I'm using BIMLink to adjust parameters in a model... If a dimension ends up being zero, is there a way for me to have conditional formating to turn off visibility of a dimension with a zero value?
I don't think that's what I was meaning... If say Dimension between A + B is annotated... but dimension A to B = zero (0), then the whole dimension doesn't show... No dimension, no tick marks etc. I don't want an unused blank dimension causing confusion.
There is no way that I know of to do this automatically.
You can do a couple of things manually:
Override the dimension text using a trick like this:
Or you'd have to remove one of the dimension references by selecting the dimension and using the "Edit Witness Lines" tool.
Your problem is still a little unclear. Are you dimensioning between two objects, and having the distance come up as 0, and you want the dimension to disappear? There's not really a way of doing that.
Perhaps you could post an image of what you're trying to do, as well as the reason you want the dimension to not be visible.
Then the answer is no.
If the dimension were somehow an annotative part of the family itself, rather than a dimension added in the project environment, then maybe. You could create a fake "dimension" line and text in the family, and create a visibility parameter with a forumla that either checks or unchecks the box for visibility whenever the value is "0" or "not 0".
