Room Views Method

The Room Views method should be used to expedite the batch creation of views (and optionally sheets) that are room-based. Some of the tasks possible with this method include:

The Room Views method of creating new views begins with selecting the document you’re looking to get the rooms from. The room can be in the main model or linked model. One or more rooms can be selected. If you are using this method you will notice at the top of the Select Rooms dialog, that you have an option to specify the phase and the level. After adjusting both as needed, a list of any rooms associated with that level and phase will display. 

By default this list will exclude rooms where an elevation view marker already exists. You can uncheck this option if needed. 

There are two layout options available as shown below. The choice here will impact whether or not the newly created views will also be placed on a sheet. You can learn more about the Room Rule or Clone Sheet layouts in this topic: Room View Layout Options

When using a linked document for room information, the main model needs to be setup as follows:
1.    The model with the room information needs to be linked into the main model with the room views to be used.
2.    The level names need to match between the main model and linked model. For example, Level 1 and Level 01 won’t work. The names must be identical.

The list of room elements will display only those rooms within the linked file that exist on a phase that has been mapped to a phase within the parent file. Learn more in this Auotdesk Help topic: Map Phases Between Linked Files.

After the layout option is selected, the next step is to Preview & Create the views.
