I recently required a method or tool that could strip the Revit model from everything except what is visible in the current view. I was aware of an add-in that could do just this, but was unable to find it anywhere.

That's when I came across this handy tip:

1. Create a 3D view, using filters and model category visibility to display only the elements that you want to share

2. Create a new Sheet using "None" as the titleblock

3. Drag the 3D view onto the blank sheet

4. Right-Click on the Sheet and choose "Save to New File", and specify a destination path for the new stripped model

Done!

I hope you find this as useful as I have.
