I am curious as to how everybody goes about creating site plans in Revit. We've been doing all our projects in Revit for about a year now, but most of them have been renovations that didn't require much in the way of site work. Now we are working on our first new construction project with a lot of site work and I'm curious as to how everyone else goes about this.
At this point, I've just been showing everything (curbs, roadways, sidewalks, etc.) as model lines. This has worked fine for dimensioning and allows me to create callouts for enlarged views, but I'm running into a problem with keynoting. I had forgotten that you can't add keynotes to lines. (I started a thread last year about keynoting lines which got pretty intense). In the old post the debate was about whether interior items to be demolished (like millwork) need to be fully modeled or not. In this current case, surely people are not modeling every curb/gutter and sidewalk in 3d?
Also in the old post someone mentioned using line based detail components instead of model or detail lines. This would work except that a lot of our site work is curved and as far as I know there's no way to do that.
As I've been experimenting around with this, I've noticed that lines drawn in an In-Place mass can be keynoted. Is this a good idea or am I creating more trouble for myself down the road?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
