When copying an object how do you maintain the "phase demolished" properties.

I am aware what ever phase your view is set to anything copied is reverted to it or kept the same but it always changed the "phase demolished" property to none.

Example: My phase filter is set to Existing construction, my objects phase properties are "phase created: existing" & "phase demolitshed: demolition" then when I copy the object it keeps "phase created: existing" but changes "phase demolished: none"

Anyone got any ideas?

Sorry but that is the way Revit works.   We have learned that there is no such phase as demolished.   Demolish is an activity in a phase and that should be new.  You can work in a phase so anything new will be in that phase. When you copy these item, immediately look at their properties and reset them to be demolished in the appropriate phase.


You have to think differently about Revit phases than we normally do.  The first rule to understant is basically, there are only two 'phases', existing and new.  We are really talking about visibility here, not our conventional project phasing.

  • EXISTING - exactly what it says - something that is there when you start (something in a previous phase)
  • NEW - What is added or changed.
  • You can have as many NEW phases as you want but each time you switch to a new phase, all previous items are now existing.

So consequently, there is never any activity in existing phase.  You only really demo in the new phase and you only build in a new phase.  If you want to demo in a phase called demo, then fine - but it will be a new phase at the beginning with all existing items being in the original 'EXISTING' phase.  Then you can create something like Phase I where everything preceeding is 'previous' in phase filter settings which in this case would be your original existing and your demo.


You can still have a 'phase' called demo but no need.  If you create in Existing and demo in new, a view setting of new phase/show previos + demo will work for your 'demo phase' and a setting of new phase/show previous + new works for your new items without demo.

When I copy an "existing" element it reverts back to "new construction."
