I have a question about "best practices" in Revit. Our firm is new to this process. I'm curious how most people work with the Revit model in the detailing phase. I'm working on noting and detailing wall sections. Because it seems very difficult to get all of the model lines exactly correct, it seems that I end up tracing over every wall section and eventually turning the model view off. Is this how most people work on wall sections? It seems to open up the project to change-tracking errors later on. I would appreciate input about how other people do this.

Thanks.

I'm not sure how you mean that the model lines are not correct.  All of my model wall, foor and roof lines are usually correct.  I usually turn off nothing.

 

I use edit cut profile to clean up finish returns and some intersection problems.  I have my window families made so that they are "stick" in coarse views like 1/8" plans but then I have detailed sill/jamb/head symbollic lines that turn on in medium/fine mode for details.

 

I still have some corrections to do if some families change like walls but I think it's working pretty well.

I have converted all my standard details for foundation and retaining walls, window sills, and any other details that I use on a regular bases. I than create a new detail view and place the standard detail in it. Than when I create a section I pick reference other view from the option bar and refer to the detail view. This saves me time having to redo the same views on each job.

How do you properly resolve wall/floor connections so that all lines are correct if various components end at different locations. For instance, we have hung joists. The decking carries over the foundation wall, the joists stop at the foundation wall and the gypsum finish ceiling stops at the furred out interior wall. There's no way that I know of to make the model resolve this intersection correctly, so I detail it and turn the model off.

Thanks!

When you add the ceiling pick the room go to a sectional view and edit it. Move the line, in a floor plan, by moving it out 1/2" to the framing of the furred out walls. The framed floor could be also edited to stop at the inside of the concrete wall. and the decking could be made as a seperate floor placed on top of the wood framed floor, by offsetting it up the thickness of the decking, and have it extend over the foundation wall. The joist hangers could be made as a detail componant or drawn as detail lines. Another quick way of solving the detailing problem, although not the right way, would be to make a filled region, representing the decking, place it over the wood framed floor, and extend it over the foundation wall. The same could be done for the ceiling using a solid white fill pattern.
