Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using cutaway views, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
In this movie, I'm going to show you how to create a cutaway sectional 3D Sometimes…you want to get a better look at a certain portion of your building.…And even though you can go in an use visibility graphics or temporary hide…isolate, or permanent hide, and hide and isolate certain elements.…Sometimes it's going to be easier to just go in and actually create a custom 3D View.…And the easiest way to do that is to actually modify the section box that you…used to define the 3D view. So, instead of showing the entire model,…we can actually crop it down to just a particular area.…
Now, you can do this manually, but the fastest way to do it is to actually use an…existing view to set the extents of the 3D view.…So, that's the process I want to walk you through right here.…I'm in a view called Cutaway view. I'm going to zoom in here on the top of…the plan, and perhaps I want to get a better look at my stairwell and see how it…fits into the surrounding context, and make sure I'm satisfied with how…everything's coming together. You can see here that I've got a section…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
