SheetCreationTools is a new Revit addin added to dpStuff Revit Utils 2016. It allows you to control how you batch-create new sheets in Revit in 2 different ways. There are 2 Options: “Pick Titleblock” and “Existing Sheet Template”. In “Pick Titleblock” you can batch create sheets in sequence by specifying the sheet amount, starting sequence letter(s), starting sequence number and selecting a titleblock family. In “Existing Sheet Template” you can use an existing sheet as a template for a new batch of sheets. You have an option of copying legends and schedules from the template sheet which will put them in the same position on the new sheet, and  you can use template sheet number as a starting number +1 for the new sheet sequence.

1) “Existing Sheet Template” Option.
SheetCreationTools Option 1
In this option you can create a series of sheets based on an existing sheet as a template. This option is useful when you want you have a sample sheet laid out with schedules and legends already placed in correct locations. You can select “Copy Legends and Schedules” to copy them from the template. If “Use Template Sheet Number” is selected – the starting letter and number for the template will become starting number for the new sequence of sheets. You can skip that however and specify other starting number in “Starting Letter/Number”. “Count” obviously specifies how many new sheets will be created in sequence. Lastly you need to pick an existing sheet that will be used as template from the Sheet list and then hit “Create Sheets” to create new sheets.

1) “Pick Titleblock” Option.
SheetCreationTools Option 2
This option is useful if you simply want to add a bunch of sheets to the project in sequence. Very straightforward – just specify starting letter and number and specify the number of sheets. Lastly select a titleblock family and hit “Create Sheets”.
