Callout View

A callout view is used to display an enlarged view of a part of a building model. This view is important for detailing. Creating callout view is a common practice amongst engineers as it helps them to view the project more precisely and with a higher detail. In an architectural project, callout is used to show details of the basic building elements in a model. You can create callout in plan view or in elevation view. Note that, the callout tag added to these views will be linked to the callout view.

Callout Created Using Rectangle Tool

As you are aware callout view is used to give a detailed description about section of a model around which it is drawn. To create a rectangular callout view, invoke the Rectangle tool from the Callout drop-down in the Create panel; the Modify | Callout tab will be displayed. In the Properties Palette, the Type Selector drop-down list displays the type of callout view to be generated.

Callout Created Using Sketch Path Tool

In Autodesk Revit, you can create a customized callout view by using the draw tools. To do so, invoke the Sketch Path tool from the Create panel of the View tab; the Modify | Edit Profile tab will be displayed. In the Draw panel of this tab, the Line tool is selected by default. You can also select other sketching tools to create a callout of desired type. Next, choose the Finish Edit Mode button to exit the Modify | Edit Profile tab. In the Properties Palette, the Type Selector drop-down list displays the type of callout view to be generated.
