I am doing my first set of construction documents in Revit and I have come to the cover sheet. Is there a way to make a cover sheet with a list of of the drawings on it as they are listed under the sheets catefory in the project browser. I would like it if the list updated itself when the sheet names and numbers are changed but I am not sure if this is possible. I am also making a separate titleblock for the cover sheet? Does anyone have any other/better suggestions on how to set this up. Thank you ahead of time for your suggestions and help.

Remember, Revit is a database so everything can be scheduled. Go to "view" "new" "drawing list" and develop a sheet schedule. Remember that everything in Revit has properties as well, so under the properties of each sheet is a check box ti indicate whether a sheet should appear in the sheet schedule. You can also sort and group on fields in the sheet schedule like any other Revit schedule. As for the cover sheet, we just use a regular titleblock the same as any other sheet. Of course yu can use whatever practice you want to though. The most important thing is to develop a good template that holds all of you schedule formats, dimension styles, text styles etc. so they don't have to be re-created in every project or go find them in another and cut and paste. We like to do a 3D view of the building in hidden line on the cover sheet and have also started using what we call coordination views in 3D to more effectively communicate the design of the building to the contractor. The change I am trying to make in the office is to get people to realize that our deliverable is the building not a drawing set. HTH Tom Post edited on 2005-08-30 16:23:40
