Multi phase families

Hi there,

I am building my own window family, with the aim to manage the process of installing windows.

It has to host the actual window family which comes from a link with the window -manufacturing software, exchange data, etc.

Are there ways to integrate my family with my workflow of phases in the project?

I have an extensive set of phases, more or less for each constructive step.

It starts with the cavity in the wall, then the support structure, the acoustic insulation, the actual window, the sealing, the insultation etc.

I can think of a string of yes/no parameters which relate to the phases defined in the project…

Did anybody made something similar, not necessarily for a window, and can I have a look?

Kind regards,


I think Element.SetParameterValueByName May work for you here. Look at the windows phases (Element.Phases) and the values contained therein. You may need to feed it an element id for the set portion.
