    The Revit Maller Complexity Setup Wizard

    So for those that don't follow twitter or were not at RTC last week, an add-in was developed by @BoostYourBIM to scale complexities in a family. Obviously it was created for Aaron. He posted on twitter that one of his new doors had;Score: 204 and Nested Score: 668

    For the fun of it, I downloaded the add-in to see where my doors compared. For my double door, I got Score: 71, Nested Score: 171
    Aaron's doors that I based my doors on originally was 65 and 115

    You can download for yourself here.

    Adding on to it (LOL), the "Scale" is supposed to be based on my Door-Single-Swing-WH component, as they (Kelly Cone) figured that was a "fairly standard, simple component." So they used that as the basis for what a "normal family" of mine would have in terms of nested components, and parameters, and number of items IN the parameters. At the time, the Biparting Telescoping Sliding Door (Curtain Panel version) was the most intense, of the ones Kelly Tested.

    The doors that Kelly has are the older v4 Beck Doors, which are the ones that were shared here back in 2014.

    The v4 Door-Single-Swing-WH component scored: 91, 178
    The v4 Door-Double-Sliding-Commercial-Telescoping-CW scored: 148, 694

    You have to keep in mind, the goal ISNT to get larger numbers. Its just a (hilarious) metric based on the number of components and formulae i like to use in my components. Regardless, here are the v6/v7 "replacements" of the components Kelly tested:

    The v6/7 08-Door-Single-Swing-WH component scored: 132, 654
    The v6/7 08-Door-Double-Sliding-Telescoping-CW scored: 204, 668

    For giggles, im running it on my new Window and Millwork libraries as well, but i dont think those are all that complex, so i dont think they should have very extreme values.

    EDIT: Some more, just for fun:

    Highest tallied Cabinet (What Parallax calls a Base-47): 154, 390
    Highest tallied Window (What Parallax calls a Triple-Triple): 117, 831

    Highest tallied "Nested Score:" 08-Window(GM)-Double-Double-WH: 98, 912


    The Tallied Nested's arent very valid numbers, though. I dont think its looking at the differences between "in use" and not in use. The Window components currently have ALL of the Shared/Nested family options loaded in, since theyre going in to projects where the shared goodies werent loaded in the template. BEcause of that, those windows are (literally) 19MB, because of different Types that have bunches of nested families called out.

    Either way you slice it, pretty damn hilarious. Id love to run the entire library. Maybe once my VM's are back up and running, i can do that.

    It's going to be a funny thread, I guess.

    My score:

    door nested: 210, 216
    door nested: 206, 642
    door sliding: 192, 407
    generic model: 99, 104
    structural column: 2531, 180 ( a lot of parameters, many of them driven by complex formulas)
    mass: 121, 172

    I love so much that this is an actual thing

    My original door families all scored ~50 with a nested score of ~33

    My Aaron-inspired single door scored 61 & 494

    What is this, the new RFO meme...
    My complexity is bigger than yours!

    At which point we probably need a "neener" emoticon.

    This family has 1050 (one thousand fifty) parameters.

    I think we should see metric for some Marcello's families. I remember some complex crane with a lot of rotating elements. What score should we expect?

    Just to make sure everyone knows... in 2016 Revit now organizes nested families alphabetically in the project so we may not need to preload every shared/nested family in order. Yay!
