    Schedule from Linked Models

    I can create a room schedule in a host model that displays room names and numbers from the linked model. I have noticed that if I place furniture in the host model and the rooms are in the linked model, the furniture schedule will not display the room name and number. Any clues on how to work around this?

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forums!

    When you add the fields to your schedule in your host file, in the "Fields" dialog there's a check box "Include elements in linked files". I think that's what you're looking for.

      The OP is looking for Furniture in Model 1 to report the Rooms from Model 2. It wont do that. Your current choices are:

      1. Link and segregate models by Geography, not systemically. (We do geo for wide, systemic for tall).
      2. Put all of the rooms in the host model (model 1) and set model 2 (in the type properties) to be room bounding.
      3. Dont report rooms for furniture.
      4. Put furniture in Model 2.

      Its something thats been asked for time and time again, and with the recent additions to accessing data from linked files, and tagging linked files, i have to believe we will finally get it soon.

        Ahh, right you are... I was putting the furniture in the linked model, per your choice #4.

          Thats how i do it as well. Even if i have to do systemic models, they are broken up such that elements in the rooms are in the same models as the rooms. We have an entire 40 minutes of revit training dedicated to the two methods of breaking up Revit models (Geographic versus systemic), ill have to finish the Wiki page we have and post it one day.

            That's 40 minutes I'd love to see Aaron, at the moment it is all judegement calls for us on how to break up the model and trying to anticipate the future usages of the models.

                  We are working with another architect who is modeling the furniture & equipment in specialty spaces for a project. They have a Revit model that is only these components, which we have linked into our model (which contains the walls & rooms). We are scheduling furniture & equipment in a variety of ways, including by room, so are trying to come up with the best solution to schedule the room information.

                  One of the team members in our office wants to duplicate each piece of furniture & equipment from the linked model in our model. Obviously, there's quite a bit of manual updating here and chance for error.

                  I was going to suggest that the other architect place duplicate rooms in their model that they name & number to match the rooms in our model. Once again, there is manual updating required in this scenario too, but I think the room names/numbers are a lot less likely to change as frequently as pieces of furniture/equipment.

                  Any thoughts?
