    Multiple company Logos?

    I'm in the process of further developing the Templates for Revit.

    My current issue is how to deal with the number of different Logos that this place uses on it's title block. What I mean is, the company has several different office locations with slight variations on the Company Logo (address, Name Prefix, Contact details)

    I'd Rather not have a different title block for each office in each size as this become hard to manage, Currently I'm considering the following options.

    a) Using ON/OFF switches for each Logo per drawing sheet.

    or

    b) Using a similar system as the AutoCAD setup we use where the Titleblock is loaded and the Logo is Xrefed (Linked) in from a set location on the local server. (ie same pathing but different office.)

    Option A is less problematic, but B is more user friendly.

    I'm looking at option A unless someone else out there has Plan C that I haven't looked at?

    Cheers

    Hi Simon, and welcome to the Forum.

    Personally I´d go for option A. Even if the logo´s should change in the future, it´s still just one Titleblock that you need to update and reload.
    To make it a little more user friendly, (And I´m assuming that each office have the libraries on own servers) you could make sure that the logo´s are set to default to the right logo for each office... If not, it´s still not a big issue for the end users to select all instances and check "Office X" in the properties dialog.

      Thanks for the Welcome.... It's nice here...

      We use a Central Server for Content (DFS) So there is 1 template, and 1 set of Content spread out to 11 regional offices.

      Looking further at my issue, it looks like there are small differences in the ACAD titleblocks between States as well (different statuary requirements) that may need to be included in the ON/OFF Switch. So Option A looks to be the best way forward. with those other differences.

      Cheers

        Option "A"

        I agree with Klaus, with using the "on/off" parameters makes it fairly simple. We have multiple clients that have to have different information shown a particular way. Check what you want on and it is done. We also use this for our Architectural Stamps as none of our engineers use revit. Also the same, check whoms stamp and there it is; also good for adding stamps like "Not for Construction" and such.

          The ON/OFF parameter is used alot in the title blocks already for "Not For Construction" Stamps as well as a "Check Print" block that turns on/off for QA requirements. So it is no big deal, but it seems there is some agreeance for option A which is good.

          I just wish the ACAD guys would stop trying to make Revit work like ACAD. Would make my life a whole lot simpler.
