I want to create a family that have a parametric array, just like a brise-soleil. If I want to model a Brise-solail, i want that every lamella have the same distance, so if i lenghten brise-solail, I have to grow number of lamellas. It is possible in Revit? I try but have some errors.

Forgive me ignorance but i have no idea what those terms refer to. Could you include a sketch? I'd say it would most definitely be possible.

OK, This is the quuestion! In Array you have t specify Distance between grid, and number of istance. I have just create a parameter for number of istances. My idea is to create a parameter for total distance, and so Revit have to calculate distance between istance just like Total Distance/Number of Istance. But So I have not a dimensions that I can to associate to this parameter. P.S. Excuse me for my poor english.

Yea, the tutorial works because the Width and Height parameters are numeric within a window family.

How do you achieve the same inside a curtain wall panel family?

 

thank you

Mr. Spot,

A thousand thanks for the Arrays and Nested tutorial!! I have to build several lighting fixture families made of multiple units whose quantity varies depending on length and this was just what I needed to build them. Works like a charm. I'm really grateful to you for taking the time to put this together as it's so hard to find documentation for these kinds of things. Now if only we could array along an irregular curve...
