Is there a way to display the HW Group within the door tag? I'm working on a new door tag for our office, and they have requested that HW Group #s be displayed, so the door installer knows which hardware group to install.
I find type parameters (width, Mark, Manufacturer, Etc) but no Instance parameters (HW Group, door materials, etc)
Would I need to make a shared parameter for this?
I can schedule HW Groups, so shouldn't I be able to tag them as well?
Yes, you would need to create an instance shared parameter for the hardware groups, and add a label with that parameter in your door tags.
Thanks for the response! Does that mean I'll be using the existing HW#s from the doors, or am I creating a new parameter that is called "Hardware Group" but is separate from the exisintg #s
I.E. can I retroactively load these tags into projects and have hardware #s show up?
Well, no, you have to start using this new shared parameter from now oh, entering the correspondent information for each door, either in the model, or in the schedule, but you will need to do it in every project. It will not populate itself in other projects.
Thanks again. It seems strange that this is not possible, as Door tags can display door marks, which are also instance parameters... and inherent to the default RVT doors.
I enjoy using Revit, and think it is a great alternative to CAD, but there's still so many things that could be implemented that just seem to make sense.
