    Room finish schedule.

    I know, I know.. many questions on this, so this isnt about HOW to create one..

    I am attaching some parameters to my rooms for walls, as we have floor finish GA's and reflected ceiling GA's that pick up those finishes. What I want to do, is attach parameters to my "Rooms" and on some of these, have them as material parameters. I can then go to the materials editor, and choose the one I want. ie:

    Parameter = "Wall - North"

    as a material, which I can then pick the correct Paint finish for that wall. I know its not true BIM etc, but it at least means I can pick from a list of correct materials, rather than letting someone type in "Paint - emulsion" each time and spell it wrong etc..

    Will this cause Revit to have a fit somewhere else down the line, by attaching multiple material parameters to my rooms.? I cant think that it might, as these are only parameter entries, rather than an object that has taken on the actual material.?

    Cheers

    Hi Jim,

    Thats a good question.. Now I have looked at it, I think the only benefit it gives me, is that I can pick a material from the material library. I thought I may be able to mix the material keynote into my "room schedule" finishes sheet.. but I cant.

    So, I might just switch back to using key names, as its a very standard project, and I really just want it for surface colours, ie "Painted MDF - White"..
