Everyday Uses of Global Parameters
Autodesk University
Collapse Expand


Global parameters have been around for a few releases, and with each release they improve. Yet most users still haven’t started taking advantage of the benefits they bring to a project. In this session, we will discuss ways to utilize global parameters not only to control the model, but also to have the model control details without having to use the align and lock tool. We will also discuss how to utilize information from a linked model to have control elements in the host model. We will examine curb heights, structural framing offsets, top-of-wall locations, and more. This session will share examples relevant to both architectural and structural disciplines, so there will be something for everyone.

Key Learnings

  • Learn how to utilize global parameters not only in modeling practice, but in detailing as well
  • Learn how to extract data from given modeled elements and push the data into other aspects of the model
  • Understand why having global parameters in the office template can benefit the entire staff
  • Learn how to use global parameters to maintain consistency in a project
