Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using cutaway views, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie I wanna talk about how you can create…cutaway three-dimensional views of certain portions…of your model.…So we've talked about how we can create 3D views…and we've seen ways that we can cut sections and even…create callout views and all of these give us opportunities…to study the model from different vantage points…and at different sizes and scales.…But sometimes it's just really helpful to get in…and take a look at how things are shaping up in 3D…and you wanna do that maybe with…only a portion of the objects.…You wanna kind of isolate that 3D view into a certain area.…
If I go to the default 3D view button and I look at this,…it's showing me the entire building.…Now we could certainly start selecting objects and using…the temporary hide isolate mode that we talked about…in a previous movie to start hiding them…so that we could get in and take a better look,…but sometimes it's actually a little bit easier to…create a permanent view that's cropped down…to the area that we want.…So just like we discussed the crop region for 2D views…

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.
