I'm interested to see if anyone here has worked with creating CD's (construction documents) and schedules with interior design packages. And if so, reply back please! I'm having some trouble getting the schedules to work out and some other things. Our focus is healthcare so interior packages are intense and have alot of information. THANKS in advance!

I've done some fairly basic finish schedules in Revit (small office and classroom buildings mostly) and it was fine... what sort of trouble have you been having? I find that even with a simple project, I add a lot of my own parameters (for instance, North Wall, East Wall, etc., rather than just Wall as is provided)...

I am having the same problems when creating finish schedules for restaurant interiors. Some items do not need to be parametric in design. Just scheduled or annotated. We have created basic schedules that are per component/families, but sometimes there is a need to be more specific when it comes to millwork and other such items. For example, if you tag a wall not everything can be listed that is associated with that item. Ex: What if you have a wall with base, crown molding, and chair rail? How do you tag all 3 items in finish schedule? attached is an example of a small project done using autocad but not able to duplicate using Revit yet.

I couldn't open your finish schedule, so I'm not sure how you arranged it, but we usually have different columsn for wall finish, base, trim, ceiling, etc, and different rows for different rooms. An example might look like this: room wall base trim ceiling office 1 paint field color vinyl 2 chair rail / crown molding 2x2 lay-in I haven't figured out how to make the custom field parametric, but you can add whatever fields you need, and drop down text selsction makes it pretty quick to enter everything by hand... Another approach would be to do seperate wall types for each trim arrangement, but that could easily get out of hand on projects with a lot of variety...

So is it basic drafting/text to create your finish schedules? Or are they taged some way using generic annotation tag?

jrusso, could you attach that file again? I'd like to see how that project was set up. Our concern too is that we want to be able to schedule wall type, wall finish(which sometimes is 2+ types of finishes, wall protection, chairrail, & base board. all of this is within a room. I'm still learning how to customize these schedules to look like our company's standard and also get all the information on them and all of it be parameteric. Thanks for the responses!

finish schedule is a "corrupted" PDF, and cannot open

"finish schedule is a "corrupted" PDF, and cannot open"

Didn't work for me either.

I'm interior desiger by profession, but I used to be inline with commercial and residential interior design. Actually, designer  share the same common mistake when it comes to schedules since you have to consider the function, balance, scale, color, unity and variety to create an outstanding design. These are some consideration you have to keep in mind.
