    Question Use Omni Classification with Revit

    Hi there,

    Has anyone successfully deployed the use of Omni classification with Revit.

    Care to share what are the things to look out for? And also the benefits of such practice.

    The 2.0 version of the National BIM Standard utilizes Omniclass information, check it out:

    The omniclass code for a toilet partition should be 23.15.11.15.11

    However, this is not a valid omniclass number in Revit. In fact you can't enter any of the 23.15 codes.

    The source file is separate, which means editable. Obviously it is incomplete as is. Revit system families are also immune to Omniclass data as they have no built in parameters for it and no way to reference the same data set if you make your own. Bit of a disconnect there eh?

    Wow Thought I was missing the mark somewhere. So.. I am still using R13. When I have a railing family with a profile family defined for railing usage and choose the omniclass it does not come thru either. What is the point of this existing in the profile family? Any? And..." no way to reference the same data set if you make your own" ? as Steve pointed out. Does this get any better in recent versions or ????
