Structural Columns

Hi there,
I am trying to do something I thought would be fairly simple but it seems not.

What I want to do is collect all columns in a model and report the Revit family parameter values , namely the “b” and “h” which are type parameters.

Is this possible?

It is possible and indeed simple.
Let’s see what you’ve done, you’re mostly overlooking something simple.

Hello @Andrew_Harp ,

You have to get the type from the instance first, and then get the parameter from the type. All you need is Element.GetParameterValueByName.


That’s great thanks!
I was missing the Type. That was it.

Thanks again.
