    Tagging Floor Height and finishes

    Hi all,

    Question 1_ I am working on a project and i would like to label on plan,both the floor height [like a spot elevation] and the floor finish [as in pdf attached].

    I tried using the spot elevation tag but it does not work in plan, only in section and elevation, I tried editing the room tag to include both room level and floor finish. The room level came out as level name[as in Site datum] and the floor finish reads as a question mark.

    Question 2. Where do i feed in the floor finish information so it shows in the room tag?
    [ A breakdown of my Floor Structure is both Structural floor and Finish 1]...see image attached



    Please help!!!

    Make floor in a way it is actually built. First, make structural floor (e.g. reinforced concrete slab), then on top of it, add finished floor with all layers included except construction slab (e.g parquet, cement screed, PE foil, EPS).
    After that, when you check top&bottom tick within spot elevation tag, it will give you elevation of top and bottom of the top floor (between structural slab and finished floor).

      nnamdiakubuiro, Welcome to the forum.

      Answer to Q. 1:

      The spot elevation tag does work on plan. Maybe floors are off in your plan view? To see both the finish floor elevation and the structural floor elevation at the same time in the spot elevation tag, make your finish floor as a separate floor entity, on top of your structural floor. Then, tag the finish floor, setting the spot elevation tag's "Display Elevation" parameter to show "Tag & Bottom Elevations". Then, use "Single/Upper value Prefix" and "Lower value Prefix" to add abbreviations for Finish Floor Elevation, and Structure Floor Elevation, respectively.

      Answer to Q. 2:

      You need to find the room entity. You might need to use the Filter tool to find it. Then, in the Properties window, add the finish floor information. You could enter this information in a room schedule, as well. Then, if you have added the Finish Floor parameter to the Room Tag, then your ??? will change to the correspondent value in each case.

        Speaking of elevation tags, does anyone know how to make elevation tag to display top&bottom of the floor in the SECTION view?

          Or give the 4Revit add-in a try :-)
          It creates shared parameters in the room information and on request updates those with the floor data. It does this by material, so it works no matter how you design the floor.
          Sorry folks for the advertisment of my own add-in, but I could not resist.

          For the floor finish material information, here in Switzerland is normaly a shared parameter added to the room information. This parameter is then filled in by hand. Same is true for wall and ceiling finish materials and floor finished/rough elevation as well as window area. At least it was a manual task until the aera of the 4Revit add-in begun.

            In section, you need to tag finish and structure floors independently, since those options for double display in the spot elevation tag are available in plan view, only.

              hmmm.... but if i do that i have two different floors, if i change the size of the Structural Floor [based on some change by the structural engineer]...i have to start changing all the others individually?...also does that mean that the second floor is more a floor finish object_ will it then be drawn room by room?

                Thanks, that's what I thought.
                So, no chance of having this kind of tag:

                    Hi nnamdiakubuiro.

                    Yes, the idea of creating the floor finish as a separate object, is that it´ll be applied room by room. Works very well if you ask me (With the floor finish boundary locked to the surrounding walls)
