    How to create an axonometric section ?

    Hello !

    Does anybody know how to make this kind of view ?
    Frankly, I am new at using Revit but I couldn`t find any tutorial about this.

      Thank you for your answer, but i beg to differ.

      The section box hides everything that`s outside of it, while in the axonometric section a part of the model was "ripped away".

      In this case what i want to create is a "inverse section box".

        oops, you're right, sorry. This has been discussed here in the past IIRC. I've got to run but do a search with some appropriate key words and see if you can come up with the thread. Good luck and if you don't find the answer it will get busy in here again on Monday and someone will know how to do that. Good luck!

          Thank you for your response. Revitforum does look like a nice community.

            You can do it on a sheet, with several views with different section boxes, compiled together. If you have a fountain and entourage in the model and you want them *in* the area like that, its one method.

            The other (which i dont advise) is to physically break the model apart at those seams, and filter those items out somehow (Filters, would be what i used). But i wouldnt do this, i would do the first method. It makes the image harder to manage, but doesnt hack up the model.

              The first way seems to be intersting, but how can I compile the views ?

                Make a 3d of the project as you want displayed (iso, etc.) then duplicate it the number of times that you want cuts.

                For e.g. you want the top-left corner cut out: now make one 3d with the section box showing the bottom half, and cutting out the top. Next make the other (duplicated) 3d show the TOP half, hiding the bottom half but this time also cutting out the left side. What you now have to do is to re-assemble these two identical but differently section-boxed 3d views on a blank sheet view, aligning them so that it appears as if the top left corner has been cut out. Repeat with as many as you need to achieve the desired cut out.

                As mentioned, since you are only playing with duplicated views, the model remains intact.
