For example, if you are adding a room to a Level 1 floor plan, and you want the room to extend from Level 1 to Level 2 or some point above Level 2, specify an Upper Limit of Level 2.
For Offset, measuring from the Upper Limit level, enter the distance at which the upper boundary of the room occurs. Enter a positive number to go above the Upper Limit level, or enter a negative number to go below it. The default is 10’ (4000 mm).
To include a leader line with the room tag, select Leader.
For Room, select New to create a new room, or select an existing room from the list.
To see room-bounding elements, click Modify | Place Room tabRoom panelHighlight Boundaries.
Revit highlights all room-bounding elements in gold, and displays a warning. To see a list of all room-bounding elements in the model, including those that do not display in the current view, click Expand in the warning dialog. To exit the warning and remove the highlighting, click Close.
Click in the drawing area to place the room.
NoteRevit will not place a room in a space that is less than 1’ or 306 mm wide.
If you placed a tag with the room, name the room as follows:
Click Modify | Place Room tabSelect panelModify.
In the room tag, click the room text to select it, and replace it with the room name.
If you place a room inside bounding elements, it expands to the element boundaries. You can also place a room in a free space or one that is not entirely bounded, and then draw room-bounding elements around the room later. When you add bounding elements, the room expands to the boundaries. See Room Boundaries.
