Throughout the project we need to print out sheets from same floor plans in different scale (with label).

If sheets are made with duplicate as dependent I have to change (many) scales every time I want to have a print in different scale.

If I make them with duplicate with detailing, floor plans are not completely identical (room tags missing, occasional detail lines missing, etc.). I would like to avoid doing same things twice in floor plans.

And finally of course I can't place the scame floor plan view in different sheets. 

 

Any suggestions how to make different scale prints with only one floor plan view?

We have duplicate views for each floor plan that is on a sheet. This is where room tags, dimensions, etc. don't need duplicating because each sheet is different. Each one can be scaled however we need per sheet.

 

We duplicate as dependent mostly when we need to split a plan across multiple sheets. Room tags, dimensions duplicate so that we can work in the overall and it transfers acorss all sheets. Each scale is locked to the original which is great for consistency.

 

Where I think the heart of your question lies is when we are intermediately printing something for review. Where we aren't printing a full sheet at full size. For example, if I want my Life Safety Plan on 11x17 I go to the plan view that is referenced on my Life Safety Plan and print the view to the printer zoomed to make it smaller (but still standard) scale. An eighth scale view becomes a twentieth with a 40% print zoom factor, etc. Whole sheets work the same way. Once set up, you can batch plot a full-size set with a saved print setting that spits them out as a half size set with just four extra clicks.

 

Hope that helps.

This is good feedback, but i'm running into a similar situation where i want to have a "reference plan" at a smaller scale (1/16"Winking and then i want to have annotated plans at a larger scale (1/8"Winking- i can't seem to make them relate without changing the scale each time...any suggestions on what i'm doing wrong?

 

thanks

Do you mean that you want the same plan with annotations on one and not on the other?  No brainer ... duplicate the view and add annotations.

 

The model is universal to all views - the annotations are view dependant.

when you want to make different scales as such, but from the same view, you run into certain problems: as you decrease your scale, your tags stay the same size, so they proportionally grow and it is very difficult to place your tags so that you can print at an 1/8" and a 1/4" and a 1/16".  But if you don't care, you can create your sheets in a different file, link in your model (which I'm all about having the sheets in a seperate file from the model, so that the model runs faster!) then create 3 new views at the scale you want, choosing the view that you want.  Other than this, I think you are going to have to create seperate views.

THANKS FOR THE FEEDBACK

I have duplicated the view and headed down the road.  i'm slowly learning what is view dependant and what isn't (new user).  This is helpful, thanks much.

Watch out... there is also a dependant view option.  Dependant views are just what they say.  They both have the same information... model and annotation.

 

When you copy a view, you can also copy with detailing (all 2d annotations & linework.)

 

Also remember, that even though one view may be 1/2 the size of the other view, REVIT treats all linework and annotation locations as being relevant to the model.  SO  , you can copy from one view and past same place in the other view.  You do not have to retag/ or re-create any linework view to view.  Just copy to clipboard and past same place.
