Revit template

 

When BIMfire tools are installed it will automatically add the included template in the drop-down menu for new projects.

If it does not show when install, try close and re-open Revit.

 

The location for the template is found here:

View folder

 

Control view placements by using Fire_BrowserGroup and Fire_BrowserSub

 

Control views

 

There are included five different control views that uses view filters to check which doors that have a value on Door Fittings, Door Magnet, Re-enter and Type of lock. The view will colour the different doors and only show the related fire alarm device.

Original views

 

Here are all the first views that are connected to the level name. This is to avoid accidently renaming the levels.

 

 

Work views

 

A set of views that has not model / annotation categories connected to the view template.

Makes it easier to change the view settings while designing.

Legends

 

In the template there are a preloaded legend in the project and are supposed to be used to use the Legend tool.

 

The legend needs to contain a Title, that are grouped into a Detail Group. This is for creating a “local” coordination system in the legend.

 

Add a legend component to show where the symbol should start from, and then add a text field for the description.

Schedules

 

ArchitectParameter, are a set of all Fire_Req parameters. It is a schedule for HVAC zones,

because it’s the only category that have all the parameters defined to it.

This can be saved from a sheet to a new file, to be sent to the Architect,

so they just can copy / paste all the agreed parameters in the project.

 

Remember to clean the schedule from unnecessary parameters before sending.

 

SplitWalls, it’s for the designer to easy find all the split wall symbols that are placed in the model.

After receiving a new model from the architect, it’s easy to go through which levels there should be splits.

Export DWG

 

In the file there is an export setup with standard SB 11-layer set, where all the components get the correct layer and color when exporting.
