- [Instructor] In this video I want to…talk about the view range feature.…Now view range is a setting of floor plans…that determines what portion of the model…will actually be displayed in the view.…Now we spent a lot of time in the previous videos…talking about all the various ways…that you could customize and control the visibility…of elements that are displayed in a view.…But when it comes to floor plans,…we actually should've started with view range,…because, before Revit will even consider…your object styles, your visibility graphics,…your view specific overrides,…it actually considers the view range.…
So if an element falls outside of the view range,…then it won't even bother going to the other settings…to determine how to display it.…It's the view range that determines…if it should display in the first place.…And a real easy way to think about that…is to just look at this floor plan…and imagine what's up on the second floor.…Do you see any of the elements…that are on the second floor in this first floor plan?…
