Approach to enable linking of Family Parameters

Project Parameters are available for linking with dRofus Items. Family Parameters can not be linked with dRofus Items.

Create Parameters:

  • Creating Project Parameters within the applicable Revit Categories.

  • Use the exact same names as the Family parameters

Family Types are connected with different Revit Categories, that can have different sets of parameters. For that reason will not all parameters be available in the general “Item ↔︎ Revit Family” configuration. 'Sub' configurations can be used to link parameters that are connected to different categories.

Use the "+" button to create 'sub' configurations:
