At my work I have to create structure drawings for houses starting from an architectural model. So I split up the house into different structure walls, beams, structure floors, … all elements that can be prefabricated. Every element I give his own number by using the mark or comments field in the properties.
But what happens a lot that we have the exact same model house but in mirror formation or exact copies.
In case there is a mirror model I use his opposite model that I worked out and copy the file and mirror the whole house what works. But on a lot of sheets I create we use tags to represent the mark, comment info. In case it’s on a 3D view sheet the tags are not mirrored. So I have to replace them manually but also I need to rename some elements because in the mirrored file we have to give new nr’s to the elements.
So this all manual work that takes some time even if the global model is the same.
And for example once all structure models are worked out and there is a change I need to work on all the models to make the same change.
I was thinking if I could use links for my copied or mirrored models so I only have to work at one model if there is a change to be done.
But the big problem is that I cannot rename some elements on a linked model what I understand.
But I was wondering if there is no way to edit this tags on a linked model maybe by dynamo? Even the possibility to put extra information after the existing comment tag, mark would be great if it’s not possible to change it?
