How to Create Room Data Sheets in Revit

Room data sheets (RDS) are used to communicate the requirements of the client for a specific type of space to the design team and are typically created during the briefing or architectural programming stages. They can include general requirements, guidance notes, or detailed specifications of finishes and fixtures and fittings.

Information is usually displayed on a single sheet for each room which is why they are called. However, depending on nature of work, it could be spread out over more than one sheet. They are typically given to contractors along with the specifications and drawings.

A range of software is available to assist in the creation of RDSs. Certain software internet is designed to link Revit models in order that the content of the model as well as the room data sheet are identical. This synchronisation makes the document easier to manage and avoids duplicate entries in both.

Layer is a highly efficient management tool for the room data. It provides an easy-to use interface for recording room data, and can produce multiple sheets per space type. It can also backfill existing Revit projects with room types and create custom reports. Layer allows the user also to specify naming conventions on sheets, and also alter properties like scale, browser organisation and the naming.

The Layouts panel allows you to regulate the layout of the views that are generated on a sheet including margin values as well as the position of the titleblock. In addition, the option to exclude the view titles from estimation of the size of the view on a sheet is disabled. This can stop titles from appearing in multiple views on the sheet. It allows for more elevation views to be created on one sheet.
