General Usage Instructions
Digitteck® NameConvention™ for Autodesk® Revit®
Whether you are working on small or large-scale projects naming convention will always be an important component of your work. Naming conventions and standards are required whether you implement BIM or not.
Formalizing a standard file and naming convention for your team’s content means that everyone has a common language to use when referring to files and their locations. Establishing an intentional naming practice is a simple way to reduce miscommunication and improve efficiency, thus laying the foundation for a successful collaboration
Digitteck® NameConvention™ lets you quickly and easily standardize the names and other parameters of Revit elements. You have access to multiple elements in one place, and you can make the changes needed as simple as double clicking the element in the grid, or some features like “find and replace” or “wrap”.
Digitteck® NameConvention™ provides Excel support allowing a dynamic solution for updating the components from the Excel file.
Elements and editable parameters:
Views - ViewName
Schedules - ViewName
Legends - ViewName
Reports - ViewName
Viewports - ViewName
ViewsSheets - SheetNo, ViewName
Materials – Name
Rooms – Name, Number, Department, Occupancy
Areas – Name, Number
Phases – Name
DesignOptions – Name
Groups – Name
Parts – Name
· Basic Excel Exports – In the components of Views and Elements, you can export data to Excel, change the editable parameters in Excel and reload the file back into the app (do not change the sheet name, row position of elements).
· Lexicon Excel Exports – In the components of Views Lexicon and Elements Lexicon, you can export data organized as a dictionary of possible values to Excel. Example: with this feature, you can define for each element one value for each language you chose to work with.
· Wrappers – Allows you to add text at the beginning or at the end of names for a selection of elements or for all elements.
· Find and Replace – Allows you to find certain text and replace it with other text for a selection of elements or for all elements.
· Sync – After a change is made in the app the sync icon will turn from green to grey meaning that a change was made but the app has not updated Revit yet and, the name has not been synced with Revit. To sync click the update button.
