You can now import room data from your Revit model directly into drawing.tool.

Includes Room Names and Numbers parameter can be sent from Revit into your analysis model. This helps by populating existing information from BIM into your building analysis model!

Typically every Revit model will have a series of views showing the rooms with the name and numbers displayed via tags. Check these views in your model to see the information that will be imported.

Steps to import Room Data

  1. Export your Revit model using the Revit cove.tool plugin as guided here.

  2. Make sure your Rooms have been places in all enclosed spaces in your floor plans. Follow this guide on how to place rooms.

  3. After successfully exporting the model geometry, click on Export Rooms to now export room-based geometry, room names and numbers.

3. Back in drawing.tool, you will now find geometry imported based on room data exported including all the names and numbers automatically detected and assigned.

Notes:

If a room was not present in Revit and automated name and number will be assigned when the room is created in drawing.tool. To help identify these rooms that were not part of the Revit Import the tag and properties table will be highlighted orange. These Rooms can either be modified, or continue modeling with the auto assigned information.
