No. Some parameters are kind of hard coded into the families, and cannot be changed.

you can.

follow instructions as per the link below (basically editing a .txt file (uniformatClassifications.txt file)




worked for me. i had concrete piles with the assembly description as steel pipes (for some reason)

i closed my revit sessionI, went into the aformentioned .txt file and changed it to concrete.


apologies if i'm talking out of my left ear and misinterpreted what you mean.
