    Rooms inside a family?

    Hey community!

    i have a large project 2,000 rooms for a master site; and i want to create rooms and was going to use 2d AutoCad from a consultant to show room plans in the floor plans.

    is there a good way that you can think of that i can link the 2d to the rooms and schedule them? ive tried searching this and can't seem to find anything? the 2D AutoCad will be based on individual room and not per floor, that will be in a revit family that will have parameters built in to schedule.

    thanks in advance!

    To be honest I have no idea what you are trying to do. Are you getting floorplans from a third party in AutoCAD and want to add rooms in revit?

    I forgo using Room and instead use a built in family with embedded generic annotation text. Using this family you can place them in group, schedule them, phase them and make object show up on multiple level.
