Aligning views between multiple sheets and consistently placing new views on new sheets is an absolute pain when there are more than a few views involved. We need a better way to manage view position and placement across sheets. With Sheet Assistant, a new tool in BIM Project Suite, you can streamline your view placement + easily manage and configure your sheets.
Pro Tip: Combine Sheet Assistant with the power of View Creator and Spreadsheet Link to accelerate your Revit workflows!
Accessing the Sheet Assistant
Sheet Assistant is available with the 2023 version (23.0) of BIM Project Suite and is compatible with Revit 2019-2023. To access the tool once downloaded, open Revit, navigate to your ribbon and then select the CTC Software tab. You will see a section called “CTC BIM Project Suite,” which is where you can select the Sheet Assistant tool.
Sheet Assistant Interface
- Source: Load in a pre-saved configuration or a sheet that exists already in your project.
- Destination: Use the ‘Target Sheets’ tab to apply view layouts based on a template, sheet, or configuration. If you need to define new sheets or new views on sheets, use the ‘New Sheet’ tab.
To start using the tool, (Step 1) navigate to your chosen plan sheet under the ‘Sheet’ tab. If you already have views placed on your sheets, the preview window will detect those elements and provide the view name, type, and scale on hover. Before you set your view alignment method, (Step 2) select the view you want to adjust in the preview window. The selected view will highlight green. In this example, we are aligning our keynote legend. Once your view is selected, (Step 3) use the drop-down boxes below the preview window to set your alignment method. Next, (Step 4) select the sheets you’d like to change under the ‘Target Sheets’ tab, then use the (Step 5) ‘Select All’ button to the right to select all the views on those sheets. Click apply and watch your views align in a flash!
