If you are looking to to reduce the number of warnings in your Revit project, but do not have a lot of spare time, here are a few simple examples of how to fix some of the most common Revit warnings with Ideate Explorer.
The Duplicate Mark (or Number) warning is one that is likely not a performance-related warning. Mark and Number (for Room/Space) values are required to be unique for COBie deliverables, and can also be required as part of an owner-mandated deliverable criterion. The consequence of not resolving this warning type is between you and the person paying for the deliverable.
A Duplicate Mark warning means that within a given data category (Doors, Mechanical Equipment, Structural Foundations), each instance has a value for the “Mark” property, and at least one value is not unique.
Strategies for resolving the Duplicate Mark/Number warning:
The Duplicate Type warning is, one that is likely not a performance-related warning. Type Mark values are required to be unique for COBie deliverables and can also be required as part of an owner-mandated deliverable criterion.
Unlike Duplicate Mark, the Type warning is a bit harder to resolve via Ideate Explorer, because while the Type itself can be selected and displayed in the Properties palette, the type is not editable in this mode. For this reason we are recommending that either a Revit Schedule or Ideate BIMLink be used to resolve this condition.
The Identical Instance warning is important to resolve as it will create inaccurate schedule and quantity takeoff information, exposing the project to liability. The good news is that this warning type is very easy to address with Ideate Explorer and you can review and fix the warning right from the Ideate Warnings tab:
