    material tag ?

    I am trying to create material schedule with material tag. I am having trouble trying to tag non element with material tag example reveal, model line etc. Is there any way that you can tag non elements with materail tag?

    A model line does not have a material, so a material tag is not going to be able to tag that. Same goes for a reveal, that's basically just empty space, so does not have a material.

    Hey Hoangtin, to follow on from Robin's post, it appears as if you're drawing in a CAD fashion . . . with lines, etc.

    You have two ways to work in Revit:

    1. With the model, and you input the data into the elements, such as finishes and other parameters. The tag then just displays the previously input data, such that a wall with a brick material, that ALREADY has a brick material parameter associated with the wall, will get tagged and the tag will display the material, just 'data mining' whats there, in this case 'brick'.

    2. In drafting views. In this case, you can make detail components and assign parameters to them too. But you may need custom tags to 'mine' the data you've input.

    In both cases, you can use keynotes for a previously input list of data that can be used as a text note pointing to an an element and is not data-mining 3D or 2D detail components, if you don't want. See more at this link:
