We can all agree that Revit really shines when it comes to using parameters. So why don’t we utilize any parameters when we are creating 2D details? Sure, lines and filled regions work great, but where is the BIMness in that? I have created a short video showing you how to create a filled region that uses the line-based family. This will allow you to create filled regions, of any length or thickness, without having to edit a sketch every time.
Although Revit has a ‘drawing title’ built into its viewports, there is no bimtastic way to create a title for just your details that are on one sheet. What you might be currently doing is drawing a circle with a simple line coming out of it, and then just slapping some text over it. That might great for your project, but it leaves a great deal for error and inconsistencies between sheets and details. Especially of you have a very large project with a bunch of people working on it, you are leaving it up to everyone to create the exact same view title. Yikes! Follow along with the video below to learn how to create a parametric detail view title so that every detail in your Revit project will look exactly the same, sheet after sheet.
