Keynotes Rock !

Thanks to for posting this CADclip on their site.

I recently spent a little time digging into the Keynotes aspect of REVIT and I have to say.
Wow ! That was far too easy. Why is everyone not using these?
Here's a basic sample image of what can be done.
With Keynotes you can link all materials and elements to an external 'keynotes' file and then tag the objects or materials with great ease.

There is a small investment of time to get your objects and or materials linked to a line item in the 'keynotes' file but the speed gain and consistancy in standards is fantastic.

All REVIT componenets and materials can use keynotes. You can have keynotes display the text (1/2" plywood), the 'key' value (80210.A1) or sequential numbering (1,2,3...).

Once you get these relationships linked up and saved to a template file you are off to the races.

You can also create bi-directional 'Keynote Legends' that do some amazing things.

Below is a 16 min. video CADclip demonstarting how keynotes can be used. Enjoy !
