Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Color fill diagram, part of Learning Revit.
In this movie I'd like to introduce you to the Room Object, and specifically how to…create a color fill plan from the Room Objects.…The Room Objects in Revit represent the actual rooms, or the spaces that are…enclosed by your walls and other geometry. One of the features that Room Objects have…is the ability to be color-coded to represent various information about our…space. So what I'd like to do is create a color…presentation plan here that indicates the function of each of the spaces in my…overall plan. So the basic process we need to follow is…an overall three steps. We need to add some rooms, which are…going to represent the actual spaces. We need to assign data to those rooms to…represent their different funcionts. And then finally create a color scheme…that will color based on those functions. So, it starts with the Room Object which…we can find on the Architecture tab here on the Room and Area panel right here.…
Now, the way that the room object behaves is that if you move your mouse into the…
Note: The techniques shown in this course will work with any version of Revit, but due to backwards compatibility issues, the exercise files for this course will only work with Revit 2014. Unfortunately, we cannot downsave the files. Please see a Revit 2013 course for usable files.

Q: Will Revit 2014 files work in a previous version of Revit? Will the exercise files for this course work in Revit 2013?
A: Revit file formats are not backwards compatible. A new file format is introduced with each new release. Newer versions of Revit can open older version files without issue. However, files will be upgraded to the latest file format during the initial open. Once saved in the current version, there is no way to save them back to a previous version. Therefore, it is important to consider this issue carefully and discuss it with all project team members before beginning a project. For example, it is not possible for the architect to use a newer version of the software than the consulting engineers and vice-versa. All members of the team must collaborate using the same version/file format. This course was authored using Revit 2014. Therefore, its exercise files can be used with any flavor of Revit (Architecture, MEP, Structure, or LT) 2014 and later. Files cannot be opened with versions 2013 and prior.
