Revit Architecture's Sketchy feature offers a unique graphic style that mimics hand-sketched drawings. This style is useful for communicating a specific intent with clients. Watch this video to learn how to use sketchy lines in Revit Architecture 2015 to transform a hard-edge drawing into something resembling a freehand sketch.
…In this movie I'd like to talk about some of the graphical display options…that we have available to us, specifically…the sketchy lines feature and ambient shadows.…I'm in a file here called Sketchy, and this is a 3D…cut away of the stair case in our little commercial office building here.…I'm just going to hold down my Shift key and my wheel, and…just kind of orbit that slightly so I can peek into that 3D view.…Zoom in a touch.…And I'll pan it over here to leave some room.…What I want to do is come down here to…the visual style pop up on the view control bar.…
And it's currently set to Shading, and I'm going to drop that back to Hidden Line.…Then after I do that I'm going to click that…pop up again and go to the Graphical Display Options.…I'm going to reposition this window so it's next to my 3D view over here.…And, there's lots of graphical display options here that we could configure.…The drop-down right here is just a repeat of…the options that were on that visual style pop-up.…I'm going to come down here to the Sketchy Line feature.…

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.
