Hi All,

We run Revit 2009 currently. This issue is related to a set of shop drawings for a project we are building using shipping containers. I will have an identical set of views - including 3D Iso views - for 35 separate shipping containers and the modifications we are making to each one.

Can anyone advise on how to set up sheet/view templates such that I can easily ensure that each of the drawing sheets or portions of drawing sheet that deal with a particular container has the same exact views as all the others? The idea would be to do this within one model, as opposed to 35 separate revit files. Should I be positioning cameras with reference lines off of each container to keep it consistent?

Thanks everyone - I did search to see if I could find help on this in previous posts.

The elevation/plan/section views should be easy because you can align those.  The 3D view may be a little tougher but once placed, you can verify their properties are the same for height of camera and target.

 

You could have 35 design options....ouch... I don't like that ... you would need 35 duplicate views to place on sheets.

 

Why don't you want 35 models?  This is really the easiest way.

WWhub -

You are definietly right. I'm going to go with separate models get them perfectly set up then just change the family type to the new container (each container is a type). This will also help with labeling of the sheets etc. Work smart not hard.

The only thing that remains to be overcome is that we are scheduling all the openings with a dedicated schedule for each container. I would then like to have a master schedule with all openings in the set. Is there any better way to do this then to just take all 35 separate completed container models, drop them into one sheet and run the custom schedule?

Thanks again - hugely helpful,

StackDB

 - I meant drop them into one Revit file, not sheet - sorry.
