hi all

here is another challenge-

1/we need to reduce room dimenions on the marketing plans so that we cover our behinds when it comes to inaccuracies when the building is handed over to buyers- this is usually done in Autocad with a -5 alteration to all room dimensions, however we can't do this with REVIT in the case of chaging dimenion's text.

any ideas?

i thought of adding a 2,5cm plaster layer to walls and dimensions this- howevr this doesnt always work out to favour the idea in concept!!!

basically: is there a way of creating a formula that will redice the indiacted dimenions?

2/ is there a way to have automatic length and width of rooms tag???

glad to challenge you all...

E

The dimensions in Revit are what you drew them as, there is not formula or faking it.  I don't understand your second question on automatic length and width of room tags

You can add a very small line inside your wall and dimension to that.

We have multiple room tag types that have different text size/width for use in smaller spaces.

the idea is to avoid having to add the extra line- or extra plaster thickness so that it doesn't show up on marketing plans. the 5cm reduced dimension is used in our market to avoid handing over a unit that is too smal - this was we already have a tolernce that reduced our planning by a fiuxed dimension,

 

for example, a 4X3 room may indate rather 2.95X3.95 on contract drawings and thus, we give ourselves a tolerance in case that built size diviates from orinial plans

 

my only method was to add the additional plaster thickness, and make it whie in cut lines, but was causeing problems later

I would think that a note giving acceptable tolerances is a far better solution to an inaccurate dimension.
