    Buildup view in 3D for sheets

    Hello,

    How do some companies make sheets where the building is 'begin built' in the corner?
    So for example I have a 10 story building and I have a few sheets where I want the 3D views.
    Sheet 1 shows the first floor (and slabs), sheet 5 shows all till floor 5 and the last sheet shows the whole building.

    So I create an animation of the building when I scroll down in the exported PDFs. Love it when I see that

    I know there are ways to add a single view for each one of them and then hide the elements you don't want to see. Would be great to have an automated version of this.

    Hi Infinite,

    That's a really neat idea, never thought of that. Like a 3D flip-book key-plan of sorts.

    But you'll need a lot of real estate on the page if it's a tall building

    Cool !

    Exactly! Good for the modeler (to check) and for the client (to have an impression).

    I did something similar for a project and we used scope boxes for it.

    You right click on the view cube and chose "orient to view" chose your first floor plan, that will make a section box matching the view extents of your level one, edit view name, repeat for each level

    Marcel, yeah sometimes I use that too, but isn't there way too many manual actions needed for this? I hoped for a more automated version of this.

    Nice method, never used before. But it isn't applicable on 3D views if I'm correct?

    If you got 5 stories it will take you 10 minutes to make and place on your sheets, so no need to automate it imo.

    True, but the projects I work with are often 10+ stories.
    Besides, I don't want to show just 1 complete floor. I want to show the 4D planning, like it's being built.
    Especcialy the concrete build-up order (wall after wall). So yeah: a few sheets for just 1 floor and a lot of floors. Automation would be nice

    If you want automatic 4D view creation in Revit you will need a lot of phases or parameters for you filters. You can automate it all via Dynamo, but i think making the views by hand is easier.

    Maybe you could take a look at Navisworks for nice 4D visualizations?

    Thanks for your input Marcel.
    The projects already have, done while modeling, properties where the phases are correctly shown.
    It's not really "phase" as Revit has, but you can call it "day of pouring the concrete".
    So the only thing I need to do is make an automation/filter/template where the 3D is shown of that specific day, including the days before ofcourse, on the sheet.

    Hope I'm a bit clear.
