    Model Text Using Room Info?

    Greetings,

    I have created a generic model family using model text that will display the "room number" for use in Navisworks. This is so we can easily see what room we're in while navigating the Navis model.

    I'm currently putting in the room numbers manually, but would like to speed up the process. If I schedule the family, it can tell me what room it is in, but I can't find a way to access that information in the family itself. Essentially, I would like the family to behave like a room tag, where you place it in a room and it automatically reads the room info and updates the model text. Is this possible?

    Thanks!

    Not natively. but there are add-ins that could help.

    Schedule Sync by BIMCoder Suites is free on ADSK Seek site.

    Ideate BIMLink is similar but possibly more powerful.

    Both of these allow export and re-import to/from excel. You could copy paste the whole column in excel.

    I think the best (and most elegant) solution would be to us Case Inc's "Place 3D room tags" It's free and seems to fit the bill exactly.
    Apparently BigBadBIM was taken, so MrBIMtastic it is.

      Thanks for the info. I tried the Case family, but I couldn't get it to work for me. I went through the dialog box and nothing happened, maybe I'll try again. I did open the family to see if I could find where they were pulling the info from, but there was nothing that I could see, so I just assumed you would need the API to access it. Thanks again!
