This technique, illustrated in my earlier slide presentation, is covered step-by-step in what should become the first of many screencasts. You can use this technique for many purposes, to illustrate the systems which make up a building, to show a detail in 3D, or just to create the traditional “You are here” maps, ubiquitous in the shopping mall world. Hopefully this gives you some new presentation techniques, or if you haven’t used Revit 2010 yet, I’ll help you find the “orient to view” tool. Enjoy.

Update… bear with me while I sort out the volume level.

  • Why is it not possible to tag an exploded view with the conventional tags such as room, description etc, instead you must use only material tag which is nonsensical as in an exploded view sense you usually want to tag a description of what the exploded part is i.e door, window or my case what component of furniture it is.

  • You’re referring to Displacement Sets in 2015?

    I have no idea. That’s just what functions Autodesk offers at the moment. My guess is because the element you wish to tag isn’t really “there”. It’s just a graphic override in the view. Sorry, it’s a crappy answer, although I am sure there is a Revit developer lurking about who might be able to answer it more accurately.
