In this article we are going to take a look at "View References" within Revit. View References are an annotation symbol that you can use to direct someone to a different view on another sheet- or the same sheet, if you wish.

 

 

View References are commonly used with Matchlines but (with a little immagination) they can be used for a variety of purpose- especially if you are prepared to edit the family.

Let's kick-off with a quick example of the use of View References in conjunction with Matchlines. Here is a plan I have split into two zones, using "Dependent Views". The image below is of the "Primary View" so that you can see the crop regions of the two Dependent Views.....

Welcome to the Revit Zone article on Matchlines. In this article we are going to take a look at what Matchlines are, within Revit. We are going to show you how to produce them and also when you would want to use them.

So what exactly are Matchlines? Matchlines are basically sketch lines that are used to show where a view is split. Matchlines are most commonly used in conjunction with "Dependent Views". If you are yet conversent with "Dependent Views" in Revit, you can find a couple of introductory articles HERE and HERE.

In this article we are going to take a look at the Duplicate View tool, within Revit Architecture. Please note that this tool is also found in all other flavours of Revit (ie Revit Structure and Revit MEP) and works in exactly the same manner.

The “Duplicate View” tool can be found on the “View” menu, in the “Create” tab. The interesting thing about the tool is that it contains three different options. These are:-

a) Duplicate View

b) Duplicate with Detailing

c) Duplicate as Dependent

In this article we will take a quick overview of Legends, within Revit. Legend views are common to all flavours of Revit (Revit Architecture, Revit MEP and Revit Structure)- so once you can use it in one flavour, you’ll be conversant with it in the others. For the sake of clarity I should point out that in this article we are talking about “Legend Views” and not “Colour Legends”. So what is a Legend? Simply put, it is a way of displaying a list of various model components and annotations used in a project.

 

Legends fall into 3 main types. These are as follows:-
