I have doors that are hosted on walls. The parameter I have embedded within each wall type has a letter and number. For sake of conversation, say I have door 62 hosted by Wall Type A20.
I have head, jamb, and sill details drawn and placed on sheets already and would like to link them to the head/jamb/sill detail columns on my schedule based on the type of wall the doors are hosted in (type A28, A20, etc). How do I do this?
It will be very similar to your Fire Rating graph. Get the Wall Type from the Host Instance, then read the three Detail from the wall type of the wall, then plug them in the door accordingly for instance parameters.
Either use separate parameters, or yes you’ll need an if statement. Again, I believe the fire rating graph I gave you has a design script if statement for hour rating. I’d assume you could do the same based on either door type name, or some additional parameters. Without knowing how your doors and walls are parametrized, it makes it a little hard to help with specifics.
I think I am going to echo a bit of @bvs1982 and suggest that you dig into your door families and types. I know “my” approach isn’t applicable to everyone, but I think you need a better setup for Door Types to really make something like this work smoothly. I think you know how to do the parameter transfer from the post I mentioned, but your parameter setup is what’s holding you up in my opinion.
So here we are again…
To add to @SeanP comments, and i’ll repeat myself, you really bit more off than you can chew. Also it looks like you overcomplicate things. In my opinion you don’t even need that
many Parameters for the detail (i might go into more detail tomorrow).
I’ll put you in the right direction;
Those parameters aren’t type parameters
