We have seen some new features and enhancements in Revit 2015. Let’s continue to review some more features.
Show hidden lines
In Revit 2015, we can set 3D view to show hidden lines. You can set “Show Hidden Lines” option to show it by discipline or set to All. If you set it to All, then it will ignore the discipline you selected.
In older release you can only set hidden lines in 2D views, and it will depends on the view discipline.
To support this, now Revit has additional Hidden Lines sub category below these categories:
- Structural connections.
- Structural rebar
- Structural stiffeners
Revisions have several nice enhancements. You will like them when you work with revisions.
In older version, you only get draw lines to draw revision cloud.
In Revit 2015, you get more tools. This allows you to draw revision cloud easier.
In Revit 2015 revision dialog box, you will find delete button and arc length option. Yes, now you can delete revisions. And the arc length option controls minimum length for all revision cloud. Including existing revision cloud.
