Has anyone fgured out a way to place room tags in a room that's been demolished.  It seems that room tags are created to only identify with existing and new walls and that they can't be given a specific phase.

I FOUND ONE THREAD THAT SAID TO DUPLICATE THE DEMO PLAN VIEW, SET ITS PHASE TO EXISTING, TURN OFF EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE ROOM TAGS, AND OVERLAY THE TAGS OVER THE DEMO PLAN

Understanding Rooms:

If any element that would change the parameters of a room (demo or new wall, new door, square-foot change, etc) were to change, the room information would become unstable so the room cannot extend beyond the static phase that it was placed in. If you think about it, every component in Revit is static, but with doors, walls, windows, or any other component, they are placed within a phase and remain unchanged until they are demolished. Any change between phases that would alter the static nature of a room (see above) would destabilize the room.

 

Setting up a Demo view in Revit 2022:

It is a workaround but the best I've found so far & it works in one view, rather than with multiple layered views:

 

1. Create a view of the existing phase with the phase filter set to Previous & New.

2. In Visibility/Graphics Overrides (In your view template if you will have multiple demo views), go to the Filters tab. At the bottom, click on the box Edit/New to modify document filters.

3. Create a new Rule-based Filter for each new construction phase of your project, calling it Demolition, or Demolition-Phase 1... (Make sure you have the new Filter set to Define rules).

4. Check every category that you may have items to demolish. (Some categories can't be added because they aren't phase specific)

5. Filter Rules: AND (All rules must be true), All Selected..., Phase Demolished, equals, Phase 1 (or whatever phase you are setting the filter for). Apply/OK.

6. Back at the Filters tab, Add your Demolition filter. Set your overrides in Project/Surface & Cut to show all of your demo items correctly in the view.

 

Remember: You will want to create a view template set for each phase & view type needed. Each view will be set to the existing or previous phase, allowing the correct rooms to show.
