I am trying to edit the revision table I copied from Autodesk title block but not sure how. Can I also add another column and link my own parameter to this table? (Please see attached)
Thanks in advance.
I am new to the discussion group so I'm unsure what to include exactly but here I go.
I am working in Revit MEP 2013 modeling existing pipe work and duct work using a point cloud. Well inserting the pipes and fittings I receive the error shown in the image which states:
"The routing solution failed because there is no default fitting type specified ot the fitting cannot be
found in the project. Ensure the fitting is loaded in the project and try again."
I am kind of new to working with pipes and duct work so this could be a simple fix but I'm just lost. If anyone can shine some light on this for me it would be greatly appreciated!
I would like to recreate/mirror an autocad block attribute in revit. It's the best way I can think to explain it. In my attachment, the highlighted areas are cad block attributes. I am attempting to recreate our client title blocks in revit. The OOTB choices do not cover all the instances as far as label choices go. A prime example is a (3) line drawing name that has different attributes. I would like to avoid putting any old label in, and just making the text what it needs to be.
Thank you in advance for any assistance.
I am writing to report a problem I came across with in Revit MEP 2014 ( trial version) and see if you have already found a solution and can help me out.
When working on ducting, if, for example, there is the main duct and you get a flex connection (picture 1), a disconnection occurs when sizing the system (picture 2). This unprecedented error just comes with this version of the application and according to my own experience and a few others, there is no such complication with earlier versions.
I would be grateful if you could guide me and let me know if there is a solution to the problem.
I am having an issue with an annotation family that seems to be happening to me when I place an object on a slanted wall in a 2d floor plan view. I am using a junction box with an annotation family and I have it set up so that I can change the offset of the annotation without moving the object itself. My problem is that when I place the family on a slanted wall the annotation box I have drawn shows up fine but the text that is supposed to be inside of it is offset and appears lower than the box itself. Anyone who has run into a similar issue and has a work around or a solution please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated.
can anyone help me with setting up rvt files to open auomatically in Revit MEP 2013 viewer mode? I would like to roll it out to an entire organization, wither through GPO or login script. Any help is much appreciated.
I am using 2013 & 2014 for couple of months now without any problem.
All of a sudden 2013 freeze and every time I open the program it freeze
when I click something so I decided to remove and re-install it (2013
only). Now that I am experiencing sort of problem, I tried to
repair/re-install/update but with no luckL
Although I have 2014, I still prefer to have my families to be created
Every time I try to start a pipe by clicking the connector on an air handler, I get the message:
"Revit could not find a matching Pipe Segment in Default pipe type. Please check the Default pipe type's routing preferences."
The connectors have a radius set to 1" so the pipe should come out 2". When I click the connector however it always goes to 2 1/2" so I manually have to change it to 2". And then once I click to place the segment of pipe, I get the message. I've checked Segments and Sizes in the Routing Preferences and there is a 2" and 2 1/2" size both listed. Any idea why I'm getting this error?
I am trying to get my duct liner to print with my duct so my field guys can see in the notes that there is 1" duct liner where it is supposed to go, see the tag on the duct that is lined and see the liner on the duct. I do not want to make my duct view wireframe since it makes other aspects look inncorrect.
i posted this problem in API but no answer, seems there are not alot of visitors there
i have an drawing on MEP

i dont want to Purge as am still working and i dont want to lose the items inside as i might use it
i also opend the 3 packups but still same problem
it was working great few days ago and i didnt install / update anything
can someone help me with that ?
P.S : i have 12 GB Ram so i dont think it is ram problem
but i noticed this happend today (never happend before) when i only open the MEP drawing, the ram
jumps direclty to 1 or 2 GB just when it opens, usually it take 600 MB when opening only without touching the drawing
I am trying to create our standards for lineweights to use in Revit. I am taking our cad lineweights, and making them better. I have 16 lineweights that I am happy with, at least in one scale I do. My question is: Do I need to take the set of lineweights i have (for 3/32" scale), do the math, and make the remaining scales proportionalte? I have included a screenshot as an attachment.
Thank you in advance for any assistance.
1. The ribbon does not display the relevant panels/tabs for a certain comman (attached are some examples).
2. I am trying to create a duct riser (branch) from the main duct but the duct shoe is shown perpendicular to the air flow. (should always pallel to airflow). I tried to rotate but there is an error saying "tap should be connected to duct".
please see attached.
any favourable response will be much appreciated.
Hair is all pulled out...
I use Revit MEP 2013.
I have a model, linking in 3 Architectural models.
I can tag rooms of 2 of the links, the 3rd link will not do anything.
I can see the Blue of the rooms and the cross showing the room but the tag does not show when hovering over those rooms.
At the junction of drawing I warned Lookup Table Appears.
How DoI set the path Automatically be placed on the connections.
Ok, So whats the deal with insulation in Revit 2014? I cant seem to get the surface pattern to come out like I want it. Or even change it at all for that matter. My process is to select the duct-edit insulation-edit type-little material button-Graphics-surface pattern-select&Ok. But nothing is happening?? what gives, is this a glitch? thanks!
I want to create my own duct and my duct fittings.
And i want to create duct sytstem use only my duct and duct fittings.Is it possible?
For some reason that I cannot figure out, the structural grids in the Architecural models I'm linking to our Electrical models stay dark, they don't get lighter like everything else in the Architect's model when I set the link to "Halftone".
Has anyone else had this problem? If so, how did you resolve the problem?
I shouldn't have said "like everything else" in the sentence above because the structural grids are not alone in their rebellion, the ceiling grids also remain stubbornly dark a lot of the time. I've had some success in the past with these by making changes to the ceiling material properties for whatever type of ceiling I'm dealing with but sometimes it just doesn't work.
So, if anyone has any insight about how to get the ceiling grids to conform to the "Halftone" setting also, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance for any assistance offered.
I'm trying to create a family of transformer stands when the design calls for them to be stacked over each other. I already have the stands created in CAD format, currently just importing just one stand "75kVA XFMR Stand" as a family.
My question. Is it possible to just import a 45kVA stand, created in CAD, into the XFMR Stand family and modify the visibilty settings between the two, in order to be able to choose between different size stands in the model?
I'm working in Revit 2014 for the first time. I've tried setting up a new MEP project using the "systems-default" template.
1. I go to the "Insert" tab
2. I click "Link Revit"
3. I go to our network server and find the directory that has the architectural model I want to link in and work on
4. Revit appears to be loading the file and within 5 seconds Revit crashes and I get an error message "A software problem has caused Revit 2014 to close unexpectedly."
I've opened the architectural model and cleaned it up with no issues. I've even tried to link an autocad file with no issue. It seems to only happen when I try to link a revit file.
The architect is using Revit 2014.
