Hello,

I am using Revit Architecture 2011 and I am tryin to model the wall protection. I am using wall sweeps to do so.

The problem I have is that all the vertical wall protection (the corner posts) are at different lengths to each other. Please see the purple vertical sweeps in the attached.

I need ALL of these in my project to be at 1220mm but they are currently at different lengths. does anyone know a way that I can amend them all in one go? or any other kind of shortcut? The are 423 of them in the project, so going round and dragging each of them to the correct length seems to be a very inefficient way to do it.

Thanks very much for any suggestions,

Kieran

Since you used wall sweeps, you will probably have to edit each one because they are individual elements. 

 

We have a cornerguard family for these applications.  I believe the one I created was instance based but it could have been type based.

Thanks for your reply. Is there a way that I can move all the vertical wall sweeps in a vertical direction? See the purple ones attached. They all need an offset from the floor of 150mm. I don't know how to move them besides physically dragging the bottom of each strip up, which is not very feasible

 

thanks,

kieran

i have found a way

by selecting the vertical sweep and then clicking on isolate category, i see only the wall sweeps. i can then align them all to the correct lengths. i knew there would be a way!

I would have made this as a family.  Its much easier when things like this need to be changed.

i can understand why you would say that, but in this case i believe using a wall sweep is better because it will amend itself as i edit the walls.

and also, there is horizontal wall protection too, which would have been impossible to do with generic models as it comes in all shapes and lengths. so for the vertical wall protection to schedule with the rest, i would need to do it all with wall sweeps

keez,

I think you are mistaken in your last post.  Keep your mind open to other possibilities because there is so much that you can do with this program. 

  • First - a generic template does not mean it has to be a generic family. 
  • A face based (I prefer) or a wall based cornerguard family will move with the wall just like a sweep will. 
  • Length of this element could easily be set as an instance or type based. 
  • If you have more than one profile type, that could be built into the family.
  • And obviously, the family will schedule in any category you place it in.

Keep growing
