We just sent out our 1st Revit project for bids.  I was wondering how you all handle revisions with Revit.  In Autocad, we would make the revisions to the original sheet, in model space (bubble and tag the sheet) but then instead of reissueing the sheet, we make a supplement drawing with the changes.  How would we do this with Revit, use dependent views?

Absolutly do not use dependent views!

Also, do not use bubbles on the sheet.

Do this:

  1. First, read up on and learn how to turn revisions on and off and how to control what shows in a view.  You will never have to delete anything.
  2. Create a new titleblock of appropriate size.  I had two, one 8-1/2 x 11 and one 11x17. These will be special because they will be placed over your normal sheet view and read what sheet number they are on.  They will also have 'shields' to block off only a window of the sheet.
  3. Edit your view, bubble it and tag it.
  4. Now place an appropriate smaller sheet you created over your revised area and adjust its window.
  5. Fill in any additional sheet info you created.
  6. Now you can print to PDF this sheet then delete ithis window sheet and only it.

I will try to find an earlier post where I show all of this.

The overlay seet you should create is this Neenan sheet in this post:  https://forums.augi.com/showthread.php?53492-Better-Revisions-Addendums-8-5x11

It was done in 2007 so there may be some issues with it that you will have to modify to get it to your current Revit issue.  This really works very, very well!

Thanks for the reply WWHub. Two questions

1. What is wrong with using duplicated dependent views? I did this with our current revision. The only issue I see was in the elevation markers since I put the dependent views on a supplemental sheet.  I just hide the ones I didn't want to see on both sheets.

UPDATE: Just found the anwer to this so disregard this question! 2. How do you insert another titleblock in a sheet view?  Not sure my boss will like this process as he doesn't like anything to be deleted. I know we would have the pdf but he still wants to have what we created titleblock and all saved. I have created the two titleblocks we use for supplemental drawings. 

I can see this method working for a revision with just 1 view.  Our first revision is adding 4 views to the sheet.  On the 24x36 sheet the fit all in a row, to get them to fit on our 11x17 sheet I will need to stack them.

Reading all I can on the subject.  Thanks again.

Load the family and ry it ... you just insert it.

If you want a record of the revision other than the PDF, then why not just save the file at that point with a new name?

I suppose you could hide that sheet in that sheet view but this really seems to be stupid.  The PDF is the only thing you ever need because the model changes with every revision and the area in this revision may be totally changed with a future revision.

You really need to get your boss to think this through.  The revised elements and revision markings stay in the set.  The only thing you are deleting is the printing window.  If he started out hand drafting, I bet he issued sketches done by zeroxing a window of a drawing.  I know I did and this is really just that.  A window of the drawing at this point in time.
