    Revit Plans Naming

    Hello,

    I am trying to find names for the Plans (Floor Plans, Ceiling Plans) in order to organize our Project Browser. I have an idea like:

    00-Foundation
    0R-Floor Plan (Ground floor plan)
    01-Floor Plan (First floor plan)
    02-Floor Plan (Second floor plan)

    All suggestions are welcomed.

    Thank you in advance!

    Here is an example of the way we organize our browser where i work with design views for modeling and document views for placing on sheets.

    this can help divide up the views and sections for organizational purposes

    these are project paramenters

      The US Army Core of Engineers is working on a revision to their browser organization. Here is a snip from their 2012 template...USACE.PNG

        I completely eliminated using any "Parameters" that have to be input in the views themselves, even if done with View Template. Mine are done entirely with View Types, and View Templates. Views are Named based on increasing order of specificity (the opposite of what was posted by the OP) which makes the levels the LAST thing in the view name, followed only by the Areas of the levels, and Phase and SOW if included

        This groups common view types together. I love the way my browser looks, too. Very clean and easy to work in.

        Ive got a PDF explaining what the available terms are for naming the views, but its not on me at the moment.

          That is WAY too organized. Get that outta here. Get in the trenches with the rest of us.

            Aaron, are you able to do that with OOTB Browser Organization? Or are you using an add in of some sort?
            I'm retired, if you don't like it, go around!

              OOTB browser organization. No addins. And I use it *in the trenches* all the time.

                I too use 'backwards' naming to have hierarchal order in the (naming of) all things; materials, groups, families, linestyles, and yes, views. Aids no end when exporting (views as images) and defining print sets (both of which still rely upon Revit's oh so woeful 'lists')

                  Not a fan of "working" views....as items are usually hidden when they shouldn't be....

                    MEP disciplines would be absolutely lost without Working Views.
