Revit 2019 Manager Tutorial Learning Objective

Understand the concepts of Labels, Text and Lines you use in Revit’s Title Blocks

Revit 2019 Manager Tutorial Topic

  • Labels and Text and Lines (why are these all together?)
  • Parameters
  • Best Practices
  • AutoCAD to Revit Drawing Problems
  • Scale, text, labels (attributed blocks bat) Sizes
  • CAD line work v. Revit Line Styles
  • Dynamic Title Blocks


5.1 Labels and Text and Lines

5.1.1 Key Points:
  • Naming Convention for EVERYTHING!
  • Line Types, Text, Label, Type, Family

5.2 Revit Title Blocks

This will cover the concepts of Labels, Text and Lines you use in Revit’s Title Blocks

5.2.1 Naming convention for: Text, Labels, Line Types, Family Types
  • Text – ex: W2P-Arial-1/8-1.10
  • Labels – ex: W2P-Arial-B-1/4
  • Company Name – Text Name – Bold – Size – Width Factor
  • Line types – ex: Title Block-Thin
  • Controlled/Created with OBJECT STYLES
  • Reason: Export to AutoCAD Line types and Weight
  • Family Types
  • Design Phase?
  • Sheet Type?

5.3 Parameters

There are only two “kinds” of parameters in Revit Title Blocks: Dimensional and Visibility. Yes, of course you still have access to all possible parameters, but you’re only going to use the two I mentioned.

5.3.1 Dimensional

If you need to change sheet sizes, you will have to Dimension and Label the extents of your sheet. Any “Relational Distance” between line work will have to be changed parametrically too

  • Adding Dimensional Parameters Steps
  • Dimension
  • Label
  • Add Parameter (Naming Convention)
5.3.2 Visibility

This parameter allows you to turn on and off objects. Think about your SEAL. You want to have it turned off for all of your plotting during DD and CD phase. Then at 100% CD, you will turn on your SEAL. Uses for Visibility
  • Architect’s Stamp (SEAL)
  • Title Sheet v. General Notes v. Drawing Sheets
  • Text and Labels, unlike Linework, cannot be moved parametrically. Adding Visibility Parameters Steps
  • Create the Element
  • Edit it’s Properties
  • Label the Visibility Parameter
5.3.3 Using the Parameters
  • Family Type Dialog Box
  • Create New Types
  • Instance v. Type Parameters.
  • What should your SEAL be?

5.4 Best Practices

There are both Use and Creation Best Practices.

5.4.1 USE

How do you move from PD to DD? What about the creation of your entire CD package, Title/Cover Sheet, General Notes, Details and Schedules?

A number of companies use multiple sizes, do you?

5.4.2 The Issues and Possibilities Sizes

Two different Families v. Two different types in one Family

  • Two different Families
    • W2P Titleblock – E1: Cover Sheet
    • W2P Titleblock – D: Cover Sheet
    • Two files to manage and maintain less types in a given project
  • Two different types in One Family
    • W2P Titleblock: E1 Size – Cover Sheet
    • W2P Titleblock: D Size – Cover Sheet
    • One File to manage and maintain more Types in a given project Types
