All elements in Revit are either cutable (by plans and sections) or non-cutable. This is controlled by the object's category. To see which elements ate cutable or not, view Object Styles. Cuttable elements will display a live physical slice through the element at the cut plane in a plan view. Non-cutable elements will display in their entirety even if only just cut by the view range.

- [Voiceover] In the previous video,…we talked about the way that the category…influences the cutability of elements…in both floor plans with respective view range…and actually in sections as well.…In this video, I'd like to talk about…a couple special case rules that we have,…specifically regarding floor elements and wall elements.…And these both have to do with the way…that floor and wall elements will display…in floor plans specifically.…Remember the general rule is…you've got your view range dialog.…And I'm gonna do V + R to open up that dialog.…
And you've got the basic settings, the cut,…and the top and the bottom.…And you recall from the previous video…that any element that intersects that view range…will be eligible display in plan.…The special case rules have to do with floor elements…and wall elements and how they kind of bend…the limits of those rules…that are in that view range dialog.…So let's start with the floor elements.…Got the two windows tiled here.…I've got a floor plan and a section.…And there's actually two floor elements…
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.
