Revit versus FF&E's

Furniture and furnishings play an essential role in the use and operation of buildings. In addition to contributing to how users perceive and feel about a building, they are often necessary to achieve the functional requirements programmed for interior spaces. In essence, appropriate furniture and furnishings reinforce the design concept of the building. As well, functional and aesthetic FF&E solutions can enhance the appeal of the overall interior environment. The Architect’s Handbook of Professional Practice

Interior spaces and Revit are like two peas in a pod. This Revit Recess post will introduce Revit's capabilities for tagging FF&E's in different views using the Keynote command. As per the image below, a very simple 2-bedroom apartment was created.

We can create a custom Keynote file either through Notepad or Excel (There are other programs too) where we assign a Keynote Number to a FF&E object.

Should we need to tag the Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment, we can use the Keynote Tag command and choose a dedicated description or specification.

We have the ability to either show the Keynote number, or Keynote description in the Keynote tag.

Keynote tags can even be used in a 3D view.

The beauty of the Keynote functionality is that only the placed keynotes will show once the Keynote legend is placed on your sheet.
