On a recent visit to an Architectural practice, I noticed that all section and elevation views were being sent out for presentation using Hidden Lines in black and white only. After a little discussion, they just didn’t realise they could produce excellent results using Revit. We looked at different ways to give a view some impact, below are just a few examples you can achieve easily by accessing Graphic Display Options.
Select Visual Styles on your View Control Bar, then Graphic Display Options:
Using the Style and background can give you excellent colour options for presentation:
Standard Hidden Lines view – Black and White:
Same view, Shaded with Sky background:
Same view, Shaded with Gradient background:
So get creative and use colour for impact.
