Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating sprinkler and coordination views, part of Revit: Sprinkler Design.
- [Instructor] The way Revit sets up views…in the project browser…is light-years away from any other other…drafting or modeling program out there.…Instead of an endless array…of layers and display configurations,…Revit never makes you go more than two dialogs deep…to create as many views as you want.…The objective of this video is to go through the settings…that make a sprinkler view a sprinkler view.…We'll then go to visibility graphics…and then turn off all the unwanted trades…that we don't want to see.…So, let's jump into Revit.…Go to Projects and then I'll go Open…and I'm gonna browse to where I'm keeping my models.…
Now click Okay.…Let's make sure that we're in Mechanical,…HVAC,…Floor Plans,…Level One.…In your Properties, notice that you have…Visibility Graphics Overrides right here.…You can either click the Edit button…in your Properties dialog…or type VG for Visibility Graphics.…This is where we can turn on or off…any items that we see in our view.…It's almost kind of like your layer dialog in AutoCAD,…only it's object-driven, which is much better.…
