    R2 Global Parameters

    Just wanted to start a thread on the new Global Parameters in 2016 R2. What's possible with them? It seems to be one of the more powerful additions to Revit in recent memory.

    I look at them like what Parameters are for families. GPs are to the project. The possibilities are almost endless.

    I'm really excited about GPs but don't know exactly why yet I've just got to get my head around their creation and use possibilities

    Off the top of my head, I am thinking Code enforcement for clearances... lots of things in groups or arrays...

    Yeah, i'm thinking you could tie the visibility of ADA clearances in doors to a global parameter so you don't have to turn them off in each instance.

    Global Parameters will be a great thing.... eventually. The trouble is- for something like Accessibility, Door Clearances, and so on- you need to manually tie each instance of the door TO the Global Parameter. There is not yet functionality for them to be tied to Type Parameters, which is unfortunate.

    For the Structural Engineers there could be a value for Slab Thickness, then tie that to the Z offset value, if the slab thickness changes it would only be a change in a single location. I agree with Aaron it will be nice when the capability is applied to type parameters.


    Side note Aaron can you remove your Skype line in your profile, runs across the screen and blocks text. That is of course assuming your text is worth reading

    Done. I didnt even know that was in my profile. Must be there from years ago. And wow... The board asks for ICQ, AIM, MSN, and Skype? Like, one of those is still relevant, i think? Are ICQ, AIM, and MSN even still around? MSN messenger was absorbed in to Skype, wasnt it? I guess AIM is still around. I havent seen ICQ since college...
