So all pipe fittiing have an angle to them under their properties. But how do I export this property into a pipe fitting schedule? Ive looke through all schedule properties but I dont see it. Please advise, thanks!

Unfortunately, that parameter in not directly accessible for scheduling. You will have to create a Shared Parameter (Angle type) and add it to each of your applicable Fitting Families. This can be an arduously repetitive task, but at least it's easy. You just have to add your Shared Parameter (as an Instance parameter) and assign the formula "= Angle" to each Family.
I believe that there are add-ins that can make this mass-application of a Shared Parameter very simple, but I am not very knowledgeable about those. You can search this forum to find more info on those. >Here< is a thread in the Architecture forum about Parameter Jerk, but this is for 2012. There may be a 2013 version available as well. Even with this, I believe you'll have to go through as set the formula manually.
First of all, are you in the model or the family? Second of all whenever I select Shared Parameter it greys everything else out and also there is no way for me to set it as "Angle Type" (there is no option for that anywhere...so I dont know what you are talking about there. Also when I put "= Angle" into the formula (in the family model) it states that it creates a circular chain of references. So if you know how this works please be more specific, because none of your steps worked at all for me. Thanks
Alright, let me elaborate:
Your Shared Parameter had now been created.
You can now schedule this Family's Angle using your Shared Parameter.
If you would like any more explanation or info, just ask!
actually I spoke too soon. The Fitting Angle paramete is now schedulable, however there is nothing populating in that category. I put in "=Angle" like you said and I didnt get an error message but its still not working properly. Any ideas?
