I want my storefront doors created as "Door - Curtain Wall" families to be functional within the door schedule.  I can't use the parameters that are in the other doors but under the "Fields" Category under editing the door schedule, it says "Select available fields from: Doors". I can't add the Curtain wall door parameters because curtain wall doors are actually walls, not doors.  How do I use the same parameters from the rest of my doors in curtain wall doors?

Fixed the problem.  I made the storefront door an actual door instead of a panel

If you put in a curtain wall door, they schedule because they are a door...you should not be putting a door into the curtain wall...

Yes they schedule, but they don't accept the same parameters as the rest of the actual doors.  It just has a mark value and that's it. No size, no anything.  By making it an actual door, it has everything - door type, frame type, size, material, etc.

We don't use the "type" parameter to scheule door sizes.  We use the opening parameters.  In storefornts, the doors are usually never "standard" so the opening size is correctly read.  We have added a "pair" parameter to our door schedule so that we divide the opening by two if they are a pair.  Other parameters such as frame / door / finish all schedule just fine.

 Could you please elaborate how to make the "pair" parameter divide the opening width in 2.

Sure ... I added two fields to my schedule:

  1. Pair - Project parameter - category doors - Y/N
  2. Calc Dr Width - calculated value - formula:  If( Pair, 0.5*Width,Width)

That's it.

 

I hide the reguar door with and since my width is really leaf width, I rename the Calc Dr Width to WIDTH.  I keep the pair column and it will say Y if it is a pair.... You could always hide that as well and add another calculated filed using the pair switch and showing an X if you want....

What RevitCity 07 was saying is that Revit's standard dimesion parameters for door families, which are hard coded in Revit (and cannot be changed), are not hard coded in the curtain wall panel door families. This makes scheduling door families and curtain wall door panels very difficult in the same schedule. Shared parameters may be the answer, but in my case it will require subtantial reworking in my standard door families. Does anyone have a sucessful work around? Why wouldn't Revit have the same hard coded parameters in both families?

I was incorrect in my last post. Curtain wall panel doors and door families both have the same, out of the box, paramters. The problem I had was the manufacturer, EFCO, did not model their Curtain Wall Panel doors as a curtain wall panel door family, so all of the necessary parameters were missing. That is the one danger of downloading free content - modeling errors.

Glad you reposted this.

 

By using the curtain wall doors, you are forced into setting your mullions to the correct spacing and modeling correctly.
