When asked which warnings were most important to manage, many of our Ideate Software beta testers indicated those listed below, which relate to the geometric relationship between modeled Revit elements.
Some examples of these warning types include:
These ‘overlap’ warnings can indicate a complete or partial overlap between one or more elements. Even when a wall is (accidentally) duplicated in the same place, the warning type will be ‘overlap’ and not the ‘identical instances’ warning. The consequence of not resolving these warnings will be an incorrect quantity takeoff and may result in unexpected conditions when viewed in 3d views. Additionally, wall/ceiling/floor hosting problems could occur if elements are inadvertently hosted to a part that is unintentionally overlapping.
To fix an ‘overlap warning you should either:
Like the ‘overlap’ warning noted above, the ‘Highlighted [elements] are attached to, but miss, the highlighted targets” warning has the consequence of incorrectly reporting quantity takeoff information and may result in unintended results in 3D views. In addition to walls, this warning can also apply to beams and columns.
Typically this error occurs with the following sequence:
In this situation the geometric shape will be maintained, but Revit is alerting you to the fact that that might not be desired. To address this warning with Ideate Explorer:
The ‘Highlighted elements are joined but do not intersect” is similar to the Attached To, But Misses Targets warning noted above. As the warning implies, Revit believes the elements should be joined, though they do not intersect. This warning is caused when the Join Geometry tool is used to join elements that do not (or no longer) intersect. Join failures can relate to any 3D elements that can be joined.
