How to create a snapshot


In Rhino you can create a snapshot by using the PO_TakeSnapshot command. You can create a snapshot from the whole model or a selected number of rooms and shades. Use the PO_SnapshotManager command to edit the snapshot information, and open the snapshot in the editor.


In Revit, press the Export Model button and follow the steps for exporting the model. Click on the Snapshot button to create a snapshot from the selected rooms.

You can then click on the Snapshot Manager button to open the model editor.
