the way you move the mouse and roll the wheel.…Now, if you hold in the wheel, and drag.…

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.
