- In this video we're going to look at some of the…opening elements that Revit has available.…So, there are five of these and…you can find them on the architecture tab.…And, in this video we're going to talk about two of them.…The shaft opening, and the dormer opening,…and I encourage you to explore the other three on your own.…So, let me start with the shaft opening,…and I'm going to zoom in a little bit here in the section view…to kind of talk about the problem that I want to try…and solve with the shaft opening.…So, I've got an elevator here,…but as you can see, the floor elements here,…and here, and here are passing…right through that elevator shaft.…
So, that's a little bit of a problem.…So, there's two ways I could solve this issue.…One, would be editing the sketch of the floor.…So, I've got the second floor selected here,…and I'll do edit boundary,…and because I'm in a section view I can't…edit the sketch from section.…It wants me to edit in a floor plan,…so it'll prompt me to open a floor plan.…So, I'll do level two, and I'll open that view.…
