Description

In this set of tutorials, you'll learn how to illustrate the conceptual details of a design by creating various section views within a model. We'll begin with the details and take a look at how to create a section detail of a particular area within our model. Next we'll focus our attention on the big picture of the design and create a section view of the entire site in order to illustrate how the building interacts with the topography of it's terrain. From there, we'll take a look at how to quickly create a couple of section perspective views that will give us a peak into the model while still being able to analyze the exterior. We'll even learn how to create professional looking building sections by customizing cut patterns in the materials browser. Finally, I'll walk you through how to create a color filled legend that will illustrate and label each space within the building section view. With these concepts and tips, you'll be able to create various section views that will help you communicate the intent of your design concepts with little time and effort needed. Software required: Revit 2014.
