Welcome to this week's Four Minute Friday! Today, we will be talking about displaced elements in Revit.
Displaced elements in Revit allow you to create exploded views of your design. You can use these displaced elements to better explain the process of construction, or to show elements of design that might otherwise be hidden or unclear. The displaced sets are specific to a view, so you can create presentation views that do not interfere with your documentation views.
Thank you for joining us for today's Four Minute Friday. If you enjoyed today's video, be sure to check out this video where we introduce Revit Live.
Today’s Four Minute Friday shows how to use the Global Parameter command in Revit. The global parameter allows you to control multiple dimensions throughout the project and control them with one value or formula.
Let's go ahead and switch over to Revit to take a look at this!
Introduction to Revit Live
This four-minute Friday is an introduction to Autodesk Live. We spend a few minutes in Revit to show how a Live Scene is created. We open up the Revit Live application, review its interface and then spend some time reviewing the design.
In today's Four Minute Friday, Patrick Hill, TPM Application Engineer, will show you how to use the "Depth Cueing" option in your Revit views.
How to Use the "Depth Cueing" Option In Your Revit Views
Today's Four Minute Friday video shows you how to use the "Depth Cueing" option in your Revit views. This option will allow users to create elevation views that indicate depth of view. Depth of view defines how items closer to the viewer are darker and fade as the geometry gets farther from the viewer.
Today’s Four Minute Friday show you how you can have different dimensional settings, or units, in your annotation tags when using Revit. This example shows how you can round up the length value in the annotation tag to the nearest 1”.
Today’s Four Minute Friday covers the use of Workset display tools in Revit. Revit includes a set of options that allows you to more easily see what the status of your projects worksets are. You can color code objects based on ownership, checkout status, modified or what workset the object is placed in.
This Four minute Friday shows how to create automated room occupancy tags in Revit 2017. In the past we’ve been able to have the calculated values show in a schedule but not a room tag. We now have this capability in Revit 2017.
