You use multiple views in Revit Architecture, from floor plan views to ceiling views. View extents and crop regions let you limit your view, so you can focus on the most relevant aspects of your project. Learn view extents and crop regions in Revit Architecture 2015 through this online course, which explains how to change the crop region shape, enable the crop region and hide crop regions.
…Revit projects will contain lots of views.…You can access the various views on the project browser, and you've got…floor plan views, and ceiling plan views, elevation views, section views, and so on.…All of the orthographic views, like plans, sections, elevations, have a crop region.…A crop region is simply the outer most boundary of the…view and think of it as the overall extent of that view.…By default that crop region starts off being rectangular in shape.…It can be turned on.…
It can be turned off and you can…even customize that shape to be non rectangular.…So in this movie, we're going to look…at the crop regions of our orthographic views.…So I'm in a file here called View Crop Regions.…And I'm looking at a typical floor plan view.…This is the level one floor plan view.…Now if I zoom out here.…I'm going to use the wheel on my mouse.…And just sort of roll down until I'm zooming out.…You'll notice that I could really zoom almost indefinitely.…And the view just gets smaller.…And I have all this white space around.…

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.
