Using “Filter” for quality control

This is a nice little trick you can use to double check your work visually. Filters in Revit have so many different applications, but In this example, I am using Filter to color code different doors based on their fire rating, for visual inspection throughout the project.

Let’s take a look at a portion of the plan and compare that with the end result:

Go to View> Filter

I created a Filter and called it Door (90 Min.), and so on for all the other rated doors in the project.

Then go to your Visibility/Graphic window, then Filter Tap, and here you can now add these filters into your View (or View Template). Then assign a different color for each Filter. Make sure “visibility” boxes are checked.

Done!

This makes it much easier to identify the correct door rating instead of checking through door schedule!

Enjoy!
