Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Displacing sub-elements, part of Revit: Construction Modeling Tools.
…Sometimes the element you want to displace is part of a larger element, which…makes it a little difficult to get the exact result you are looking for.…In such a situation we have a few techniques…that we could use help us displace a sub-element.…One possibility is if the sub-element is…actually part of a larger component family.…In that case there's a setting that we can enable inside…of the family in order to make the sub element displaceable.…Another method we can use is to use the…parts functionality that we talked about in the previous chapter.…
So in this movie I'd like to look at both of those techniques and…I'm in a file called displace sub elements in order to help me do that.…Now the view that I have open on-screen is the displacement path's 3D…view, and I've just orbited around so that I can see the patio.…Now, let's say that I have this door,…right here, and I want to displace that door.…Well that's easy enough.…I can just simply go to Displace Elements and then move the door.…But if I wanted to further displace the muntin pattern…
