1.5 CES LUs

Revit software gives you a dizzying array of sophisticated options to display or hide elements within the Building Information Model that are based on intelligent parameters or properties of the element or view settings. Every element has a category, phase, discipline, or workset that can impact whether that element displays within a selected view. In addition, scope boxes, crop regions, and view ranges may also impact the display of Revit model or annotation elements. And, view templates and many view settings can also drive element visibility. In fact, there are at least 50 different ways to hide an element in Revit.

Attend this Revit User Group to learn about Ideate Software’s powerful arsenal of forensic tools that will help you understand why an element doesn’t display as expected, and how to fix the issue.
