- [Voiceover] In this movie I want to talk about…how you can create cutaway three-dimensional views…of certain portions of your model.…So, we've talked about how we can create 3D views…and we've seen ways that we can cut sections,…and even create callout views.…And just all of these give us opportunities to…study the model from different vantage points…and at different sizes and scales.…But sometimes it's just really helpful…to get in and take a look at how things…are shaping up in 3D,…and you want to do that maybe with…only a portion of the object,…so you want to kind of isolate…that 3D view into a certain area.…
If I go to the "default 3D view" button…and I kind of look at this,…it's showing me the entire building.…Now, we could certainly start selecting objects…and using the "temporary height isolate" mode…that we talked about in a previous movie…to start hiding them so that we could…get in and take a better look,…but sometimes it's actually just a little bit easier…to kind of create a permanent view that's…cropped down to the area that we want.…

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.
