Hi,

I have a kitchen which is furniture system in its own project (t he "kitchen file" ) . This file is linked

into an other file ( "master project" ) . What I need to do is to schedule in which level this kitchen is placed

in the "master project". All I get is which level the kitchen is placed in the "kitchen file"

 

Any ideas if this can be done?

 

Thanks in advance

Christopher

It sounds like you have a master file and you are linking a kitchen file into several locations in the master file. With the linking I don't think it will always list the level at what ever level it was created on in the linked file. What you might try is loading the file as a group. Groups will allow you to schedule the level.

Furniture can also be scheduled to show what room it is in.

Thanks for the answers.I've tried working with groups which work well to some extent. There are probably loads of threads regarding this issue but here's the deal:We work a lot with multi story residential buildings where most of the floor plans look exactly the same and we need to schedule for instance the kitchens on which level they're on and which apartment they're in. Basically what I'm trying to figure out is the best way of working with these types of projects.

 

Linked floor plans vs. groups etc

 

Any ideas or places I could read up on this type of workflow?

 

Thanks in advance

Possible solution found:I thought I share a possible solution, but you probably know this. I never realiezed that you could name linked files and use this information in your schedules.

Example:I have a floor plan which should be identical for 8 floors. I would link this floor (separate file) into

a "master file". The linked file is copied an additional 7 times. For each copy I would go in to its

element properties and type a individual name for each, say "Level 1", "level 2" and so on.

 

I my schedule I would choose to schedule all linked files, and then you can get the name of the linked

file from RVT Links and sort by the name of the linked file

Still sounds like a manual approach. Also you have seen that linked files are really slow down opening. I would stick with groups, if you haven't played with them much they might seem difficult but I think it is the only way to get what you want.

 

I attached a quick sample. I'm not sure what you are trying to schedule but as a group you can schedule what ever you would typically schedule and it will allow for Level sorting. 

 

Forgive the design.. Or lack of design.
