Kitting Title Block

The Kitting Titleblocks utilize a family called Kit Window which can display both Views and Schedules. The Kit Window family is multi-functional and created in a way to easily select views, assign view templates, and resize viewports. To apply to other title blocks, simply load the Kit Window family along with the View Templates into a project. Depending on the selected type, the Start/Stops are color-coded for visually identifying the view type.

The eVolve Electrical software has a predefined kitting title block that can be found in C:\Program Files\eVolve\eVolve Electrical for Revit 20xx\Resources\Families.

From the project, open a Kitting Sheet. Alternately, to quickly create one:

If not already done, create a kit area. From the eVolve Ribbon, in the Kitting Panel, click Create Sheet. Select the kitting template and click OK.

Click on an interior outline edge to select the title block family, then click Edit Family. This will load the kitting sheet family.

Options for the Kit Window Family

PlaceOnSheet – when checked, the view(s) appear on generated sheets

When unchecked, the views are still created and may be found under Assemblies in the Project Browser

View Template – defines the view template. Must enter a view template that already exists in the project

View title - user-definable and displays name of the selected view 

From the ribbon, the view templates are found in View\View Template
When assigning a View/Schedule Type, ensure the proper View Template is assigned

Height – user-definable and displays the current height of the selected view

Width – user-definable and displays the current width of the selected view

The viewport may also be resized by dragging the grips located on each of the four sides of the viewport. The resizing of the viewport also changes the scale size.
Views will either be scaled to fit or not scaled based on the Viewport Settings found in the Kit Manager under the Sheet Settings tab.
Choose View or Schedule

Checking one of the following View/Schedule Type options will display the view or schedule in the selected viewport. In order to function properly, only one type may be selected per viewport. When a View Type is checked, the name of the selected view type is displayed in the viewport. When a Schedule Type is checked, the name of the View Template is displayed in the viewport.

Views
  • 3d Ortho
  • Plan View
Schedule 
  • Schedule View- must be checked and all view types must be unchecked to use the schedule
  • Schedule to Copy- enter the name of a schedule type to copy that already exists in the project
In the Kit Window Properties, under Graphics, leave the Visible option unchecked.
If views are not correct or information is not displayed properly, edit the viewport and check the Construction parameters. The Construction parameters are preset values that drive the Spool Window family. If errors are displayed in the Construction parameter fields, check the current selections to make sure the proper View Type, Schedule Type, and View Template are correct.
To utilize these features while using a non-eVolve title block, open an evolve title block, select a section view, click edit family, and load it into the custom title block. Repeat these steps for additional kit windows to build a complete custom title block.
Editing and modifying the Kit Window family is not recommended and may cause undesired results.
