Hi all,

 I'm hoping to get some feedback on my latest revit challengeSmile We created a seperate FF &E file for our furniture layouts and linked in our main building file to show as a background. what's a little tricky is that we have some fixed furniture that is being kept in the main building file and while all unfixed furniture is in the FF & E file.  I'm now working on the furniture schedule and I discovered how to show the furniture from both files in the schedule, but, while the fixed furniture associates to the room objects in the main file, the loose furniture in the FF & E file does not.  I would like to organize the schedule by room.  Is there a way to get unfixed furniture to associate to the rooms in the linked file? 

 Thanks! I hope that wasn't too confusing...

We have the same questions here in our office. Have you had any response or success in finding any answers?

No we never did.  Not too long after I made that post, we decided to abandon the strategy of having a separate model for furniture. Instead we kept all furniture in the main model but put it on an FF&E work set so it could be turned off by view. In the end that worked fine. Hope that helps!

You can schedule linked file objects - just can't tag the darned things!

 

In your schedule - check the little box - incude linked file items ... or something like that.

I have run across the same issue, even checking the schedule from the linked file does not seem to pull the room information. The only thing I have found is to add a parameter that would allow you to type in the room name in the new project file. Cumbersome, but it works. Not sure why checking the parameter of pulling from the linked in file does not work...

Correction - You can schedule linked rooms. 

 

But a linked file room can not schedule that it has elements from the host file.  In otherwords, just like doors and windows, the host (in this case a room) has to be in the same file for the two to be associated.
