    Concrete column schedule with NO grid

    Hi everyone,

    in our office, we have never been used the grid for concrete buildings but we use coordinate system X:Y for any element shown (see attached pic).

    1) Is there any way to manage column schedule with the number that I apply for each column?
    2) Is it possible to delete in COL. SCHED. the row with coordinates and add the row that will contain a number of a column? (see attachments how bad it looks)

    Thank you

    Right click on any of your columns at the top and select insert column.

    Select the schedule field on the right and click the arrow to the left to remove it from your schedule.

    If you don't come right let me know and I'll look for another method but that should work

    Regards

    Thanks for reaching back,

    1) I didn't get your idea. Do you mean "column" as a concrete column or a column related to column schedule?
    2) The column schedule can't be generated at all because there are no physical columns attached to the grid because in my project the grid doesn't exist.

    1) I meant the column in the schedule itself.

    2) however, if the column schedule can't be generated it might be due to the fact that the model is a linked file. It's only happened once with me I redrew the grids and everything was fine however this was in the beginning of the project I'm not sure how far into the project you are and if this method will work.

    I got your point but this is a new project. I wonder how people make concrete column schedules in concrete buildings. Usually, in our projects, no columns are aligned or colinear due architecture layouts, rooms, toilets etc. Even a small project would lead to hundreds of grids by a number and by a litera, too. That is why we use coordinates and it looks very accurate.

    Revit Structure Concrete Grapical Column Schedule without Grids

    We also are currently trying to provide a graphical column schedule using Revit Structure with no grids. This seems to be a NY city standard. Our plans will have concrete columns with a column identifier for each column, 1, 2, 3, etc.. The columns will be located using coordinates based on a hold point family in the column. Column 1 will be identified with the mark "1" and so on. I placed a simple grid with one intersection on my plan and had "include off-grid columns" checked in the schedule properties and this generated the entire column schedule with off column dimensions, obviously not what I want, nor in the correct order but did include the columns and levels.
    What I need is;
    The columns to be on the schedule in the order they are marked, 1,2,3,4
    Has anyone one been able to accomplish this with using Excel?
    Thanks!!!

    Ken, I think that Dynamo would be helpful here but I am still learning it at least to help me with a column schedule.

    I already did this 1, 2, 3, 4 etc. marks I have created a column tag and shearwall tag SW... with the "comments" as the only field to modify. When I choose a concrete column/shearwall it is easy to rename it in properties without opening any windows.

    Thanks for your reply, we are starting to use Dynamo as well however very green. I was hoping we cold use Revit alone to accomplish this. I've seen some column schedules by other NY structural engineers and they used AutoCAD and linked them in.
