Revit Tips and Tricks - Part 1 of 3

This is the first of a series of Tips and Tricks for Revit Architecture 2012 - 2013

1.       Project Browser Search (2013 Only)

If you Right Click on a Project Browser view you now have the option to type in a key word which will then be highlighted in the project browser hierarchy.


2.       Project Browser Right Click Shortcut

If you right click on Legends, Schedules and Sheets you have the option to Create “New”.


3.       Saving Families in a Project

You can save all of your families in a project into a specific folder by going to the Save As function under the Application icon and selecting Library – Family. This will then ask you where you want the families saved and save a copy of all the families in your project into the specific folder.

Here you can also save Views into another Revit project, this does not save the model into another project, just selected views as 2D views.

4.       Plan Region

Use the Plan Region Tool to show windows that are higher than your view’s cut plane.

You can edit the View Range of a Plan Region independently from the View you are working in.

5.       Ambient Shadows

This style creates shadows with subtle gradients which gives your model more realistic shading and depth.
