Just came to a crunch this morning and now I have a chance to ask some questions (hope it doesn't sound too much like venting)
1. Is it possible to have a detail reference on a Revit plan, such that the same detail callout can be copied to a "similar" location and have the same detail number (You know how it always forces a new number, chronologically - don't want that)?
2. I want to mix CAD detailing in a Revit project. Okay, so I have a tedious workaround...I have been making dummy sheets, with callouts from the plans/sections/elevations to the dummy sheets. The dummy sheets are actually copies of "real" sheets in Autocad, with the proper-looking details. Having the dummy sheet is, of course, to trick Revit into showing the right numbers on the callouts. Is there a better, quicker, more intuitive way to do this?
3. We've been using Revit generated sections, and drawing the detail lines on top of them. Works fine, except when, lets say for example the roof or floors change height. Can all the detail lines be locked to the model? Also, what do you do with the unrealistic geometries created by intersecting roofs? We have a section through a roof but it needs to look as though it's a truss, not the way it is now. Is there a way to hide the Revit mess, and draft some truss profile?
Wes, feel free to speak into this!
Side note, we're only 20 percent on Revit, staff-wise...so the Cad/Revit issues are always coming up. I don't know when, but our goal is to all (6 of us) be fluent in Revit....
Thanks for any input,
