View range involves the visibility of an object within Revit Architecture, especially orthographic visuals that render 3D objects into 2D images. An array of architecture drafting rules are used to generate Revit Architecture's orthographic views. Watch this online Revit Architecture tutorial to learn view range for Revit Architecture 2015.
…Orthographic views in Revit are generated from the 3D model…using a variety of rules derived from conventional architectural drafting.…When it comes to plan views, architectural drafting…convention treats a plan as basically a horizontal section.…Cutting the building at a pre-determined height above…the floor and looking down into the model.…Naturally there are many other rules and…abstractions applied to the graphics to achieve an…acceptable floor plan, however the concept of the…cut plane is used quite literally in Revit.…In this movie, we're going to look at the…view range feature, which incorporates the cut plane in a…few other settings, and I'm in a file here…called view range in order for us to do that.…
So, I'm looking at the level one floor plan view and…it has all of the default view range settings applied to it.…Now, let's start with where we can find the view range settings.…So, if you look at your properties pallet, make sure it says floor plan over here.…And scroll down.…And under the extense grouping, you will find a view range with an edit button.…

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.
