When creating a room data sheet, say for a healthcare project, it is often necessary to create a 3D axonometric view per room to accompany the detailed floor plan, internal elevations and schedules. To create these views within Revit involves multiple steps:
- Duplicate an existing 3D view.
- Rename the view.
- Activate the section box and modify its extent to extend just beyond the room’s bounding box.
- Set the view’s orientation using the view cube.
- Lock the orientation
- Apply a view template to control the graphic appearance.
Creating a large number of 3D axonometric views can be time-consuming and error-prone. For example, Revit does not allow two views to have the same view name. Therefore, each view created must have a unique name, which must be entered manually. Additionally, sometimes multiple rooms must be grouped within a single 3D view. For example, a hotel or hospital room usually consists of two ‘sub-rooms’ – the bed…
