At the beginning of this August we received such a query from our client:
“I have a question regarding wall tags. I’m wondering if there is a way to setup parameters so that system will calculate wall marks sequentially in a numerical form as you tag the walls.
Instead of having to go and fill in the mark type on each wall manually before tagging, I would like Revit to generate these marks for me every time I create a new wall or break a wall into 2 walls.
For wall paneling, having the walls auto generate a sequential number scheme for the mark type would be extremely helpful. It would be fine to keep a specific wall mark for each different wall type, which it does now, but also add numbers after it.
Example: 2x6 Ext w/veneer – W1-1,2,3,4,5 etc. - (W1-) would be the mark type and a formula would be needed to add them up sequentially, automatically 2x6 Ext w/brick – W2-1,2,3,4,5, etc. - (W2-) would be the mark type. Let me know if there is something like this already.”
Thanks for the question. Yes, we have already a solution for solving this sore point of many Autodesk® Revit® users.
