Export Revit's Parameters

574 Views, 3 Replies

Anyone know why I can't export parameters with an underscore ( _ ) prefix to dwf file?  For example:  a revit parameter like this "_Amps" will not export to dwf file.

 

Thanks in advance,

Tam

Thanks for reply,

Attached is a Revit project file and a dwf file created from the revit.  If you open up the revit project, you will see that I have some Shared Project Parameters attached to the Specialty Equipment category, under the Electrical group.  There are two sets of parameters, they are exactly the same except one has the underscore character " _ " pre-fix.

 

Then if you open the dwfx file and select the Specialty Equipment family to view its properties, you will see that only the parameters without the underscore pre-fix show up.

 

Another thing that I noticed is, when you select the object in a 3D view, all the parameters are showing under the same group like in Revit.  But if you select the object in a 2D plan view, all the grouping are lost.  It would be much nicer if revit parameters grouping is preserved in all views.

 

Thanks much for your time,

Tam

Thank you for your feedback.

 

The problem you reported was confirmed as a publishing issue. I had logged a defect ADROTW-2011 against it.
