    Anyone else make diagrams using Revit?

    I've seen a few websites showcasing assembly and construction diagrams done in revit, but I mean few. In my office we've always used rhino for this, and just started breaking into revit so I've been experimenting a bit to see if we could make a decent graphic without having to use two 3D modeling programs.

    so far it has been working out ok, the exploded parts tool is cool as hell. I'm using adobe programs to layer and to make things look right (but the second example is 100% done only using Revit). I'm wondering what other workflows are out there. I'd love to see some similar work

    Andy Milburn uses Revit for all kinds of things! He refers to it as "His BIM Pencil" He has one of my favorite Revit blogs: Shades of Grey

    Yes and no. Not to that level of development, but we have use it for coordination of precast wall panels and order of assembly on our drawings.
    Its not a "we can't do it" thing, its a "we're stepping over our legal bounds" thing with means and methods and our contract with the owner.
    Design/Build that works to get that detailed, Design/Bid/Build not so much. This has definitely given me something to think about though.

    Either way, Billiam, those look nice! Good work!

    The displaced option is also very nifty.... Here is a series for a presentation illustrating SIP construction on a project.

    It is great that you are all showing this but how do you create these exploded axons.

    Revit Kid do you have mass families that you use for the arrows in your first post.

    The exploded axons are called "displacement views" in Revit 2014 and 2015 (don't remember if they were 2013... I want to say no) ... Help

    The arrows in my first image are simple extrusions/families I have made.
