View templates are tools for applying specific settings to views. Using view templates in Revit Architecuter 2015 makes it easy to achieve consistent settings across multiple views. Although visibility graphics allow for the modification and managing of various types of Revit Architecture views, complexities may arise when several similar views are used. This online course will teach you how view settings can be captured, saved, and applied to different types of views.
…Visibility/Graphics gives us a way to modify what…we're seeing on a view by view basis.…And as we saw in the previous movie, it can be…a very powerful way for us to manage different kinds of views.…But what do you do in a situation where you have a…project that has lots of views that are similar to one another?…So maybe you have a ten-story building,…and whatever changes you make on your Level…1 floor plan or furniture plan you want to see on the upper levels as well.…In cases like that we have a feature called view templates…and all a view template does is capture all of the settings…that you've applied to a view, saves them under a name and…then you can apply those setting to other similar kinds of views.…
So let's have a look.…So I'm in a file called View Template, and I'm in the Level 1 floor plan.…And I'm going to zoom in on some portion of the floor plan over here.…So, as you can see there's this concrete stipple…pattern applied across all the floor slabs in this view.…Now, that may be appropriate to show in elevation views, but…

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.
