Kit Settings

eVolve Project Kitting Configuration Window

To give users ultimate control and application of their kitting data, eVolve now has the Kit Settings feature. This feature allows control and creation of kit status’ in addition to filtering, coloring, and dozens of options to customize kitting views, schedules, and sheets.

Kit Settings

  1. Kit Status- The Kit Status panel allows the user to add and define any status when the sheet is created. Simply enter a status parameter and select the color to apply that will be visible in the kit manager.
  2. Assign eVolve KitId- This is the parameter value that will be applied to the evolve kit id parameter. By default, the kitID_Name parameter is assigned. More than one can be applied at a time by copy and pasting from the drop-down menu into the parameter field.
    1. Change Status on Sheet Creation- When a new sheet is created, the status selected in the drop down menu will be applied to that sheets status field.
    2. Automatically assign scope box- When checked, the cell within the kit manager is populated with the scope box it resides in. If the kit is contained within multiple scope boxes, the scope boxing containing the largest kit area is selected. if eVolve Electrical cannot determine a scope box, the kit will be sent to '(Unassigned)'.

Sheet Settings

Views

Naming- This menu defines which parameter, within the kit area family, will be used to name the created View. If the function finds a duplicate view name, which is not allowed in Revit, the second drop down, If duplicate exists, defines which option is taken. Options are:

  • Add suffix to new (Default) adds a number to the end of the name.
  • Prompt at each occurrence will provide a prompt with these options if needed.
  • Override existing gets rid of the original and replaces it with the new one.
  • Rename existing with suffix will add a number to the existing name and keep the new name as entered.
  • Do not create new will not create the new view.
 Note: While users can specify a value to apply to parameter naming fields, the Select Parameter (s) field is also a menu containing Revit and eVolve parameters. The parameters may be appended or chained together to provide a more applicable name, as shown with the KitId Template above.

View Creation

Viewport Crop Region- The Crop Region will determine the extents of the view beyond the selected kit area. Negative values will make the region smaller and positive values will make the region larger.

Viewport Scaling- These options allow for scaling selected views to fit in their locations on a sheet. Choose to scale to fit plan views or 3D ortho views (Default).

View Template- Here the View Template can be Assigned or Applied, like in spooling.

 Viewport Types- Select which view options to apply

Scope Boxes

Rotate view based on scope box- When checked, the kit's view will match the rotation of the scope box in which the kit is contained

Sheets

In the project browser, each kitting schedule title is composed of a sheet number and name.

Numbering

Starting Number- This option defines what the sheet starting number will be when sheets are being created. Users can define a prefix value to be placed before the number. For example, a prefix value of B1 will result in subsequent sheets numbered B1, B2, B3, etc…

The second option, select parameter(s), is like the naming options for views and schedules in this window. This option defines which parameter, within the kit area family, will be used to name the created Sheet Number. If the function finds a duplicate sheet name, which is not allowed in Revit, the second drop down, If duplicate exists, defines which option is taken. Options are:

  • Add suffix to new (Default) adds a number to the end of the name.
  • Prompt at each occurrence will provide a prompt with these options if needed.
  • Override existing gets rid of the original and replaces it with the new one.
  • Rename existing with suffix will add a number to the existing name and keep the new name as entered.
  • Do not create new will not create the new sheet name.

Naming- This defines the naming of the sheets that are created. Users can select a parameter to define a name or manually enter a name.

Schedule Settings

Schedules

Naming- This menu defines which parameter, within the kit area family, will be used to name the created Schedule. If the function finds a duplicate schedule name, which is not allowed in Revit, the second drop down, If duplicate exists, defines which option is taken. Options are:

  • Add suffix to new (Default) adds a number to the end of the name.
  • Prompt at each occurrence will provide a prompt with these options if needed.
  • Override existing gets rid of the original and replaces it with the new one.
  • Rename existing with suffix will add a number to the existing name and keep the new name as entered.
  • Do not create new will not create the new schedule.

 

Filtering-  This feature defines which filter is dynamically inserted into the newly created schedules. The Filter by dropdown defines which parameter, within the kit area family, will be filtered by. Select Condition lists the options as to which condition will be applied to the filtered parameter. Apply parameter defines which parameter value will be applied into the filtered condition.
