Someone over at bim forum asked if there is a way to set Pilaster Depth equal to the Depth of a grade beam.
The simple answer is yes.
There are many ways to do this but the simplest way would be to change the grade beam from top justification to bottom and then just get and set parameters….
This example you will need to “get” the depth of the grade beam, which is a type parameter from a loadable family and set it to the pilaster ht, which is an instance parameter of a loadable family. How do you get a type parameter from a loadable family?
Well… take note that….
The “All elements of Family type” node selects all the Loadable Family INSTANCES and therefore you could only “get” that family’s instance parameters.
The “Family Types” node selects all the loadable family TYPES and therefore you could only “get” that family’s……………..TYPE……… parameters.
See the image and good luck getting and setting type and instance parameters to eachother!
