We're going to run through a bunch of stuff in this video. First we are going to create a callout and bump up the scale. Then we will set our detail level to fine. Then, and this is my favorite addition to Revit, we will select some items and generate an automatic 3D view that puts a crop region around the area of the items we have selected! We will lock that 3D view and make a spectacular sheet!
- [Narrator] What I'd like to do in this video…is drill in a little bit deeper and do a detailed view.…Now that we have stuff modeled and laid out…that doesn't mean we're telling people…how it's actually gonna come together.…So let's make a nice call out view.…Let's dimension it, let's wire it up,…let's drag it on to a sheet.…So under projects let's go open.…Now I'm gonna grab detail view,…and I'm gonna click open.…Now what I'd like to do is I'm gonna go down to…Power One Floor Plan.…
I'm gonna zoom in over here.…I'm gonna go ahead and I'm gonna make…a call out of this area.…So, I'm gonna go to view, I'm gonna go to call out,…I'm gonna pick a window right around all this stuff.…Now I'm gonna double click on the bubble,…and I'm gonna open up my call out.…In my project browser, I'm gonna right click,…and I'm gonna re-name this.…I'm gonna call this enlarged electrical room.…
I'm gonna click okay.…I'll keep my scale at quarter inch equals a foot.…I'm definitely gonna set my detail level to fine.…Now I can zoom in and start dimensioning stuff.…
