As I spoke about last week, I'm going to be discussing over the coming weeks the improvements that have been made to Revit MEP with our upcoming release of Revit MEP 2009.
I might stray from my stated focus from time to time, but you know it's only for all of your own good....that and the fact that I have a full work/life schedule outside of authoring Inside the System posts and videos for all of you.
I thought I'd get things started with a nice little addition to the Revit Family of products called the View Cube. It's a nice addition to 3D Views in Revit. I find it super useful to quickly rotate my 3D views to a desired orientation. You can go quickly from a SW Iso, to a NE Iso, to an East Elevation in a snap. My Shift+Center Mouse Orbiting skillz are still strong, but this is just another arrow in my 3D View quiver.
As always, I won't just describe this with words, I'll go ahead and use a nifty video. Enjoy.
The View Cube
Note: I tried to get a little fancy today on the 'ole blog and embedded the video to my post. I captured the video like always at 1024x768, so be sure to Right-Click -> Zoom -> Full Screen to see it in all it's glory. Of course you can always just click on this link, but that's not much fun now is it?
