21. The clip plane that is at the side of the view farthest from the start point of an elevation view - a section view - a 3D view - or a walkthrough view. In the following floor plan - the green dotted line opposite the blue line represents the ______ f
Far clip plane
22. A joint at a 45-degree angle - or evenly angled between the joined elements. ______ can apply to walls - wall sweeps - railings - structural floors - roof fascia - curtain wall mullions - and other model elements. When 2 walls join - you can edit the
23. A view-specific element that shows the size of an element or shows distances between elements or points in a building model. As you place an element - Revit Architecture displays temporary ______ so that you can place the element accurately. You can
24. The calculated adjustment in beam geometry that ensures beam ends meet without overlaying one another at a join. This is the visible gap seen in a steel beam connection within the Revit project.
25. The thickness of a line. You can specify the ______ as part of the line style for model lines - perspective lines - and annotation lines used in Revit Architecture. To define line weights - click Manage tab > Settings panel > ______.
Cut Line Style
26. A vertical plane in a wall that is used for dimensioning. You create a wall by sketching the ______ of the wall in a plan view or a 3D view. You specify what to use for the ______ in the element properties of the wall: the wall centerline - core cent
27. An intersection of 2 or more walls. In Revit Architecture - you can specify the type of join between walls.
28. A series of dashes or dots alternating with blank spaces. In the building industry - construction documents often use different line style conventions to convey information and to differentiate one line from another. For example - dimensions may use
29. A fixed starting point - or the point in a coordinate system where the axes intersect. In Revit Architecture - you use an ______ for many functions - such as positioning a linked project - creating a custom fill pattern - positioning a group - resizi
