Revit 2013

I would like to prepare a set of Building elevations which shown each window type in a different colour. Was wandering whether there is a way of doing this similar to Colour Scheme with floor plans?

Any help would be appreciated!

I would simply add a color fill in the elevation view.  Why complicate this with model properties?

Theres 1300 windows on the project!!!

I suspose I could added the colour fill in to the family and control the visiblity of the Colour Fill via the Visibility Graphics, but that would mean having to update around 35 window families.

Any other bright ideas?

We learned a long time ago that Revit demands you think ahead.

 

Are your families all contolled by type?  If so then you can edit the family and create a unique glass material for every type  and control that.  You can't add a filled region directly to a model family but you can nest in a detail family and that can have a filled region.  How you control what filled region type might be a problem - I've never done it.

 

In the project, a model window and detail element could have been grouped but you obviously can't do that now.

 

Good luck.

You can over-ride graphics in view by element (pattern - solid fill and color) and this does work but you have to do that one at a time.

I tried setting up a filter for the view - windows - that works for lines and transparency but it does not work for pattern.

Thinking about this while working.....

Unless your model is totally crazy, doing filled regios is still the easiest process.  If windows are the same by floor, isolate the category in view, create a region one type for one window on one floor, copy that singularly or in pairs across the floor, do the same for other types on the same level, copy all of the rgios on that level and paste on appropriate levels.   Probably just a few minutes to do all.

How many window types have you? If not too many I'd create a filter for each type and control the surface pattern colour using VG.
