Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with sections, part of Revit: Fire-Alarm Systems Design (2015).
- Cutting a section sure makes it easy to model items…such as pipe and conduit.…But the truth is, the actual reason we cut a section…is to actually create a detail.…To get started, let's jump into Revit.…Under Fire Alarm, Floor Plans,…let's go to our ENLARGED ELECTRICAL PLAN.…I'm gonna zoom into this area here…and I'd like a detail of this area.…To do that, on my Quick Access tool bar,…I'm gonna click on the Section button.…I'm gonna cut a section right through here.…
I'm gonna zoom out a little bit.…I'm gonna grab this grip here…and I'm gonna pull my section down…so all I can see is this conduit,…this panel, this cable tray,…and I'm gonna hit Escape a couple of times.…I'm gonna open up my section by double-clicking…on the bubble.…I'm gonna set my Detail Level to 5…and I'm gonna come over to my Properties…in my Project Browser and I'm gonna rename this guy.…So for my View Name, with my CAPLOCKs turned on,…I'm gonna call it SECTION AT…ELECTRICAL ROOM…and I'm gonna hit Apply.…
I'm gonna bring my crop region down a little bit more.…
