Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a symbol list, part of BIM Manager: Managing Revit.
- [Instructor] Well, we do need a symbol list…basically telling people what our funny little symbols…actually mean.…I'm of the mindset that every single symbol…should look the same and mean the same thing…all around the world.…Let's just concentrate on getting the symbols…to mean the same thing within your firm.…In this video I would like to create a symbol legend.…This will involve bringing in annotations…that are presently in our models.…Then we're going to create a schedule where you just add…you're symbols and notes.…Then you can decide which one you like better.…To get started I'm going to jump into Revit.…Let's just jump into an architectural template.…
Now let's go to the view tab.…Under legends let's just click the drop down and go legend.…For the name, we'll just call it symbols all caps.…For the scale, let's make that one to one.…Let's click okay.…Now if we'll go to the annotate tab.…We can click on symbol.…Now you can grab any symbol you want.…If we have section head filled to whatever,…we can just plop it in.…
