How to customize sheet in revit


Comment by Earl Agostinelli

Haga is falconer click here and in today's video i'm going to be sharing these five amazing tips for creating sheets in Revit or four sheets in Revit so when working with sheets in Revit they are quite simple to create but there are some useful tips along the way that you can use to kind of speed up your workflow or to make everything look better so the tip number one that I'm going to be sharing with you is of course how to create just a simple sheet and also the two ways of approaching placing views on sheets so two different ways that you can place views on your sheets the second tip is going to be all about creating multiple view multiple sheets so on large projects you're always going to be having a lot of sheets so it's a good idea to have maybe a faster approach student you have to create each one manually so you can create all of them at once and then you can just play around with placing views and those then the next step is going to be all about using guide grids so this is a very useful tool that Revit has to offer and it allows us to basically align all of the sheets in the same way so for example on each sheet you'll have let's say we're having multiple floor plans and you want to have the floor plan sitting in the same place on each sheet because if it's sitting on it it's if it's in a different place on each sheet it looks kind of unprofessional so you really want to have that aligned in the same place on each sheet so I Revit has this very useful tool that basically solves that problem next I'm going to be sharing with you how to create custom sheet size so rabbit has some basic sheets on offer but it's really cool to have a custom sheet size so I'm going to be sharing that as well and in the end we're going to be exporting all of this so I'm going to be showing you how to export either to a vector format like AutoCAD or PDF or how to export to a bitmap format kind of like JPEG or TIFF or something like that or if you have your printer connected I'm going to show you how to just print it out straight out of rabbit okay with that's going to be the tutorial for today and for I get started we just like to ask you to like this tutorial it helps me out a lot with the YouTube algorithm and also if you haven't already I suggest you subscribe because I make useful Revit tutorials each week I have multiple tutorials each week and also each week I have an advanced Revit course they are all over one hour long I've got 24 courses out so far so if you want to check out those first link in the description of this video check out my patreon there you can get access to all of those courses and also not only the courses but also all of the project files that I use for example like this project file that I'm going to be using for this project so if you take a look here let's just switch to my screen and as you can see over here I have this house this was actually a five hour course where I'll show you how to create this house so we have a nice 3d view we also have this nice detailed floor plan then also we have this roof room diagram then we have a basically just a section and then also we have an exploded diagram so let's say we want to place these on sheets so let's first create the sheet so for creating sheets you can either go here to your project browser and find your sheets and here as you can see the manga doesn't really have this little plus sign as you can see over here so the sheets manga doesn't have that but what you have to do is just right click on sheets and then you have the new sheet option so you just click there and then here you have to choose which basically the dimension of the sheet that you want to use so for example let's say you want to use the a zero metric you just click a zero metric hit enter and there we go so we have here a sheet with a customized title block that I've created for this for basically for this project now if you want to learn more about customized title blocks I explained that in that five hour course but I also have a free tutorial here on YouTube and a link to that will be in the description as well okay so here we have a sheet and now we have to basically place something on that sheet so you can basically do that by either going over here in the menu and just going to any view so for example at sea floor plan and then you just grab it hold on so click and hold and just drag it over here and place it on screen and there we go now it's placed so you have that view here on screen you can also get a go here to views and then you can go here to view the place view just click there and then you have to select which view you want to place so let's say we want to place I don't know let's try let's search for this section so do we have sections here okay here we go section one I'm just going to go add to add to sheet and there we go so now we can place that section now as you can see it it gives us it offers us to kind of align it down here so we can do that and there we go we have that section so those are basically the two approaches to placing views on sheets now let's say you want to create multiple sheets you have a large project with multiple floor plans many many sections and many elevations and you need a lot of sheets so it would be really slow to always go here and then a sheet right-click and then your sheet and then you do the whole process again the the way quicker process is to go here and you go to view and here we have your schedules now you open up that drop menu and here we have a sheet list now this is usually used just to basically give you an idea of how many sheets you have so you go to your sheet list and then you can maybe do the sheet name and also the sheet number there we go now of course you can do maybe the who approved the project or who who drawn that who designed that so basically it's useful to have this sort of a schedule to just keep track of all of the sheets you have and who's responsible for those but also through this schedule you can create multiple sheets really quickly so I'm just going to hit OK here and here we have a simple schedule and it only has one sheet but I can go here and we have the option to insert that row and if I just click on that as you can see we have a new sheet and I can click that really fast and I can very quickly add new sheets and also here we have this you sheet option and if you just click on that just because as you can see it currently we have multiple sheets here but if I go here two sheets and open up the menu we only have the 103 so that's this one a 103 we don't have any of these other ones and that's just because Revit doesn't know which which title block or which sheet size to assign to that sheet so for that we just go here to back to a new sheet we click that and here we select which title block we want to use so let's say we want to use a zero metric for all of them and then we basically select all of our sheets so just called select the first one hold the shift key select last one that's it click OK and there we go so now if I scroll down here to sheet as you can see we have a lot of sheets so as fast as you can cl

all right guys now we are going to look at doing sheets that is the next objective in our 2020 Revit certification objectives okay so we're gonna create and modify sheets which is really easy there's not a whole lot to do here first of all we want to make a sheet how do we do that well we go up to the tab bar and choose view on the View tab and then come over to the right to sheet composition and we click on sheet and it may give us one or two or three choices of title blocks to use okay different sizes and if we want to load more we can click on the load button and choose some of these other sheets to create other sizes and of course you will probably have more that are in here in this list because your company will probably have some specific some sheets are specific to them and the work they do so let's choose that one click open click OK and I do this this nice big sheet now the only modifications that you would make to this sheet might be some of this information right over here so we can actually double click into the sheet and then we can get here where we can actually change some of this information in these text boxes now that will affect everything on this sheet so if I use this sheet again it will have that information because I'm changing the actual sheet ok so I can get into each one of these little text boxes and change what these sheets say it's just a matter of again just like we double clicked to get inside the sheet we would come and probably just single click no double click to place our cursor in here and get a date or project number or something like that okay so real simple and then after this what we do is we place plan views on our sheet well first we want to save any changes that we made so I would come over here to the white space somewhere out to the side and just double click to get out of that we're still in it see maybe loading the project can close let's try that blue Save Changes yes this do you want to replace it yes typically probably would now of course that is going to that is going to change the actual original but that's okay all right so now we're back outside the sheet so now what we want to do is place plan views on the sheet so this is really the end of sheets stay tuned for the next videos next video where we will place a plan view on this sheet


Thanks Frauenhubh your participation is very much appreciated
