Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Modifying parameters and creating a jamb, part of Revit Families Workshop.
In this lesson, we're going to switch around some parameters, add a formula, …and create a door frame. Now, we can start getting into the weeds …with this stuff. The first thing about a door frame, you …have to watch out for is the opening. The predefined parameter for width should …actually be the rough opening. Although we cannot modify the parameters …that Revit presets in the template, we can add a formula. …Plus Rivet gives enough other predefined parameters to accommodate us. …The objective of this exercise is to set the correct parameters. …Add a mathematical expression, albeit a remedial one, and add a door jamb.…
Open the door family and follow along. The first thing I want to do is take a …look at the width. The width is reading the actual rough …opening, the face of the wall. We need to change that. …So, on the Properties panel. Let's click the Family Types button. …As we can see, the width is 3 feet 0. We want that to be consistently 3 feet 0. …This is what the end user is going to type in. …
