System Filters Revit mep

To set up system filters, you need to select the View tab on the ribbon and then choose Visibility/Graphics Filters (see Figure 9.20). You will then notice that, in the Filters dialog box, there are several filter names that are in Revit MEP by default.

You will also notice that there are categories that have different elements selected. These are the items you want to have affected by the filter. Next, you will notice under Filter Rules that, by default, System Classification is selected. Because of the large number of filters that are normally
created for a project, you should change the Filter By setting from System Type to System Name.
This will help to identify and separate your systems properly. To create new system filters, the easiest method is to select an existing system filter and then click the Duplicate icon. Once the system filter is duplicated, make sure the proper category elements are selected and then rename the filter rule to the name by which you want to filter.
To apply these filters to your views, you can go to the View tab on the ribbon and then select Visibility/Graphics. Next, select the Filters tab (see Figure 9.21).
Once you have selected the Filters tab, click Add. This brings up the filters that you had created, so select the filters that apply to your project. Once the filters are loaded, you can turn on and off the filters and adjust line weights, colors, and patterns.
Mastering filter options will give you the ability to create your models with the standards that your office has developed over years of producing CAD drawings.
