How to create Revit sheets in a project, place views on those sheets, and create a preset print set. 


Firstly make sure that the correct titleblock is loaded in the project.

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

Right-click on Sheets in the project browser


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

Select titleblock and create a new sheet. If the BFT template is used, the new sheet will appear under "???", sheet number will continue on the latest entered combination(1,2,3,4 / a,b,c,d) and have a sheet name set to "unnamed". 



Move the sheet into a virtual folder by changing the value in the parameter Fire_BrowserGroup.

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

Change the sheet number and name by right-clicking on the sheet in the project browser.

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

Make sure there is a reference plane (Architecture -> Reference Plane) in the model. In Revit it's only possible to snap to datum elements in a viewport. It's recommended to draw the reference plane a bit outside the model where there are no other objects disturbing.


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

Note that a view can only appear on one sheet, due to the fact when added there is a special connection between the view and the sheet connecting them. Place a view on a sheet by drag-and-drop from the project browser. Use the move command to adjust the placement, it's also possible to use the arrow keys to nudge the viewport after it has been placed.


When the viewport is placed, check if the scale needs to be increased/decreased to fit the titleblock.


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

After the first viewport is placed correctly with a scale that fits the titleblock, create the rest of the sheets for each floor plan/section, etc. 


To use the Revit built-in functionality how to place several views in the same place on the sheets, via Guide grid. In the BFT template already exists a guide grid that can be used, PlacementOnSheet.


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

Select the blue guide grid in the sheet view, use move-command to snap to the intersection, and move to an edge of the reference plane.


The placement of the guide grid is relative to all sheets, which means that it will have the same placement on all the sheets with the same titleblock.

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

Repeat the procedure on how to create a new sheet, and move the new sheet to the virtual folder.

Drag-and-drop next view onto the sheet, recommended to drop it on the side of the titleblock for easier access to the reference plane.

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

Turn on the guide grid in the new sheet by selecting PlacementOnSheet in the properties as before, and move the viewport by snapping the end of the reference plane to the intersection of the guide grid.


Repeat for all sheets.

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

Select all the sheets in the project browser, and hide the guide grid in all sheets simultaneously.

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

Create symbol legends to place on sheets, i.e. with Legend tool.

Drag-and-drop Legends as well on the sheets. It's possible to use the same legend on several sheets if the project uses one legend for all symbols in the project.
