Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating fire-alarm views, part of Fire-Alarm Systems Design with Revit.
- The way Revit sets up views in the…project browser is light years ahead…of any other drafting or modeling program I've seen.…Instead of an endless array of layers…display configurations, paper space, model space,…project navigator, and tons of separate drawing files,…Revit never makes you go more than two dialogues deep…to create as many views as you want,…and to set those views up any way you want.…The objective of this video is to go through the settings…that make a fire alarm plan a fire alarm plan.…To do that, let's jump into Revit,…and in the project browser,…I'd like to scroll down to power, floor plans.…
Let's double-click on level one.…What I'd like to do is change some settings in this level.…Type VG.…This is called visibility graphics.…It's an override for floor plan level one,…which means that any changes we make here…are only going to show up in this floor plan level one.…What I'd like to do is to go through…and start turning on and off stuff we want to see or not.…If you're coming from AutoCAD…keep in mind there's no such thing as layers in Revit.…
