    Intelligent Interior Elevation Tags

    We have a project including new and existing spaces with over a 1000 rooms that will be renumbered per the owner's directive. There is well over 400 rooms that have at least 2 elevations, most with 4. Is it possible to create an interior elevation tag in dynamo with intelligence to display the room number/name in the view title? The alternative is to manually rename all the interior elevations after the room elements are revised. Note, we are in 100% CDs.

    The fastest way would probably be to make the view titles generic and add a room tag to each view.

    There isn't a way to make the view title smart out of the box, but if you could probably make a dynamo script to do it for you. Even if you haven't used dynamo before the amount of changes (and the possibility for error) makes it a good project to learn with.

      Interesting work around. We were actually looking to an automated approach to eliminate man-hours of work, but it would seem that one way or the other, hours of work will be required. Thanks for replying.

        You can do it with Dynamo. Assuming youve already renumbered the rooms to the clients liking, of course.

        1. Have it search each Elevation View for a Room Object.
        2. Take the Room Object, and get its Room Number.
        3. Rename the Elevation View based on the Room Number you collected.

        It might not get them all 100%, if there are issues like multiple rooms showing up in the view. But its worth a shot?

          Aaron this is encouraging news! I'll let you know how it turns out.

            You name your (RDS) views according to the respective room? WOW. :hide:

              Makes sense to me. Closest thing to a unique identifier... Aside from a unique identifier.

              Sent from my Phablet. Please excuse typos... and bad ideas.

                There are already 4 scripts that do that, and they were shared in the Dynamo forum: https://forum.dynamobim.com/t/create...by-rooms/10769
                Script No. 1 moves the room Tags to the center of each room. Script 2 creates new Room Data Sheets Views for each room. Script 3 actually creates 4 elevations per each room. Script 4 renames them.
                All first 3 scripts work like a charm, but the 4th one only works well on a single story project, for some reason I am trying to find. For single level projects, I have been able to rename each view by the room name (Level designation followed by room number and a description; e.g.; G-04-Elevation A), and it really is a time saver!

                Hope this helps...

                  WorkFlow from Revolution Design also has a view renumbering tool that works great.

                    Here is a workflow that may be a good starting point as well. This one only gets the room number, but could be modified to include the name. It's not actually renaming the elevations, just the title on sheet.
