Revit MEP users have had access to Embedded Schedules for a while now. However, the Revit 2013 OneBox version gives everyone the ability to easily utilise Embedded Schedules.  Have you used them yet?

Embedded Schedules are available for the following Categories: Rooms, spaces, duct systems, piping systems, or electrical circuits (do you know of any others??)

Architecturally, it makes the most sense to use a Room Schedule or a Space Schedule.  If you opt to use a Space Schedule, this means you will need to add Spaces to your model (Subscription users may want to take advantage of the Space Naming utility).  Once that is done, you can then Schedule Rooms IN the Space Schedule (first image below), and then create an Embedded Schedule for Doors, for example.  This will show you which Doors are in which Rooms.

Check out the images below.  In the third one, I use a calculated text value of “” to ‘indent’ the Embedded Door Schedule, to make things a little bit easier to understand.

A nice little benefit of adding Spaces is that you can also take advantage of Zones (HVAC Zones).  Architectural users may re-appropriate Zones as a way to sort and group Spaces when doing a multi-building, single file RVT model.

Pre-2013 OneBox RAC users can add Embedded Schedules in RME2012 and then re-open in RAC, as per:

Embedded Schedules allow you to display both Room or Space data AND Data on Components that are living in those Rooms or Spaces.  Quite powerful!  They are technically only allowed in Revit MEP, not in Revit Architecture…


If you using RAC and you want to use an Embedded Schedule:

  1. Open your RAC RVT in Revit MEP (if you are a Suite user, you probably already have it installed, otherwise you can install a Trial)
  2. Add an Embedded Schedule (this feature shows up as an extra tab on the Schedule creation / properties dialog for Rooms and Spaces)
  3. Ensure that you format it correctly, because RAC won’t allow you to make any changes to the ’embedded’ part of the Schedule.
  4. Save, and re-open in RAC.
  5. Your Embedded Schedule is still present in Revit Architecture:
