I am a new user of Revit 5.1 and have just tried mirroring my house model with a disapointing result. Door and window tag numbers changed as if there were two projects. Not all elements were able to be reversed i.e. roof, wall sweeps etc. Generally it was messy. Some dimensions deleted. Is this the way it is with Revit or is there a better result to look forward too? Can someone respond please.

Mirroring a model is not well addressed in Revit. If you have need to mirror the house to achieve a terraced house arrangement then you could save your model under a different name, then link it back in to Revit. Linked models mirror well and are useful for doing campus sites etc.

We are a project home building company and mirroring is an important function to us as every design has to have a mirrored version. So Are there any home building designers out there that deal with this issue using Revit. I would be keen to hear of your approach.

I HAVN'T HAD ANY LUCK WITH THIS EIHTER. WHAT I HAVE BEEN TOLD IS TO MAKE ALL YOUR SUGESTIONS ABOUT IMPROVEMANTS TO REVIT TO AUTODESK. THEN IF THEY GET ENOUGH FEED BACK ABOUT THE SAME ISSUE, THEY WILL THEN WORK ON IT FOR A FUTURE RELEASE. JUST LAST WEEK I THOUGHT I HAD FIGURED A WORK AROUND FOR THIS THRU PRINTING OPTIONS, BUT I TRIED TO RECREATE IT THIS MORNING AND HAD NO LUCK. IF I CAN FIGURE OUT WHAT I DID I WILL POST HOW I DID IT. BUT FOR NOW IT LOOKS LIKE WE CAN'T DO IT AND I THINK THIS IS GOING TO BE AN ISSUE FOR ANY RESIDENTIAL TYPE FIRM WHERE HOMES OR APARTMENTS NEED TO BE FLIPPED DUE TO LOT CONDITONS.

We are a project Home builder as well as we have (not so recently) addressed this issue. IT sucks. Plain and simple although there are some short cuts. -forget about/delete your dimensions -establish a mirroring plane using a Reference plane -use 3d wireframe and select all objects (will not include dimentions or text or detail line etc.) -in plan, mirror (without copy) -in each view go thru and mirror over all your text/detail marks lines etc using the Mirror reference plane I doubt it will, but I sincerely hhope this helps. Currently it takes us (2.5yrs with Revit) about a day to mirror a house (1500-2500sqft)
