    I've encountered this. It's a function of Mechanical Settings -> Hidden Line -> Outside Gap. Change that to 0" and it should go away. At least that's what has worked for me in the past.

    I'm definitely a proponent of this workflow. I've got several planned face-based nested families for my equipment. I made up a 6-degrees-of-freedom rig that I can host them to so I can control the...

    Yep. I've moved to this system for applying system colors as well. As a bonus, it acts as a check of system connectivity and forces me to create the logical systems.

    Good to hear! The discipline will bite you if you're not careful. I feel compelled to clarify that it isn't the halftone that makes the color disappear, but the fact that those elements are treated...

    Is your Model Display set to Hidden Line? That's what it sounds like if material hatches show up, but the solid color won't.

    As far as I understand it, Revit imports images at 72 dpi no matter what. See this thread for a couple of suggestions:

    Oof. I resolved it by doing a clean uninstall and reinstalling Revit. Not thrilling, but didn't take too long. The Autodesk support member I talked too said that sometimes it's a problem with the...

    Can do. I've got a call with Autodesk this morning,

    1a. Yes and no. In the one file, where the duct fittings were not working and I wan't able to load families, I've had a second person in there...

    Oh what a joy! I'm going to reach out to our reseller and see if they have any insights. Glad to know it's not an isolated incident.

    Thank you, Aaron.
  10. "Failed to apply family parameters." - Revit 2019.2

    So over the last two days I've been getting an irritating error masquerading as a warning:

    An error occurred in family "Rectangular Elbow - Mitered" that cannot be automatically resolved.
    Error...

    You can't. A number field only displays a number and cannot be formatted as a text string. I really (really, really​) wish there were a way, but there isn't a way to do it currently. Dynamo could do...

    Okay Tannar, you've piqued my curiosity. How are you using subcategories for your Mechanical Equipment (other than for clearance zones)?

    I am going to make a few assumptions here. (1) you are placing the symbol directly onto you view in the original file, and (2) you are viewing the symbols using the "By Linked View" option for the...

    So, just to be clear, in the original file, the symbols scale with the view as expected? And then, when linking that file into another model, the linework of the symbols does not scale properly but...

    There is, unfortunately, no way to do this natively in Revit. It will not concatenate parameters, or convert numbers to text strings. If you are only using the Model parameter in a schedule though,...

    I can say from experience that mapping a GP to every type of family in use in a project is an absolute pain. I've done it, and I've regretted it (though not for doors). Unfiltered/unsorted/unitemized...

    Instead of returning 12'-0" if neither condition is true, define the result at 90. Try adding

    if(Edge Angle Left = 90, 12'-0", 0'-0")

    to the end.

    You can do it. The family that cuts must be face based though, which can be a pain to get working properly. I think there are some threads around here about it.

    I'm curious, is there any reason that the reporting dimension shouldn't be "hosted" to the horizontal ref plane that's aligned to the ref level? It seem's like that would allow the OP to use the...
