Views in Revit are the different methods that you can look at your building model while you're working on it. You can look at things two-dimensionally, three-dimensionally, or as a tabular list or report. In this tutorial, you'll learn how using the project browser lets you see the different views that are available in your project.
…Your Revit project is a complete virtual building model that can be viewed,…edited, and explored three dimensionally, two dimensionally,…and in various reports and tabular lists.…Each such representation of your project is referred to in Revit as a view.…Views are listed and accessed in the project browser.…This functions like a table of contents for your project in much the same…way as a table of contents for a book tells you what the book contains.…The project browser will tell you what views are contained in…your project, and you'll use it to navigate to those various views.…
So I'm in a file here called Condo, if you'd like to…follow along, and we want to look over here at the Project Browser.…The Project Browser palette is typically located over…on the left hand corner of the screen.…Now it can be moved or relocated.…It can even be closed, but I certainly don't recommend doing that.…Let's start by what could happen if the…Project Browser or, in fact, the Properties palette…that we talked about in the previous movie,…

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.
