I have two heating coils in an air handling unit family. I created two shared parameters "Heating Coil 1" &
"Heating Coil 2". How can I show them in one row in a schedule.
Can this be done?
Solved! Go to Solution.
This is not directly possible - a schedule will contain only a single parameter per column and a single instance of a family can never be listed twice in the same schedule. There is one method to accomplish this: Create a separate nested family for the heating coil. This family must be Shared and loaded into the AHU family. Don't hesitate to ask if you need a detailed or step-by-step explanation.
Thank you for verifying that for me.
>This family must be Shared and loaded into the AHU family.
What do you mean by shared?
In the family editor, under Home tab » Category and Parameters, there is a parameter at the bottom named "Shared". When a shared family is nested within another family that is loaded into a project, each instance of that shared family can be scheduled as an individual element. In order to transfer the desired information from the host family to the nested family, you will have to link the parameters between the nested and host family.
There are two classifications for parameters in Revit: 1) Shared, 2) Project/Family. Depended on where you create the parameter from (schedule, family editor or within a project) a Shared Parameter can show up in Schedules or Tags while the Project/Family Parameters can only show up in the Properties palette. There is a workflow process to create Shared Parameters via a Revit generated TXT file.
And....'yeah that too' to what CADastrphe said.
Okay...I'm going to try that. So I should have 3 families?
2. Heating Coil1
3. Heating Coil2
Should I do this...
"Heating Coil2" loaded into "Heating Coil1" loaded into "Ahu".
"Heating Coil1" & "Heating Coil2" loaded into "Ahu".
You only need two families: Heating Coil loaded into AHU. There will be two instances of the Heating Coil family within the AHU family.
Good day to all the masters here in revit...
this is my first time to post here i hope this is the correct discussion group or forum for the autodesk revit...
anyway...my question regarding shared parameter in one field?
situation is im trying to make a structural tag in regards to our office standard...and pattern of composition
but i wanted to make a tag in which i just fill the information with myself...not automatic...
but what happens is that everytime i try to put in
parameter 1 - comments
parameter 2 - comments
parameter 3 - comments
*all on edit LABEL during TAG FAMILY editing
then i try to tag another one with the same category...what happens is that it is the same that i tried to tag from the first one...
is there a way..where i could make every tag unique without duplicating..?
i hope somebody can help me...or redirect me to the correct discussion...i just think that the revit edit label parameters are just limited...or maybe ihave to write a new GUID (which i do not know how to) for a new parameter..
It sounds like what you need to use is a Multi-Category Tag. This particular type of Tag can target an element from almost any Category. You will also have to create Shared Parameters to add to your Tag, and then in the Project, you can add those Shared Parameters to all elements at once using 'Project Parameters'. If you need any more info, don't hesitate to ask.
