Parameters and the valuable data they contain make up one of the more powerful functions at the core of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Autodesk Revit products. In this class, we will cover parameters and their many uses in Revit in detail. This information is of special interest to MEP engineers and users who will learn how working with parameters in Revit affects project workflow, construction documentation, and the transfer of valuable data.
- Create, organize, and manage a shared parameters file
- Use parameters in all types of schedules
- List the various types of Revit parameters and explain how they affect your documents, workflow, and time
- Effectively use parameters in the family and project environment
