. You can see from the above image that I have tagged the Rooms and given each room a distinct name. Should this happen, the incorrect Area Boundary Lines should be deleted and drawn manually. Creating a new area scheme for each desired options becomes a viable solution. Create area schemes before creating area plans. But if that where the case you couldn't schedule the areas, because the areas would not exist beyond the view itself. If you have found it difficult to capture the intricacies of area calculations in your Revit projects—or have only tried to do so using the room elements—then you owe it to yourself to give area elements a try.
I have look at the area tag and it provides no template for creating an area tag. This is because the second window is physically higher than the Cut Plane, as set in the View Range properties for this particular plan view. For example, if you want a schedule with walls that are at least 1000mm long, add a « is greater than or equal » Length filter. This is exactly where we use a Plan Region. I go into a lot more detail than you'll find here at Revit Zone.
This takes us to here…………. Create shared parameters for your units and create a unit tag room tag. For conceptual phase however, I can see us benefitting from using rooms and floor plans. You can have an area plan for each area scheme and level. Our high level window appears alongside the low level one.
So thinking about it, I don't see the benefit of using Floor plans for my plan drawings when I can use area plans instead. . I really appreciate your response to this thread. . Areas appear very similar to rooms, but they're separate elements with a unique purpose and workflow. I suppose I could create a shared parameter for each of those bits of data, however I would have to manually fill those fields in hundreds of units.
This is where the area object is created. Just enjoy the course and drop me line if you found it useful. The course is 100% free with no catches or exclusions. For example, your site schedule may have two areas, the site area and the building footprint. So, to actually select the area, what you do is just kind of move your mouse around the screen a little bit, and usually you could start by the tag, and it's a pretty good chance that the tag is centered on the area object itself. We mostly work on multi-unit residential projects so we like to stick to area plans so we could use both areas and rooms during documentation. If you select more than one level, Revit creates a separate area plan for each level and groups them by area scheme in the Project Browser.
Step 12, Modify area boundaries, p 195 is where I get lost. We can base our Color Scheme on any of these parameters, or indeed add our own custom parameters to the Room category. The area seperation line is added along the vertical wall steps 15-19 and again redefines the area that was originally created to the upper left corner of the building. . . I can't help with the language Is there a Greek version? Any problems, please ask on our Forums and we can take you through it.
Just seems very odd to me at least that the Area Boundary lines would show on both views. It further states that there are 2 Area Types for Cross and 6 Area Types for Rentable. I see some people use area plans as an underlay to regular plans, however if all I need is to show the area numbers, and the area names, why go to the trouble of having two drawings. Calculating the area of a room or building is one shortcut that Autodesk built into Revit. From the Home tag - under the area dropdown, pick area plan and create what you need automatically or by sketching. By default, the area plan name indicates the level associated with the plan.
Is there any reason not to? But before you set to sketching every boundary like we do have you tried flipping the wall construction layers of your wall, or even the wall-centreline properties, to see if it generates the lines any different? Use gridlines in Appearance menu to select that. However, having multiple options in the project would increase quite considerably the amount of area schemes as well. Just seems very odd to me at least that the Area Boundary lines would show on both views. And using parameters in those areas or even in rooms is the easiest to group into sections of the area schedule. You can't use it for everything, in fact, Departments are about the only useful parameter, but you can build up a list for your own Shared parameters. It would be good, yes, but this is a limitation of the software.
