I was able to put the front doors in the curtain wall. When I try to create a small perspective

the camera disappears. See the attached files. I have set the visibility settings to show

windows, doors, floors and cielings, but only the ceiling shows. I am able to get a section

view, but obviously I can not render this or can I? I need a small elevation or straight on

perspective I can render. I tried to put even numbers in my dim but I get a error message from

revit that only text and not numbers can be put in. In autocad one can manually input or change

dim lengths/numbers. How can I do this in Revit. I do not want to redo my floor plan.

I appreciate the help from the pro here and I do try to solve my problems. Have a nice day

everyone.

The problem with your camera is that it is set to have a depth clip.  Probably 10' ...?  this means that objects beyond that distance are invisible.  The settings are in the view properties.  You want to turn off depth clipping, or at least set the distance to something like 100'. 

 

Also, if you select your camera's view (by clicking on the border) and then switch to a floor plan, (you may have to right click and say 'show camera in view' or some-such) you can lessen or dramatize the perspective by dragging the length of the camera.  Basically, the vanishing point.

"I am able to get a section view, but obviously I can not render this or can I?" - YES you can, in a 3D view just go to the "View Cube", right click "Orient to a view > Sections and select the section you want to Render.

As for changing your dims, There are two types.  When you select an object, like your wall, there are smaller, temporary dimensions that apear.  You can change these numbers.  The larger dims that you see, however, are not for resizing objects.  In fact, they can be locked, to prevent movement.  You might check--if you select the dims, do they show a close padlock?  If so, click on it to unlock.  This will allow you to move the object by a variety of means...

 

Also the temporary dims are set to objects that Revit assumes you want the dimensions to... like other walls.  But you can grab the blue grips and move the dimension relative to whatever you want, and then input a number.
