Hey Guys

Creating a landscape plan for the first time in revit for a project. Wanted to avoid using autocad which had been used for previous projects to prevent having to change between programs when the design changed

 

Dont want to have 3d trees as it only has to be shown in 2d. So been drawing up some 2d plants with detail lines and creating group but makes the page lag to the point where its to slow to work

Any ideas on what tools to use for this ?

Will be around 2000 plants

 

thanks

You say plan - so obviously, you mean only plan elements.  There are 2D plan families here on this site and elsewhere that are parametric.  Look for those.

Yer just wanted 2d elements, ended up just using detail lines and creating groups for each plant, just when u have 6,000 plants to a page it got way to slow and ended up been quicker concerting to autocad, 

Any other ideas of how i make things quicker?

Groups were a bad idea.  Families would have been far better. ....Learn from the experience.

Instead of just making detail lines into groups creating 6,000 groups which is bad practice you could just create a detail component family for your plants and load it into the project.   

 

WWHub beat me to the answer!  Also using families you can set a workest to turn them off and on if not needed to improve performance.

thanks for the reply,

Yer i tried using the families at that start and found it wasnt as smooth as using autocad, Was just easier to convert to autocad and do it all there as everything had been set up from previous jobs,

 

Will give it another go for the next job as i prefer using revit, all just a bit of trail and error atm to see whats the most efficient way to work
