There is a very helpful capability in Smart Hangers, an application for Autodesk® Revit®, to calculate Hanger Elevation from Level. That is if you have a Duct/Pipe/etc. inserted in Level 1 with the height of 3000mm, hanger would inherit this parameter and you can easily transfer it to your created parameter automatically. That can be used for very informative tagging.

So this is how I used it in 8 easy steps. I don't know exactly how your organization does the tagging, but this is an example of what you can do:

Smart Hangers - hanger typesPeople often ask about how Smart Hanger solution works and it is important to know things to fully understand the concept and be able to make their own ones to utilize the Smart Hangers in projects.

First, I want to point out, that Smart Hangers puts hangers on faces of elements (Ducts/Pipes/Cable Trays, etc.). So, if you change an element (e.g. duct position), hangers would be attached to it and wouldn't be lost.)

There are sometimes situations when inserting trusses with Truss+ RT trusses are connected incorrectly. That is because Revit® parses structural truss connections independently and creates its own interpretation of how these should be joined together.

For that reason, we've built Update Truss Connection function into Truss+ RT. To use it you need to select the truss you want connections to be updated and use the function which is under Trusses menu category in Truss+ RT.

Another tip is for Truss placement at walls. When trusses are placed on the same level as walls are, bottom chord cuts the wall by half of its height.

That is because structural truss members are placed in the middle of their section by default. The best way to solve that is to make wall top offset of the length equal to half of the section height of bottom chord.

2014 03 04 Flat Trusses-0 (Custom)There are situations when you need to insert flat trusses in your project. That might be necessary in various situations. Looking at it conceptually, flat trusses are common trusses with zero slope angle and higher heel height.

It is easy to add them in your Autodesk® Revit® project using Truss+ RT solution. This explanation also works the same with sloped flat roof, but you should use different truss types for that. For example, mono pitch trusses.

To make flat truss you should take these steps:
