How To Use Templates

ob_Template and “One Model Construction Drawing”

①When starting a project, a new project file (.rvt) is created based on the ob template.

(The ob template has settings that are primarily used during the design phase.)

②As the phase progresses and production design work is performed, the necessary settings are added from the file of “次世代 型生産設計_追加設定用 (.rvt)”.

    Project Browser

    Browser Configuration

    It is recommended to manage the hierarchy shallowly to maintain visibility. Views have many items that cannot be clearly divided into specialized fields, such as “views for inter-disciplinary coordination”. For this reason, the default configuration of the template does not include discipline groupings. Regarding coexistence with equipment modeling, it is assumed that it will be a link in principle, and it is not considered on the architectural / structural template. Browser configurations are user-specific, so you can add or change them as needed during workshare. However, when using cloud Worksharing, the browser configuration of the last synchronizer is inherited at startup, so it is recommended that the team decides the rules.

    View Settings

    View settings are usually project-specific, so use template settings as appropriate.

    Specialized Field

    Section symbols representing section view cut locations are only displayed for the same discipline as the current view. Discipline must be Coordination to list section views. For this reason, the view specialization is set only for work plane coordination, and for others architectural or structural. See help for other specialized drawing characteristics.

    V/G Overrides

    Detailed filter settings are not set in the template, as it is assumed that project-specific settings will be made. However, we have standard settings. Panel exterior joints such as ALC are used with wall sweep shapes hidden, but they are displayed in the template settings in consideration of editability.
    View Template Name Hidden Categories, Subcategories
    p_平面図(plan) (Model Categories) Site > Project Base Point, Site > Survey Point, Room > Reference, Part, Mass, Generic Model > Top Frame, Ceiling, Entourage (Annotation Categories) Section, Elevation, Reference Plane, Scope Box * “General model > Upper frame” is a blind box etc.
    pWork_作業用平面図(working plan) All are displayed, including cross sections and elevations. Note that the view range and view scale are removed from the view template.
    c_天井伏図(ceiling plan) (Model Categories) Site, Topography, Planting, Entourage, Roads, Parking, Floors (Annotation Categories) Sections, Elevations, Reference Planes, Scope Boxes
    e_立面図(elevation) (Model Categories) Rooms, Plants, Entourage, Furniture, Furniture Systems, Appliances, Appliances, Lighting Fixtures, Ceilings, Storage (Annotation Categories) Sections, Elevations, Reference Planes, Scope Boxes
    e_立面着色(elevation coloring) In addition to the same settings as “e_elevation”, the model display is set to “solid”.
    e_展開図(interior elevation) (Model Categories) Room, Plant, Entourage (Annotation Categories) Section, Elevation, Reference Plane, Scope Box
    エリア平面用共通(common for area plan) *If a view template is set in the area scheme, the default view will be set by the view template setting even if the property is removed from the view template. This will default the model display to halftone.
    In addition, a filter that colors the partition wall is set for the fire prevention compartment related diagram, plan details, and fittings layout diagram.

    Other View Settings

    As a slightly special setting, I apply a filter that colors the section view to the work plane. This is set to achieve both the visibility of cross-sectional views and the prevention of human error (such as accidentally moving the cutting position). Others are adjusted for each project. Many are in the view template, so adjust the view template accordingly.


    Rules for naming filters make operation easier, so the recommended rules used in templates are shown below. Filters continue to grow throughout the life of the model, and can number in the hundreds. Also, since there is no way to tell if a filter is assigned to a view on the settings dialog, it is difficult to remove it later. Therefore, it is desirable to eliminate duplication of filters by keeping the filter list highly visible. Below is an example of a filter naming convention. We recommend that you use category abbreviations that indicate the category you are filtering against. Also, adding the specialty to the prefix helps keep the filter list more visible. However, since Walls, Floors, Slopes, Roofs, General Models, and Detail Items straddle different disciplines, it is recommended not to add characters representing disciplines in order to reduce duplication of filter creation. Append the prefix to the end of the specialization if necessary. If you want to specify the user, add it to the end of the filter name. The filter name should express the filtering rule, and superimpose it on each family’s type naming convention to make it easier to understand and less confusing.
    category Connector example Example content Example filter rule example
    wall (design) WallA WallA_LF Fireproof LGS wall Contains L and F in the type name
    door aDoor aDoor_FS Fire protection SD (regardless of preference) Contains S and F in the type name
    wall (structure) WallS WallS_W20 Structural wall with 200 thickness Contains 200 in type name
    WallS WallS_W20_s When specifying the user
    WallS_W20_as Used in architecture as well
    multiple Multi Multi_undecided Undecided source “Undecided” in comments
    By workset WSet WSet_underground structure
    As a result, the filter will represent the project-specific information to be extracted, so it is desirable to create it for each project and share it with the participants of the model. In addition, only the filter rule is set for the filter, and the view setting for the filter rule depends on the view to which the filter is applied, so it can be shared by multiple views. Therefore, it is more efficient to share the filter itself with the project. As a result, it is desirable that the filter be inherited throughout the period up to the production design stage, so it is recommended not to add the user attribute to the special field attribute of the filter name prefix. There are many levels of structural filters available, but once you’ve decided on the level rules for your project, you can delete the ones you don’t need.


    Add legend

    There are two ways to attach legends to borders: use the legend view or create a new border family and embed it in the border family itself. Select accordingly for each project and edit/add drawing border families as needed. For color scheme legends, place it as an annotation element relative to the view. There is no ability to draw as an independent element in the legend view. There is no ability to automatically create a filter legend (because it is also used for hiding settings etc.). Create a legend view if necessary. There is also a way to paste a screenshot of the filter settings dialog to the legend view.

    Annotation Element


    The dimension type prepared in the template has a fixed extension line (both legs) length. Please adjust accordingly to your liking. Since there are many setting items for the dimension type, please refer to the help for details.


    There are no templates available, as worksets can only be set after starting workshare. Please set accordingly. When using worksets, setting views based on worksets breaks the view when creating detach models. Consider how to avoid associating worksets with view settings as much as possible.
