    Linked building multiple times - Door Tags

    Is it possible to have separate instance of doors if same model is copied twice (or more). I have same building in multiple places on the site and would like to tag each door as an individual door instance. How does Aaron handle this when linking multiple copies of same floor in multi-floor building?

    You can Schedule the File Links Instance Name.

    So we Schedule Link:Name | Door Number.

    Second Floors Link Name is "2", Third Floors is "3". Then we make the door numbers simply x01, x02, x03, x04. They schedule as:

    2 | x02
    2 | x03
    2 | x04
    2 | x05
    3 | x02
    3 | x03
    3 | x04
    3 | x05

    And so on...

        What about the tag - I'm not sure how to get the tag to find the link name or maybe I can't and need to keep the doors with same tag number?

          I dont know if the Tag can. Since- in our case- they were typical Floor Plates, we had a note telling it to refer to the Door Schedule to see what level "x02" belonged too... (We didnt tag the Floor Link Name).

            You could go low tech... individual door tags for each "floor" or "building link", put a fixed Prefix in the tag, report the real "mark" parameter. Just make sure you use the correct tag for each when you use Tag All.

              Hi Twiceroadsfool,

              Could you please expand more on this concept? I have different names for each instance of each link in my project and have named the doors within each link as you noted (i.e. x02...). However, when I run my door schedule, Revit will still consider each door as one and not separate the doors into each unit. The picture attached shows that I have tried only for Unit 1 Lower Level and Unit 2 Lower Level, and I left some unique door marks in Unit 2 Lower level instance. Door Tags.jpg

                Right. It will list ever instance of door "x01." Now, in the bottom left where it says "fields to choose from" (where it says "Doors") move that select to File Link. Then you can also schedule "link name" or "file name."

                Using link name, you put it as the column before mark. You end up with

                1 x01
                1 x02
                1 x03
                2 x01
                2 x02
                2 x03

                If you don't want to see every link turn them off in visibility/graphics.
