    Question Electrical Annotations

    I need help with creating electrical symbols in Rovit Architecture 2008...
    Right now i use detail groups for each symbol but i would like to create an actual symbol in revit instead of these primitive groups.

    Is it better to use groups or symbols?
    What are the pros and cons of each...

    How do I create new Electrical symbols in Revit Architecture 2008?

    Default Re: Electrical Annotations

    If you open an existing electrical component (from the Revit Architecture library) you will see some that are in stock...if you open it, you will see how that component is created.

    Depending on what you are doing, you might have a geometric object and a annotative symbol, that will always be to printed scale. Those components are a bit mixed, but you will find the majority in having an annotation symbol (printed scale) nested inside the electrical family with geometry and lines (Actual Life size)

    HTH,
