Master the view range settings in Revit. Learn how to adjust view range properties (Top, Cut Plane, Bottom, and View Depth) to control exactly how your roof, ceiling, and foundation plans display.
- [Voiceover] Hello, my name is Paul F. Aubin, and I'm thrilled to be here with you today to discuss the view range feature in Revit. I actually recorded a YouTube video on this subject several years ago, and it still gets views to this day. However, I thought it was due for a refresh, so in this course I'll do just that. In many ways, a plan is akin to a horizontal section cut, and as such, it actually slices the model geometry at a specific location. View range allows us to control just how much of the model will be included within that slice. But as we'll see, only certain elements within Revit are actually cutable.
This, among other things, will affect how such elements display within our projects. View range is surprisingly robust, and sometimes more than a little complex, so we'll explore all aspects of this critical feature like how to access it, how to adjust its settings, and how to customize both floor and ceiling plans to get exactly the graphics you require. We'll consider standard floor plans, roof plans, foundation plans and ceiling plans. We'll discover special case rules for elements like walls, floors and stairs and demystify the sometimes bewildering concepts of view depth and the ever elusive beyond line style.
We'll even customize view range settings within small plan region areas and learn how to control view range for link files as well. So if you're tired of wondering why view range can be such a mystery and instead are ready to master it, then you've come to the right place, let's get started.
Both floor plans and reflected ceiling plans will be considered, as well as roof and foundation plans. Once you have completed this course, you will finally understand exactly how Revit view range works.
