Just a thought, is there any way to have duct color dictated by material type?  Possibly have a different material type on each type of duct to get the color differences?

That could be dangerous as we do CAM and manufacture directly from drawings....

Santos,
You can set the layer, color, color, etc in setup service local editor.  Another bonus with creating a new service type is reporting.  Make the filter simple and easy to ID want you want to report out.  Service type = ****.

We can't let the Service name the Layer as we have many different Spiral Duct options that are called out in unique Layer namings that we use in-house and those layers could use different Services depending on the job...

Fabrication Parts in Revit® / Set reference level when modeling
« Last post by Alina on Yesterday at 08:31:26 PM »
I noticed that when I draw pipe off the level below it inherits that reference level. Is there any way to set it so if I am on level 4 I want my pipe to have reference level 4.
I know I can change it later but was wondering if I can control it as I go.

I assume that since you have been logged in several times since the previous post and have not answered, or replied to two PMs I sent you regarding this issue (which have been read), that your 'problem' has been resolved?

CADmep™ Users / Re: Multiple specs in the same service.
« Last post by cpoompan on Yesterday at 07:55:56 PM »
You should be able to do all shapes in the same service. The only issue with Revit is you cant really have multiple materials in each spec. After parts are drawn Revit only gives you the ability to change service, not spec or material. Because you must specify the spec in the service, it requires you to make single material services and matching spec files.

How does your chiller and cooling tower service types work together? As in they have the same layer names but different colors so does the first one just win for that layer color?

Not tested, but I believe the color will apply when the layer is created. If the layer already exists, I don't belive it will change the color.

So in the case of 2 services types using different colors but the same layer, the layer color I belive will be based on the item that was drawn first and initiated the layer creation.

Fabrication Parts in Revit® / View template tips
« Last post by Alina on Yesterday at 04:38:55 PM »
Hey guys,
Do you have tips for setting up your view template when modeling?
Also when you applied view template and then you decided to set it back to original condition, how do you do that?
Your help is much appreciated.

Yup, that is exactly what I came up with, but is placing those fitting on a separate layer than the rest of the system, I need them to stay on the same layer.... might have to write a script or a LISP in the end...

There certainly is in Camduct (what I use) because I apply a texture (image) as a "Main Facing" to the item - see pic.

This has the effect of "coloring" the duct to make it appear similar to the material. I.E. the Galv facing is grey and spangled so it looks like galv sheet, Stainless duct items have a stainless steel slightly machined finish e.t.c.

It's all about using a suitable bitmap image which is "tiled" onto the item.

I use an extensive checking script and one of the changes it makes is to add the facing to the item based on the material.

Not sure if this method would work or is available in CAD but have a look.  :)
