    creating auto-updated windows schedule

    A. How can we include elevation and plan views of the windows with dimensions in the default auto-updated schedule of Revit?
    B. If one project has windows that are in different categories, is there a way to include them all in the same schedule? For example some balcony doors will be in the doors category or some frameless glass walls will be in curtain wall category.

    A. Not possible, well you could ad an image to your family, but you will have to change that every time your family changes, so that's nor workable at all. You will have to make your own plan and elevation views. I think a Legend view is probably the best way to go. You can add a plan view and a front or back view to you legend (drag the family from your project browser onto your legend view) and add dimensions and text (can't tag). This is something in Revit I would really like to change. Compared to some other programs out there, this is a lot of work in Revit

    B. I'm guessing you can do a multi-category schedule and apply filters to end up with just the doors, windows and curtain walls. Never tried that myself.

      I suspected it! But it still hard to believe, that such a popular BIM program, has not included such a common drawing sheet that is required for any building. I am aware of the legend way of doing it and this is how I've done it, but you have to do everything manually (apart from legend components) which is not the philosophy of BIM!

        I agree, something I had wondered from the first time I started using Revit, why there is no easy way to do this.
