Greetings all,

 

I'm new to design options and I was wondering if I'm overlooking something.  I'm trying to set up a Tenant Improvement Plan with two options.  Each option has different walls that are demolished or partly demolished and it seems Revit will not allow me to demolish existing walls within the option?  Am I missing something here??  Or is it better to do this with two separate files?

 

 Thanks,

 

 Mike

You should be able to do this in the project.  We have 3 phases in our firm, Existing then Demo then New Construction.  Try this step by step see if you can get it to work.

 

Create two or more design Options

Select the existing walls and other objects in the existing phase that will be edited.  Using the green plus icon "Add to Design Option Set" and add your existing walls to all of the options.

Go to the Demo phase and activate the first design option.  Demo and make the changes that you think you need.

Finally go to the New Construction Phase and draw in the alterations.

Rinse and repeat in another Design Set.

 

Now you should be able to have one existing that looks the same in each option and a different demo and new construction for each.

 

Good Luck!

"Create two or more design Options

Select the existing walls and other objects in the existing phase that will be edited.  "

hi, I have spent a bit time studying design options. Here is one of my observation/comment which I would like you to confirm:

as long as a object (wall, door, floor...) is affected no matter by one option or more, it should be "Add to set". Is this correct?

Only objects that are new, demolished or that host objects new or demolished need to be in an option.  Affected is a bad term because wall joins could be considered affected.   Option set walls will alter base walls at join conditions.
