    Default 3-D Section Box Help

    Hello all,

    I'm fairly new to revit and i'm trying to use the section box tool in the properties menu to cut the building in pieces and get a better look.

    I'm in a 3-d view and when i check the box that says "section box", nothing happens. On other projects, when i did this, a purple box would surround the building and i could cut the building as i wished. However, for some reason its not having an effect. I've tried duplicating new 3-d views and creating brand new ones but it doesn't do anything. Any ideas? Any help is appreciated, thanks

    Rob

    The section box has two places to check to turn it on and off: 1) properties of the view, 2) Visibility Graphics/Annotation tab. So, maybe you are turning it on in the view properties, but not the VG.
    No matter how much you adjust your View Range,
    if you have to wear glasses, you will still need to wear glasses.

    The section box is hidden by default now for some reason. If you click the light bulb along the bottom view control bar it will be visible in red as a hidden item.
