Best way to load multiple parameters
« on: May 07, 2016, 06:52:06 PM »
How do you load multiple parameters in a family? curious to know other ways to check my own process. out of the box revit loads shared parameters one by one and is not efficient. thanks

I use journals. See the following post.

See the following message (in that thread) for an example, I set up, you can run to see how they work.

No, not complicated; it's vbscript. Simple. Start by downloading the example I linked to and run it. If you like what you see, open the example journal file and scroll down to the bottom (the stuff on top is all the support functions I created to help me do the stuff at the bottom) and see how I did it.
