We are looking for a product that can help facilitate Digital Red Lining processes with our Revit Models.  We are specifically looking for something that can help us find and list every sheet affected by a single change.  For example, if I change a door in my Revit Model, I would like the software to find every sheet that displays that same door (i.e. plans, RCP, door schedule) so I can make sure all sheets are coordinated after a change.  This would be especially useful during addendum sets.  To your knowledge, is there a plugin that can do this?

Start by looking at the plugins available on the Autodesk website.

From what I know Autodesk Design Review .dwf files is your best option at this time.

I have searched the Product Enhancements on Subscription Center as well as the Exchange Apps.  Mostly I am hoping someone who knows of such a product will see this thread and steer me in the right direction.

You can do some nice stuff with .dwf red lining, however I would like more integration with the Revit software.  Something with a more BIM savy approach that works with the actual data, not just importing the red lines as an overlay.

There is nothing like that out there at this time.  If you want something that will basically make the change as you are marking it up then why not just make the changes right in Revit?

The change would be made in Revit, but we would like to know every sheet that would be affected by moving one or more elements.  It seems like this is something that could be done within the API.  Using the previous example of moving a door.  I would like to select it and see a list of all sheets that display this door.  That way I know every sheet that would need to be clouded in my set before I even move the door.  I would think all you would need is something that scans all sheets and searches for the door by its Object ID. Seems pretty simple.  If this does not exist, and someone takes my idea and makes an app that does this, please just give me a copy of the app for free since you will make a fortune off of it.

Although you might be able to create an app that sorts through every view looking for an element ID, I don't think that would be a useful process.  Revit will make the change in all instances so no coordination problems with that.  The problem will be correcting added 2D elements that refine the model elements.  Those will be in a very few views and good users should be able to ferret those out.

Revit, can...sort of do this already.  Create a text type or keynote text that is all red.  Set a parameter to read the red-liner's initials. Have that user complete the redlining process.  Whether its through keynoting (or other) you should be able to create a schedule that transmits the information to the end user for the changes that HAVE and WILL be taking place.

So you won't be able to use it on schedule sheets, or legends (just anything that is a wall, window, etc...), but you will be able to use it on pretty much everything else.

I'll take a screenshot.  Sorry for the blurring.  Winking

Not exactly what I am trying to do.  But that is pretty slick!

DWF markup does this process much better and you can track who made the cahanges and when in the markup while withing Revit.

WWHub is correct, there are better programs out there.  I was simply mentioning that you could track who made the changes by simply putting your initials after the note (also could include a date/timestamp).

However, you could also create a "start up page" in your Revit model that tracks these changes AND every time ANYONE opens the model it defaults to that "start up page" first, creating the ability to notify users of the tasks that

A) are completed

B) need to be completed

C) when they were issued and by who

D) gives them a list of things to do for the day

All locally within Revit...

This accomplishes another task... which is assignment of work to team members WITHOUT having to take another step to inform them.  also, everytime they open the file AND Person X can see what task Person Y is doing once they open the revit (collaboration) model.  Winking  Whoops, I left off the "Date stamp" on the schedule.  Cryingsee attached)
