Greetings,

 

I am trying to show some colour blocked areas on my GA plan in Revit 2013. Effectively all I want to do is divide the floor plan into squares and give them a colour block each.

(The Autocad equivalent would be to draw a rectangle, and colour hatch it).

I would like the defining elements to be lines that I draw, as opposed to walls/boundaries etc. I have been experimenting with the Areas plan functionality but am not having any luck, any suggestions?

Many thanks,

CM.

Additional:

 

I have managed by using the 'Filled Region' tool. If there is a way that this can be done using the Areas tool I could then benefit from area calcs and area names etc.

Many thanks,

CM.

Simple, do the area plans and don't allow Revit to do the linework - you draw the area boundry.

Did you use WWHubs answer? Beacuse he is correct, you can draw boundary lines creating whatever boundary yo want.

Hi,

 

Yes I did and he is right; I have now also used his method to get the areas on plan. They have titles and the areas calculated, However I haven't been able to individually colour each area as you can with the 'region fill' tool.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks,

CM.

On the annotate tab in the Color Fill tab there is a Color Fill Legend.  You can change your areas to whatever you want in there.
