What kind of an instance paramater needs to be implemented in order to account the host wall type in the door schedule?


Thank you

The host wall of a door is known to Revit internally but not exposed to the user in any way.  It can't be scheduled using out of the box tools.  Usign the Revit API a custom application could be written to access this information.  it does take programming knowledge to access and use the door's host wall information.

Host Wall and Host Wall Type-based data are among the types of parameter data that Ideate BIMLink supports - see image.  Grabbing the area of the wall in which a window is hosted is a similar type of task.
