Using Room Separation lines

Find below Youtube Video with a few tips on how we use Room separation lines in projects. I can’t take full credit for the parking bay concept as I believe Joe Stott over at Revit Scratchpad came up with something similar first off.

Some will obviously freak out on how we add Room separation lines to a specific workset, but I can live with that. ;-)

The thing is, if you turn on room interior fill & reference, rooms are visible even when they are "floating in space". They just report as not being in an enclosed space. So why bother with the parking lot of room separation lines?

Good idea with line grid as a temporary roomholder!

You don't need a parking bay for rooms. You can just leave them unbounded. When they are enclosed again they start reporting square footage again. You can always just drag them off to the side of the plan or leave them in place. When you get the warning box that says delete room - just hit Ok. It leaves the unbounded room in place. Even if you do deleteit from the plan - it remains in the project as "Unplaced" and can be placed at a later time.
