Renumber Viewports with Dynamo – landarchBIM

Since I have been doing a lot more documentation work in Revit these days, I have become significantly more interested in how Dynamo can automate certain documentation tasks. One task that can always drive me crazy (especially in Revit) is renumbering viewports on sheets.

There are several different ways you can renumber viewports. I decided to use a simple ‘pick’ method so I wouldn’t have to do any reordering in Dynamo. This method works well with a smaller number of views, though it might be worth using a slightly more complex method if you have sheets full of details that need to be renumbered.

He demonstrates a method where he renumbers views based on a letter/number grid. Since the AU presentation wasn’t recorded, he also posted a screencast video.


But when I was trying to get this simpler method…
