I am working on a complicated renovation project that involves an addition.  Typically in CAD i would create layer settings.  In Revit, I began using the phasing and phase filtering as I distinguished existing, new, and demolished partitions, doors, etc.

Here are my problems:

1.  I created a demolition plan view from my original plan view that only shows existing walls and demolished walls using the phase filter.  Part of my renovation involves taking two existing spaces and making them into one space.  I have not found a way to have an 'existing' room tag appear for the demo plan, and a 'new' room tag for the proposed plan.  I can not find a way to 'phase' the room tags, let alone get any room tags to appear in my demo / existing conditions plan view.

2.  Part of the existing building is only a crawl space where it abuts my new addition.  I would like to show the lower floor of my addition and these short foundation walls (above the lower level at 8'-0" AFF) but I have not found a way to control the cut plane so that it is independent of the cut plane through the unexcavated area.  I.E. when I set my cut plane to 9', I lose all of my doors and windows in the new addition plan.  I have tried using scope boxes but I think I am missing a step...

3.  Can scope boxes be any other shape besides a rectangle?  My addition nestles into an L-shaped corner of the existing building....

Any advice would be appreciated.

Quick answers:

1.  Tags only report the properties of the room (9.0/9.1).  Rooms in 9.0/9.1 are objects that are phase aware.  You can select and copy rooms from one phase to another.  Not perfect for every situation, but it might get you close.   Also keep in mind that you can place two views on top of each other on a sheet.  Provided they are the same scale they will 'snap' to each other with the dashed green alignment lines.  This may solve beign able to show room tags on the existing phase with the demo work.


2.  Look into using 'plan regions' found on the view tab to display areas of your plan with different cut planes. 


3. You can have any shape you want as long as it is rectangular.  The non-rectangular scope boxes and crop regions issue has been on the wish list for years!
