Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using view templates, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Visibility Graphics gives us a way to modify…what we're seeing on a view-by-view basis,…and as we saw in the previous movie…it can be a very powerful way for us…to manage different kinds of views.…But what do you do in a situation…where you have a project that has lots…of views that are similar to one another.…So maybe you have a 10 story building,…and whatever changes you make…on your Level One floor plan or furniture plan,…you want to see on the upper levels as well.…In cases like that we have a feature called View Templates,…and all a view template does is capture all…of the settings that you've applied to a view,…saves them under a name, and then you can apply…those settings to other similar kinds of views.…
So let's have a look.…So I'm in a file called View Template,…and I'm in the Level One floor plan.…And I'm gonna zoom in on some portion…of the floor plan over here.…So as you can see there's this concrete stipple pattern…applied across all the floor slabs in this view.…Now that may be appropriate to show…

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.
