    Irregular shaped viewport.

    Hello everyone.

    My model consists of two buildings. The shapes of these buildings do not allow me to draw a straight line between them. I need to print one building per page.

    Is it possible to adjust the viewport to show only part of my model. I am using Revit 2013.

    I already did it, but in a very hard way. In the floor plans, I was hiding the part of the model I didn't want to show. To show another part I duplicated the view with detailing.
    Is there a smarter way to do this?

    Thanks.

    Not in 2013. You'll need 2015 to get non-rectangular crops. In the meantime you can use a rectangular crop and a masking region. I don't recommend hiding elements manually.

    Thanks Greg, I will dig in to rectangular crop and masking region. One more area to learn.

    One thing to remember here is that irregular crop regions still carry the original 'bounding box' of the crop region. This means that if you have 2 of these images on a sheet, one may well hide the other in any area that the other sits 'under' the one 'on top'. Thanks to this forum I learnt this a few months ago.
