Create Views Usage

Create Views tool is to generate plans, perspectives, and elevations from the rooms in the current document with a few simple steps.

First of all, select (Right Click or Shift Select for multi-selection) the rooms from the Listbox which display (“RoomNumber RoomName” )  all the placed room from the current document (see figure 1.0).

After this, select the view types and view type families to be used for the views (see figure 1.1).

View Scale value options show related to the current project unit, figure 1.1a shown METRIC unit and see figure 1.1b for IMPERIAL unit. View Crop Offset value unit is used millimeter(mm) for METRIC and feet(ft) for IMPERIAL.

In the View Naming box, you can add Prefix, Suffix to your view name. The Middle is for  RoomName and RoomNumber with typeable spacing and if you want to omit RoomNumber or RoomNumber choose None from the dropdown list. And View Naming Preview is dynamically displaying the name of the views which are going to create. (see figure 1.2 & 1.3)

figure 1.3 – View Naming (IMPERIAL Scale)

One last thing is View Naming for Elevation views which are included additional suffix (A, B, C, D) by default for each of the elevation sides from the elevation marker. (figure 1.4)

  1. Hey, I was just wondering if this plugin would work with linked geometry.
    I created a Revit model containing only rooms as local geometry. Rest of room bounding geometry as walls, floors, roofs or ceiling are coming from linked files.
    I tried to create Dynamo script for re-centering rooms but I think it can not calculate position of geometry since it is in linked files and therefore can not compute and re-center rooms.
    Would your plugin work in this scenario?

  2. Hi,
    I am using Revit 2020 and have tried your create views tool for rooms and have found that if I want to use the linked Architect Room and click on your tool it shows non of the rooms i have selected, the checkbox for the linked revit model to be room bounding is checked.
    also a nice feature for your tool would be to have it also create a sheet with the views placed to speed up creating multiple room data sheets.

    1. Hi Robin, this is only for the rooms that exist in the current document. And of course, creating sheets would be amazing. Let’s see … what new tools will include in the upcoming version 😉
