Example images of the project dashboard

Click on the headers to see the image of that part of the dashboard.The images are screenshots from the actual dashboard.

Number of models on the dashboard

This visual is placed here to offer a consistent experience between the model page and the project page. You are now looking at a single model, therefore this visual should show: 1

Number of  levels

The number of levels in this model.

Review all the Revit levels in this model and the parameter values in the drill down.

Level analysis

This visual shows the number of unique levels in the scanned Revit files of this project. The other visual "Number of levels in this model" only shows the levels in the selected model.

The drill down will allow you to do an analysis of the elevations and names of all the levels in all project files.

Number of sheets

The total number of sheets in this Revit model.

Number of BIM authors

This number is based upon the element parameters: CreatedBy and ModifiedBy.

Number of scans

This visual shows how many times this model has been scanned. Go to the drill down to see the details of each scan.

 

Imported DWG's

Imported DWG files can have a negative effect on the speed of Revit. Try to avoid importing DWG files into Revit. Linking DWG files has the same impact on speed. Consider putting this kind of information in a separate Revit file and linking this file.

Linked Revit Files

The number of linked Revit models is to be used as a quick check to see if this is within your expectations. In the drill down of this visual you will be able to see the details.

Model groups

Model groups, although very usefull, increase the file size of a Revit model and thus the performance, therefore if a model group is used more than 4 times it should be reviewed if this group could be turned into a Revit family.

Unused elements

Over the course of a project many changes are made to models which often leads to elements that were used before are not being used anymore. Unused elements means that the file size of the Revit model can be reduced and therefore the performance increased. This visual counts the number of family types that are marked by Revit as not being active.This means that the Revit Purge functionality will most likely find even more elements that are not being used. Currently elements from the Revit template file are not excluded from the count.

Inplace families

Inplace families can have a negative impact on the Revit files size and therefore on performance. Review in the drill down if there are inplace families that should be evaluated and or changed into a regular family.

User worksets

There is no correct number for the number of worksets, but from experience, Revit models with higher number of worksets typically are prone to practices that are not recommended but also models with only two worksets often require analysis. The purpose of this visual is to quickly find models that require scrutiny which does not imply that these models are bad.

Warnings across all project files

Revit warnings have a severity level assigned to them by DAQS.IO. The severity has been set based upon the estimated impact this warning has on the information model.

Classification codes code NOT filled in.

The percentage indicates how many elements still have to be provided with a Classification code. So the goal for this visual is to reach 0%.

Number of Elements

This visual shows the number of elements in all the Revit models in this project. The number itself only gives a small indication of the project size. The main purpose of this visual is to drill down on the elements in the models themselves.

Number of views

The number of views have an impact on the size of a Revit model and therefore also the performance. It is recommended to remove views that are not being used. Views that are not on a sheet or used for specific exports are considered as not being used.

Views NOT on sheet

The number of views have an impact on the size of a Revit model and therefore also the performance. It is recommended to remove views that are not being used. Views that are not on a sheet or used for specific exports are considered as not being used.

No view template assigned

Views placed on a sheet without a view template assigned, haves the potential risk of displaying inconsistent information.

Number of rooms

This is the total, of all the rooms, in all the Revit models in this project in any condition.

Number of placed rooms of all models

This is the number of rooms that are placed in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be the same as the "Number of rooms"

Number of NOT placed rooms of all models

This is the number of rooms that are NOT placed in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be zero

Number of unbounded rooms of all models

This is the number of rooms that are placed, but are unconstrained by a boundary, in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be zero.

Number of redundant rooms of all models

This is the number of rooms that are placed in the same location as another room, in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be zero

Important to know is that a room is marked redundant when two or more rooms occupy the same place in the same Revit model but not when these rooms are in different Revit models.

Spaces

Number of spaces

This is the total, of all the spaces, in all the Revit models in this project in any condition.

Number of placed spaces in all models

This is the number of spaces that are placed in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be the same as the "Number of spaces"

Number of NOT placed spaces in all models

This is the number of spaces that are NOT placed in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be zero.

Number of unbounded spaces in all models

This is the number of spaces that are placed, but are unconstrained by a boundary, in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be zero.

Number of redundant spaces in all models

This is the number of spaces that are placed in the same location as another space, in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be zero.

Important to know is that a room is marked redundant when two or more rooms occupy the same place in the same Revit model but not when these rooms are in different Revit models.

Without data, perception is reality!
