Smart tagging of rooms?

242 Views, 2 Replies

I’m working on a house plan. Normally we measure the room and write the sizes like


11’9 x 11’.

Is there a smart way to do this like we tell revit areas to measured and it gives the size like this only in a pxq form?

Room objects in Revit do not have parameters on them to automatically report the length and width of a room.  It would be fairly straightword to automatically calcualte these values if EVERY room ever designed was rectangular.  But there are many other room shapes length and width are not so easily defined.


You can add shared parameters to a room object to be qable to add this infomration and have it report in a tag, but the sizes would have to be manually coordinated.

There is no 'smart' way to add this dimensions to a Room Tag.

The easiest way to do this would be adding dimensions to room, while keeping the area in Room Tag.
