A Parameter By Any Other Name

A Revit User Group Discussion
Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Free and all are welcome. Lunch is provided by Ideate, Inc., so please RSVP!


Project parameters, key parameters, family parameters, shared parameters, parameter groups, and GUIDs – it can be overwhelming to dive into the world of Revit data. A well-organized data structure will bring about a higher quality handover document and reduce scheduling headaches down the road. You can’t create custom content without first understanding the Revit data structure for each kind of parameter. In this presentation, Glynnis Patterson, Director of Software Development with Ideate, Inc. will shed some light on the world of Revit parameters and present tips and tricks learned from the trenches of software development. Learn when and how to use a shared parameter and when a project parameter would be preferred.

Who Should Attend
BIM Managers and anyone tasked with managing Revit schedule data or Revit family creation.
