Zoom In and Out for Precise Revit Modeling with Ideate Explorer

Zoom In and Out for Precise Revit Modeling with Ideate Explorer

Zooming can be done with conventional Revit methods while Ideate Explorer is up and running but there are some conditions when it will be useful to access the tools from within Ideate Explorer.  Follow these steps for an example of where this is useful:

  1. Open a 3D View in a project.
  2. Set the Display to "Active View"
  3. Set the Filter to <Model>
  4. Select one instance of an element in the project.
  5. Right-click and select “Show Elements” Read: Show Building Elements for Precise Revit Modeling with Ideate Explorer
  6. This will zoom in very close to that element.  If you need to zoom out a little your options are:
    1. Make the View active by touching it and then use Revit zoom tools (mouse, toolbutton, etc.).  The process of making the View active will, however, deselect the items within Explorer.
    2. Use the Zoom tools within Ideate Explorer.  This will permit the selection state to remain unchanged.
