I am new to REVIT MEP,
When you start the Revit mechanical template you will get only two plans for two levels, how to create Plan views for more levels for different disciplines and subdiscipline?
Thanks for any help
Solved! Go to Solution.
You create new plans by either:
1. View tab » Plan Views ▼ Floor Plan and select the Level to associate it to. Uncheck "Do not duplicate existing views" at the bottom.
2. Right-click on a View in the Project Browser and duplicate that View.
In either case, you can change a View's Properties as needed, including Discipline, Subdiscipline, etc. etc.
In order to create a new Level, open an Elevation View and go to Architecture tab » Level. However, if you are working with a Linked Revit Model, it is recommended that you use Copy/Monitor to maintain coordination with the host's Levels.
Creating a Reflected Ceiling Plan and turn on all of the Categories you wish to see. If you only want to show the elements that are on the ceiling, you can adjust the View Range so the View is "cut off" right below the ceiling level.
Are you running into any specific issues?
I do not have problem with Revit Arch
The issues in with Revit MEP, I manage to create Electrical - Power views, I would like to create Light sub-disciplane under Electrical? how to do this??
Also how to create coordination plans and RCPs?
Thanks for any response
"The issues in with Revit MEP, I manage to create Electrical - Power views, I would like to create Light sub-discipline under Electrical? how to do this??"
In the Mechanical and Electrical Project templates, there is a Project Parameter called "Sub-Discipline" under the View's Properties, which I imagine may be absent in your case. In order to create this, go to Manage tab » Project Parameters. In the following dialog, if you don't see that parameter listed, click "Add..." and match the setup I've shown in the image below.

In order for your Views to be sorted in the Project Browser, you'll have to modify your Project Browser's Sorting. To do this, select "Views" at the very top of the Project Browser, right-click on it, and select "Browser Organization..." from the list. The current sorting method will already be selected, so just click "Edit". In the following dialog, go to the 'Grouping and Sorting' tab and add "Sub-Discipline" as the second pull-down. You make have to move the existing sorting parameters down a step, first. Note that this will add a little extra clutter to the sorting of your Architectural sheets.
"Also how to create coordination plans and RCPs?"
RCP's are created in the same fashion as normal Floor Plans (see my first reply to this thread), except that you select "Reflected Ceiling Plan" from the pulldown.
To make a View a "Coordination View", set its 'Discipline' to just that under the View's Properties.
Thanks for your time replying to my questions,
please see the following screen capture, the question is there also
Regarding your Issue #1
You can assign a new Value for the Sub-Discipline Parameter under the View's Properties. Just change it two whatever value you wish, such as "Lighting". If there is already at least one other View of that Sub-Discipline, it will appear in the pull-down list so you don't have to retype it every time.
Regarding your Issue #2
First off, you should make sure that there is no View Template assigned to your Coordination View; open the View, click in the drawing window to make it 'active', and then under Properties change 'View Template' to "<none>".
Next, open the Visibility/Graphics Overrides (type "VV") and ensure that the checkbox in the 'Visibility' column is checked for each of the Categories you wish to see, such as Mechanical Equipment.
As an optional step, once you have this set how you wish, you can create a View Template by right-clicking on the View in the Project Browser and select "Create Template From View...". You can then assign this Template to the Current View and to other Coordination Views so you only have to perform this work once; and if you have to make alteration to the Views, you only have to modify the View Template to change all of them at once.
