    Tagging Linked door families individually

    I have a model with 3 doors linked into a host model a number of times. My client requires individual door numbers for each instance.

    Has anyone done this? I assume it's done all the times for linked apartment types etc in high rise models for example.

    The tag tool will recognize linked file's doors but it will display the value stored in the door in the link. You won't be able to assign numbers to them from the host. The Mark parameter provides a unique value for each door while the Type Mark parameter provides a common value for all doors of a given type (Door Type A for example). You need a tag that displays the Mark parameter to see a unique value for each door.

    The mark parameter is unique for each door, but if it is unique in a link that is copied around you can't tag them individually. You might be able to "fake" something in with a prefix parameter, but it will require manual entry, careful coordination, and a custom tag and schedule with a combined parameter.

    When we use links for units we have the entry door tagged as a door in the main model, and then a separate door schedule for each unit type.
