Understanding view range

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 the plan as basically a horizontal section, cutting the building at a predetermined height above the floor, and then looking down into the model. Naturally, there are many other rules that are in abstractions that are applied to the graphics to achieve an acceptable floor plan. However, the concept of cut plane is used quite literally in Revit. In this movie, we will look not just at the cut plane, but the entire view range and understand how it functions and how we can manipulate it in floor plan views.

What I have onscreen is a file called View Range and I am at the second floor right now, and what I would like to do is direct your attention to these windows right over here, and let's just talk about view range. Again, from architectural drafting, you should be pretty comfortab...
