Acoustic requirements on walls are of the category, Generic Model.



When working with wall requirements there is a vast amount of requirements per project. 

 

Open Quick Wall Settings to define up to six different requirements which will appear on the six buttons.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Choose up to six different requirements in the drop-down menu. That list all Generic model and Audio Visual Devices within the project. 

 

Remember, to use your own symbols the requirement must be a line-based family. 

 

Choose from different requirements within the project such as

 

  • Acoustic Rating Wall
  • Disturbance level walls
  • Acoustic level wall.

 

 

The text for each button is now updated after the Type name.

 

It's recommended to connect each requirement to a keyboard shortcut. Note: Restart Revit to have the text from the requirement to be updated in the keyboard shortcut list. Otherwise, it will still be Quick 1-6 from start. 

 

Note: If a requirement is missing, contact the BFT team and they will create it ASAP and deliver the missing requirement.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


The Tool itself only lets the users select Wall categories.

 

The height of the wall will be copied to the parameter “BFT_Top”, and the length of the wall will be applied to the length of the family meaning they should be identical. 

 

Note: If the wall in the linked model has used “Attach top” / “Edit profile” the engineer needs to manually update the wall requirement height.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


The line-weight, line style and colour can be controlled under Manage → Object Styles → Generic Models. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


The wall requirements have three different requirements:

  • AcousticReq_AcousticLevelRating
  • AcousticRatingReq, which is always the same value as AcousticReq_AcousticLevelRating.
  • AcousticReq_Comments

 

 

BFT_GUID is a parameter, showing the user that this specific requirement is connected to a component in the linked model.
