I ♥ Parameters
Project parameters, key parameters, family parameters, shared parameters, parameter groups, and GUIDs – it can be overwhelming to dive into the world of Revit data. A well-organized data structure will bring about a higher quality handover document and reduce scheduling headaches down the road. You can’t create custom content without first understanding the Revit data structure for each kind of parameter.
• Understand the common pitfalls of poorly organized Revit data
• Learn when and how to use a shared parameter and when a project parameter or schedule key would be preferred.
• Understand how to best manage parameters for use across linked files.
• Identify common strategies for resolving poorly managed shared parameters.
In this presentation, Glynnis will shed some light on the world of Revit parameters, discuss the usage of the NBS Shared parameter file, and present tips and tricks learned from the trenches of software development.
