Sifting Through Unreferenced View Tags in Revit – Part 2

In the prototypal conception of this digit conception journal post, I introduced a artefact to graphically identify unreferenced views by applying a flushed colouration to analyse tags that hit not been settled on sheets. The impact is evenhandedly straightforward: create a filter for callouts, sections and elevations with a blank artefact value and then administer a flushed colouration to those tags. If you desired to ready this filter conformable from analyse to view, then you crapper add these filters and colouration rules to your analyse templates.

But what if you desired to make your section, callout and rising tags so that they displayed TEMP or TEMP VIEW in the attach itself? Well, the beatific news is that you crapper easily do so with very little effort! If properly created, you crapper even hit the views automatically reason themselves within the send application without the need for a bespoken application organization.

From instance to time, it is a beatific intent to vanish discarded views since they contribute to increased file sizes. With this method, it module be very cushy to identify and vanish discarded views from your model. In addition, since the temporary views module be unreferenced, they module not print due to the conceal unreferenced analyse tags settings in the print talking box.

To physique the temporary tags, you module need to go to Manage > Additional Settings and select the identify of attach you poverty to create. In this example, we module pore on Section & Callout Tags. Elevation tags are similar but the attach creation requires a bespoken embody and pointer kinsfolk first.

To create the temporary country head, simply modify your accepted country nous kinsfolk and vanish every of the detail meaning labels. You module then change the meaning labels with text (TEMP, or TEMP VIEW) since these views module not be settled on sheets. Be sure to spend this kinsfolk with a newborn study since you do not poverty to overwrite your accepted country nous family. In this case, I ransomed this kinsfolk as Section Head – Filled Temporary.rfa. Once saved, load the kinsfolk into your template. Note: This impact is the aforementioned for the callout head.

Now that you hit created your temporary attach families (section, callout or both), you crapper today physique the tag. To do so go to Manage > Additional Settings and select the identify of attach you poverty to create. In this example, I duplicated my antiquity country attach and renamed it so that it had the word Temporary in it. I then swapped discover the Section Head - Filled for the Section Head – Filled Temporary kinsfolk file that I meet unexploded into my template. I mitt the Section Tail as is since it is graphically appropriate. Note: This impact is the aforementioned for the Callout Tag.

Once you hit shapely the Temporary Section attach (and/or callout tag) you are today ready to join those tags as a country type. In this example, I duplicated the Building Section grouping family, then renamed it as Temporary Section. Once renamed, I applied the temporary Callout Tag and Section Tag that I created earlier. Note: This impact is the aforementioned for the Plan and Detail Callout Tag.

Now that you hit created the Section and Callout Type, you are ready to ingest them in your drawings. Here is an warning of the Temporary Section and Temporary Detail Views classified without some customization to the send browser. Finding these views is cushy and module earmark you to make an informed decision on which views to ready and which views to delete.

Here is an warning of the Temporary Section and Temporary Detail Views in your model. As you crapper see, it is rattling cushy to characterize between the views on sheets and the temporary views. Since these views are unreferenced, you crapper administer the filtering rules from the Part 1 journal place and colouration these sections to further characterize the various analyse types.
