Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding and understanding labels (parameters), part of Revit Families Workshop.
In this lesson, we're going to add parameters, or in family language labels …to our dimensions. This part takes some thinking. …Think about how flexible you would want your family to be in the model. …For example, if you have a cabinet. Would you want the length and the width …to be parametric? Meaning, adjustable for the user. …You would, if you have a piece of cold molding, would you like to use it to be …able to specify different sizes? I think you would, you can make a family …as flexible as you want. Just try to think it through first. …The objective of this exercise is to create parametric labels, then we're …going to append the labels to our dimension.…
Open the file you saved called Cove, and follow along. …The first thing I'm going to do is zoom in to this one foot dimension, I'm …going to select it. From my label drop down, I can add a Parameter. …Go ahead and select that. Now, welcome to the Parameters Property dialog. …You're going to see a lot of this if you're going to be doing families. …
