Revit Tip: Bathroom Elevations

Draw less bathroom elevations

Bathrooms have very specific dimensional and location requirements to meet numerous codes.







Problem


Every bathroom we draw has to meet these codes, but we draw all our bathrooms from scratch. Once the bathroom is drawn, we have to show compliance by documenting distances, heights, and equipment locations. We do this with numerous elevations and plans that require lots of labor for the exact same information every time.








Solution

Instead, use a drafting view that I created for Byung that shows all this information correctly every time. We simply insert this drafting view into our enlarged bathroom plans and you don't need to elevate all the similar bathrooms. Now you can concentrate on any unique conditions you have and spend less time on the mundane repetitive areas.
