    Cutaway axo

    Is there a way to do this in Revit?

    Yep! As long as you are using 2012. Check the help file for "parts".

      Sure there is...
      Only I think parts aren't going to cover it for this LOD.

      My question would be: are you really planning on doing all your detailling like this or is it just for reference / generic details?

        Oh, I thought that's what parts were for? Maybe not.

        Here's a thread with a quick tutorial just in case.

          Well yes,
          but your ordinary Revit wall isn't actually made of blocks, with rebar, cement filling, and so on. So you'd need some serious custom family creation to make this work.

            Oh yeah, I see what you're getting at now. You'd have to actually build it block by block and brick by brick.

              Well what I want to do isn't to the level of detail of that axo, I just want to show the assembly of our wall and have it strip away diagonally layer by layer...I think Parts are what I need, the only problem I'm running in to is that one of of the elements I want to cut is a curtain wall of horizontal wood slats.

                Does anyone know how I would cut away my rain screen curtain wall? The horizontal slats in the image above.

                  One possible way would be to export to dwfx. Then in Design Review use the Section tool and you can make it angled to cut thru the model.

                  Or--in Revit, adjust your Section Box to cut thru the rainscreen?

                    Oui, I tried exporting the view to Design Review, then realized that I just want a cut through the rainscreen. I then isolated just the rainscreen element and exported it to Design Review and was able to make the cut that I wanted. However, the model is in color, not hidden line style, and I did not find any way to export it back into Revit.

                    Looks like I'm just going to have to export the view as a dwg and do all of my linework in CAD and import in as a drafting view.
