REVIT Room Calculation Point CADclip

CADclips Announces New $39 and $99 REVIT Video Training Tutorial Subscription

Furniture, Casework, Specialty Equipment, Generic Models, Doors & Windows Now Have Room Calculation Points managed from within the family editor.

In REVIT 2014 that is.

Prior to 2014 these MEP categories already had room calculation points. Lights, Electricical Equipment, Mechanical Equipment & Air Terminals.

When you are in th family editor you just need to turn on the room calculation point toggle and it appears as shown below.

In order for this control to be enabled the family category has to be 'room friendly'.

Room friendly means the element 'knows' what room it is in. When this happens you can include room information when you schedule the elements or you can include these elements when you schedule the rooms. It works both ways.

Here's an image of the elements in the family editor after the room calculation point has been enabled.

The CADclip video tutorial below explains the above conditions and then some.
