I was wondering if anyone uses a similar procedure described below for furniture scheduling using Enscape assets or custom assets. This is from an interior design perspective. My goal here is to streamline the process of adding Enscape assets and then schedule them in Revit.
1. After placing an Enscape asset in Revit, custom or not, open the asset family and change the category to furniture.
2. Inside the asset family, add some model lines in the top view tracing out the shape of the furniture. Hide the 3d geometry in plan/RCP, front/back, left/right.
3. Fill in the identity data information such as manufacture, part number, price, etc.
4. Reinsert the family back into Revit.
5. Add a type mark number to the family.
You can now schedule and tag all furniture and you will have a floor plan showing the placement of all furniture. Yes, you will not see anything in side views unless you add model lines to these views.
This saves time as you don't have to create a 3d model placeholder and you don't have a bunch of facet faces in plan view. I tested it out and it worked I can still see the 3D asset in Enscape and I don't see the model lines.
What are your thoughts.
