Door & Window Schedules/Type Elevations - Revit 2014

Creating Door & Window Type Elevations - Revit 2014
This blog post is intended to provide a short workflow detailing how to create "Door Type Elevations" which are typical on a sheet with corresponding schedules.  They typically provide the contractor quick information as to the look and type of door.
I've commonly seen architects and BIM modelers creating elevation views of a door. These elevation views not only show the door, but also the surrounding walls and other elements. After creating this view, it is required to then adjust the boundary to only show the door.  The problem with this approach is that it is not only tedious, but if the door happens to move or get deleted all together, then the view must be updated. Let's look at a more efficient way of doing this and the process involved.
Creating the Door & Window Type Elevation:
Use Legends to create these elevations. This process makes use of the Legend Tools under the View Menu-->Create Tab.  Click …

Uninstall Multiple Autodesk Products Quickly and Easily

If you have ever tried to uninstall an Autodesk Suite, you have probably noticed there are dozens of different products, all installed separately, they all installed together but where is the button to uninstall them all together? Unfortunately, there is not one! If you have ever sat at your desk, uninstalling each program one by one, keep reading this will save you alot of time!
I have put together a simple script using the windows utility WMIC to easily remove all Autodesk applications! Running this script will remove any and ALL Autodesk applications!  To run this script you need to first open a cmd shell, in order for this to run properly, it must be run with elevated permissions. To do this click start -> all programs -> accessories -> Right click on 'command prompt' and choose 'Run as Administrator'.  In the CMD window that will open type 'wmic', then hit enter. This will enter the wmic utility. Your command window should now look like this:

Revit Schedules with Graphic Yes/ No Parameters

You've probably seen what happens to your Yes/ No parameters when you place your schedule on a sheet. Revit automatically replaces the check mark with text.

Have you ever wanted to maintain a graphic representation in that Yes/ No column?  Well, you can with a little workaround.  You just need to create a new "Calculated Value" parameter in your schedule and fill out the formula with a simple IF() statement.  

The syntax should read:
if(*test*, *YES*, *No*)
Where *test* is the name of your actual Yes/ No parameter (choose this through the ellipses button)
and *YES* is the symbol you want to show if yes
and *NO* is the symbol you want so show if no

The symbols can be copied from the Windows Character Map.  Take care to use the same font that your schedule body uses or it will not show you the character you thought it would.

Use the "Copy" button inside the character map and inside the "Calculated Value" dialog box, use the keyboard shortcut "Ctl+V&q…
