How to Create Room Data Sheets in Revit

Room data sheets are used to communicate the client’s requirements for a particular space type to the design teams. They Features of data stream models are typically developed during the briefing and architectural programming stages. They may contain general requirements, guidelines notes, or more detailed specifications of fixtures and finishes and fittings.

Information is usually presented on a single sheet for each room thus the name. However, based on the nature of work, it could be distributed over more than one sheet. The sheets are usually provided to contractors along with the drawings and specs.

There are a myriad of software applications to help you create RDSs. Some are designed to link to Revit models so that the model’s contents and the room data sheet are compatible. This synchronisation makes the document easier to manage and avoids duplicate entries in both.

Layer is a powerful tool that can help with the management of room data. It provides an easy to use interface for capturing room data and can generate multiple sheets for each space type. It can even backfill existing room types in Revit projects and generate custom reports. Layer also allows the user to specify naming conventions that are applicable to views on sheets and can control properties such as size, browser organization and names.

The Layouts panel lets you control the layout of views that are generated on a sheet including margin values and the position of the titleblock. The option to prevent view titles from estimating size of the sheet’s total view can also be turned on. This will stop titles from obscuring views on the sheet and may also allow more elevation views to be created on the sheet.
