FW: DIMENSIONAL CLEANUP TRICK
Rounding errors can be a problem which is why the smallest tolerance allowed is used. Typically when EQ./EQ. is used small fractions are created.
Here is a trick to help cleanup the dimensions that aren't exact-
- Create a tolerance dimension style if it doesn't already exist. It should be labeled similarly to the original style- but suffixed similarly to "(1/8 TOL)". This is a *special* temporary dimension which reflects the tolerance bound within a particular dimension style(1/8" typically).
- If needed- create a continuous dimension string (Try to avoid individual dimensions if you can). You can select entire walls utilizing dimension options to define the 'how-to" for these strings and edit the witness lines as needed.
- Make a copy of the dimension string you want to correct.
- Change the copied dimension string to the tolerance style.
- The alternate string will show a rounded value closer to the correct tolerance:
- Cleanup by selecting the objects you want to adjust.
- Start from established references like gridlines you know are accurate.
- To change a dimension (From Revit Help):
- Select a component that the dimension references.
- Click the dimension value.
If the dimension is locked, the lock control appears next to it. Click the lock control to unlock the dimension so you can change it.
- In the edit box, type a new value for the dimension and press ENTER.
- Rounding cannot be used in the dimensions as rounding errors will occur.
- If all dimensions within a string are an accurate representation of values rounding errors should not occur.
