I am looking for a more effiicient way to create casework elevations and sections that read well.

When I used Autocad to create casework elevations I was able to put all of them in a model view and make a production line of the elevations, but when I started using Revit I was limited to working on one elevation at a time.I would appreciate hearing from you on the way you approach casework elevations and sections, from text vs keynotes, live sections vs drafted sections, best way to show line weights, best way to box out elevations, best way to tag casework in plans, etc.

"...working on one elevation at a time..."  I sometimes tile these views so I can work across....

"...from text vs keynotes..."  We use both.  Remember, keynotes can be by material, object or user.  Keynotes give more control

"...live sections vs drafted sections..."  I don't know why anyone would draft a section!  Use the live section for at least a background and any model elements you can.  Learn to use "view / cut profile" to modify revit elements rather than filled regions.

 

"...best way to show line weight..."  Embrace the Revit process and forget CAD.  We only have about 10 line weights.  Remember - Revit modifies these per scale so think in relation terms - not pen weight.... Heavy - Medium - Thin ... and variations of those.
