floor manager

I am unclear on what the floor manager is supposed to do

I am told with Revit when MEP services are modelled they can be automatically annotated and dimensioned

Does the floor manager enable automatic labelling of duct/pipe levels and dimensions off grids?

If that is its purpose is there a guide or example avaliable

i have been working on a number of large projects using the Bentley mechanical software and they were all manually dimensioned and had  manually edited level cells

  • Hi David, just to get back to your original question...
    When you place mechanical components with a floor set active, the Base Offset value set in the place component tool settings will be relative to that floor. In common with other ABD tools the Base Offset is only used at placement and is not stored.
    Regarding auto-annotation the mechanical Drawing Rules can be modified/created to show a range of values: Top/Centre/Bottom of duct and Invert levels at start and stop of run for pipework. These are all measured from model zero, not from each floor as we do not store the initial placement Base Offset.
