I have been trying all sorts of different ways to try and do a section perspective, but have not yet been able to produce one in revit. Does anyone know how? It may be so simple to do that i have just overlooked it.

Create your perspective where you want it. Go to view properties. Tick Section Box. Click Okay. Then adjust the boundaries of the sections box to give the desired section. HTH.

or... create a section where you want. go 3D view go- view-orient--to other view... and pick your section from the list. this is very handy to sometimes have a better understanding of your section.

when i tick on the section box, nothing appears in the view. i have checked camera angles etc . and it seems the view should work but does not. orienting the 3d view produces an orthographic view, and i am looking for a perspective view.

When your section box is active, only what is inside of it is visible. If section box is checked on you get a 3D box which you can resize by dragging its sides. You can also grab the rotate icon on one of the corners of the box to rotate it to an angle you want. So resize your box and rotate it to cut through where you want the 3D section in your project. If it is turned in the view properties your section box cannot be made invisible by your visibility settings, but can be temporarily hide isolated. If you cant see the box, zoom out and reset your temporary hide isolate. It is there somewhere. (Make sure you click section box and not crop region, very different things) Cheers!

i know what the section box is, i have used it in the 3d view before, however i have never been able to see it in any camera perspective views. when i tick on the section box option, everything dissapears except for decals. it makes no sense to me... usually in 3d decals always appear even if they are outside the section box. this makes me think i am somehow zoomed away from the section box. but it is a camera view and i cant get it to see any section box if there even is one.

The section box will automatically size itself to incorporate the entire model. If you have spaced out stuff, it might be an idea to create a perspective looking at the entire model, turn the section box on, then use dynamically modify view (walkthrough tab), to then walk to where you want to see (after adjusting the section box of course). HTH.
