Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Hiding and isolating objects in a model, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- As your models become more complex,…it can be difficult to see and edit certain elements…from time to time.…In a previous movie, we saw that we…can use visibility graphic overrides…to hide elements at the category level.…Sometimes, however, you simply need…to hide elements temporarily.…Or you wanna hide individual, particular…elements in a certain view.…So in this movie, we're gonna look…at two ways that we can hide stuff.…We can hide things using the temporary hide command…or we can hide things in a more permanent fashion,…but we can do them object by object.…And so again in our exploration of visibility settings,…moving our way from the most global,…down to the most specific,…we're starting to now hone in on…things that are much more specifically focused…on very particular situations.…
So I'm in a view here called hide/isolate,…and I'm gonna start with the temporary…hide/isolate command.…Let's say that I wanna do some work…down in the foundation walls.…You can if I move my mouse around here,…I can get those walls to highlight,…

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 drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
