- [Instructor] You're going to run into…many situations when you're working in Revit…where you have to decide whether or not…something should be modeled or not.…Now if you watched the previous video on reveals,…and you're working on a brick building,…then you might be tempted to say,…well reveal is the solution then for any…brick detailing, including things…like control joints and so on.…And while that's technically correct,…a reveal can accurately represent those kinds of things,…it may not always be the best choice for the job.…So I've got a view here called reveal,…and I've got two different examples of a reveal…to kind of illustrate my point.…
So right here we have a larger reveal, this is…a brick reveal and it's the width of an actual brick.…So that might be some sort of an architectural detail…that we want to emphasize on the facade of the building.…There I think that would be an appropriate…use of the reveal tool, because we really do…need to kind of see that we're creating that…level of detail on the facade.…
