Is there any way to create a 3d view for say the first floor without seeing the 2nd and 3rd floor above. In other words is there any way to hide the entire 2nd and 3rd floor above it.

In your 3D view, open View Properties, turn on the section box, then adjust the box in that view.

Another way is to orient your 3D view to another view.  To do so go to the 3D view, in 2010 and later right click on the 3D view cube, select "Orient to View", choose the floor plans and select your first floor.

This will automatically place the section box in the 3D view sized to the crop boundry of your floor plan in the x,y direction and for the z it will work with the view range you set for the plan with respect to top and bottom.  This is where the top of a floor plan cut range starts to make sense.  By default it is set to 7'-6", but I set it to level above with a negative offset that removes the thickness of the floor above out of the view.

 

You can also use the orient to view with, sections, callouts, elevations.  My theory is that most Revit users are severely lacking in 3D views for their project.  I would expect a 100,000 SF building to have 100's of 3D views.  Some would be 3D details for the documentation set, others would be used for you the modeler to understand and model efficiently.

Thanks coreed.  Got lots of time to hang around here since I got laid off from Autodesk at the end of February.  At least the questions keep me focused on Revit and in the game while I look for a new job.

I've been to a lot of different firms over the past three years, and the lack of view created on most projects is clearly a problem.  Too many people think that the view only exists to be part of the CD set.  My rule of thumb is at least one additional "working" view for every printed view.  Also, we are in a 3D world in Revit so why not make that part of your CD set?
