Linked Model - Linked Views?
Revit Forum
by pipand
5d ago
Does anyone know of a way to link views from a linked model? I'm working on a project that shows the same building in several locations. Each location needs its own set of drawings. We've created model files for each location and one file that holds the actual 3D information (the prototype model). The prototype model is linked into each location file, where the sheets are set up. We'd like to set up and annotate the views in the prototype model and then place them on sheets in the location models, that way we only do the set up once and the views are consistent. Is this possible? Or is there ..read more

Non-Plotting Detail Lines
Revit Forum

Hi everyone. Does anyone know how to create a type of detail line that does not appear when plotting in Revit? I ask because I want to use it only for dimensioning. If I hide the line, the dimension is hidden as well. I know a reference plane can do this, but it would be a problem since it appears on every level and section of the project. I know you can adjust that, but it would be such a manual process that it is not worth it. Any help is appreciated ..read more

Subcategories

I mentioned subcategories in this thread https://www.revitforum.org/forum/rev...an-but-not-rcp and it seems some people like them and some dont. so i was wondering if it was worth a bit of a discussion / brain dump as to what people use them for and whether that's a good idea. We use them a lot and create custom categories so that we can control line styles / weights within view templates, easily turn off sub categories without having to turn off the whole category and also to assign materials across multiple families. I'm not actually sure how or why we ended up doing this workflow but im ..read more

How to create a Workset for text or "markup annotations" only?
Revit Forum
by katewood1989
1w ago
I am not very familiar with Worksets. I am trying to create a Workset that only contains text for the purpose of guiding drafters. For example, the text is red and has directives on it, like a redline / markup would. Rather than marking up a PDF, I think it would be easier to have it right in Revit, and set it as a Workset so it can be turned on and off. I have created the Workset, and made it visible in all view for now. Then from there, I create a text, and when I select the text, I cannot assign a Workset to it. Under Properties > Identity Data, the "Workset" category is greyed out. Can ..read more

I've demolished my home office and a new one is being built but moving out after 30 years in the same room, shifting internet and equipment around takes about 10 times longer than you might think. I pity anyone who has been part of a large office move as just moving me, even temporarily, has been exhausting One good thing about a temporary move to our 1st floor is that I have to go up and down the stairs at least 20 times a day ..read more

Printing perspective views to PDF - Surface patterns don't show up in certain areas.
Revit Forum

I have roofs with a surface pattern applied to them, and when I print a perspective view to PDF, it does not show up in some areas. I also have some areas with a stone pattern base that don't show up. Any ideas? See images. The first one shows what it looks like in Revit, which is how I want it to look. And the second image shows the issue I have when I print it to a PDF ..read more

Steepening the roof slope results in error message "Can't make footprint roof"
Revit Forum
by katewood1989
2w ago
I don't understand this error. I am literally changing the roof slope from 5/12 to 6/12. This error drives me insane and I see no good reason why the roof shouldn't be able to be created after changing the slope slightly. It's a simple gable roof. Drives me crazy. Why are roofs so difficult for Revit (or for me). Why can't this program be more specific as to WHY this is not able to be done ..read more

Scheduling Nested Component
Revit Forum

Hello, I know there are dozens of posts on the internet about scheduling nested components, but I feel like they all stop short of what I'm wanting (or it's just not explained well enough. I have a door with nested panels/frames/hardware. In the revit project, I want to be able to show what panel/frame/hardware is active in the scheduled door. Because Revit favors pushing data/parameters into nested families and not visa/versa, I'm at a bit of a standstill. I made a custom shared parameter in the panel family with the panel type (P1, P2, P3), but I can't seem to figure out how to grab that s ..read more
