Keeping the Revit Project browser tidy

I had an interesting conversation whilst with a client about how untidy the Revit browser can get, especially when you are creating multiple section and elevation views that merely help with the creation of the model. You may have no intension of using these views on drawing sheets and they often clutter the browser.

One simple way of achieving a tidier browser is to create different types of section and elevation views. Select an elevation or section mark and then choose type properties. You can then duplicate the type and give this a meaningful name. This name will then appear in the browser as follows.

Another very useful thing to do is create different family types for your section heads so you can instantly recognise what each section view is representing. I have created a model section head that clearly states it is a model view only and gives the section views name.

Hope this helps,
