If visibility graphics or temporary hide tools do not provide a desired view of a sketch, a section box can be modified to create a custom cutaway sectional 3D view. This online Revit Architecture tutorial demonstrates how to use cutaway views in Revit Architecture 2015 to crop models and only show selected areas.
…In this movie I'm going to show you how to create a cutaway sectional 3D view.…Sometimes you want to get a better look at a certain portion of your…building, and even though you can go in and 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's 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.…

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.
