Hello everybody!

 

I'm a French interior architect (excuse my English Winking ), working in Sweden mainly as a BIM Manager now, and I'm presently working on a refurbishment project of a school, so I'm working a lot with the existing and new phases in Revit.

However, I get stuck about a thing and didn't find any solution yet so I ask for your help, in case of somebody has the answer...

 

In the project is a waste room (it's a small building independant of the others) that we need to move approximately 3 meters to the North and 4 meters to the East.

We use 3 phases on this project: Existing, Demolition and New.

So I've drawn that waste room in Existing phase and make it demolished in the Demolition phase. Then I've drawn it again in the New phase. The thing is that as this waste room is composed only by new elements, it appears as a new building on my drawing (filled with stripes, when existing elements that we keep remain normal), and my boss would like it to appears as an existing building as we are just moving it. I guess I can still use the Override/Graphics in view to change its appareance on the drawings, but I was looking for a smarter way if one was existing.

Does someone knows if Revit has a tool for that kind of operation?

 

Thank you!

Mélia

hello melia85

why not just copy the building in question to the new location, so you have effectively 2 buildings.

then set one to be visible in existing phase , and the copy to be visible in new phase (showing existing and new) etc.

i.e. when 1 is visible, the other isnt.

cheers

Thank you for your answer mansell5, but I'm not sure I got what you meant. I guess I'm not really clear neither.

When you say "set one to be visible in existing phase , and the copy to be visible in new phase" are you talking about using the phasing tool? Because if I do that I think it will be the same result as before don't you think? Or do you know another way of managing phases?

 

[To be more clear I attach a file of that project: on the right that's the new phase and on the left that's the existing phase. The highlited slab is the one of the wasteroom once it has been moved (copy-pasted on existing phase as you said). The other one is demolished on the demolition phase.]
