- [Voiceover] In this movie, we'll look at…filled and masking regions.…Filled and masking regions are two dimensional shapes…that you apply to your drafting views…to help you either cover up underlying geometry…or further articulate certain parts of the drawing.…Like an other detail component,…they are view specific and two-dimensional,…and we can draw them in any view that we like.…If you've been following along in the detailing process…throughout the other movies in this chapter,…then you've already actually seen some examples…of filled and masking regions.…This breakline component that we have over here…actually incorporates a masking region.…
So the reason it's able to cover up the underlying geometry…is because there's a mask in there…and I like to think of masks…as basically just like a piece of White Out.…There's a filled region incorporated…into this stair tread detail that we have here…and it's using that stipple pattern there…to represent a concrete filled pan.…So that's an example a filled region…as is this shape that's making up the steel shape.…

First, get comfortable with the Revit environment, and learn to set up a project and add the grids, levels, and dimensions that will anchor your design. Then author Paul F. Aubin helps you dive into modeling: adding walls, doors, and windows; creating and mirroring groups; linking to external assets and DWG files; and working with floors, roofs, and ceilings.
Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawings so all the components are clearly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
