Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding view range, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Continue our exploration of the View Range dialog.…In the previous movie, we focused on the cut plane…and how we could manipulate that.…But we often want to customize our floorplans…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 gonna start in this file called Above Below,…and I'm gonna 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 could see that that's actually a pretty thin slice…through our floorplan.…In this case, it's only a little four foot slice…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
