We normally include a reference to jamb, sill, and head details on our door and window schedules. How can I do this in a Revit schedule and is it Parametric? If I move the detail from one sheet to another will the change reflect in the door & window schedules? Maybe this is a wishlist item?

If you've created your door and window schedules using the legend component then you can't place parametric references to details in the legend view. If you've created your door and window schedules by taking actually elevations of the elements then you can associate parametric sections/callouts to reference your appropriate details.

What I've done is I've added a Field to the schedule called JAMB. I've located this parameter in the Type Parameters of all doors. This doesn't seem to help much though. I still have to key in the Jamb detail reference by hand and if I have to move the detail to another sheet the sheet number in the schedule doesn't update parametriically. I'm not sure what you mean by "taking elevations of the elements." If I try creating a Door Legend in drafting view (by draging doors into the view) I get the following error message "Can't create this kind of element in this view in the current mode."

Sorry i thought you were referring to a graphic schedule. If you doing it that way, we just have a parameter for frame type and give it an appropriate code. We then just have a sheet or two with all the frame details on them. There shouldn't really be a need to reference what sheet there on if they are all located on a couple of sheets...

Frame Type is 1 parameter. I need 3, one for each detail (head, jamb, and sill). I'm also still not clear on how to link a detail number to the frame type (or any other) parameter aside from typing it in manually in which case the detail reference would not be parameteric.

There is no way to have this JAMB parameter automically link to the detail sheet number... If it was a graphic schedule you could just place a detail section, tick reference other view then pick your detail of your jamb, sill etc... This would then be automatic if moved. Do you plan on moving these details around a lot? As typically when we place details they stay where they've been placed... I would add new type parameters for head, sill, jamb and reference the details in the schedule (no this is not automatic), but unless you are going to be moving them around all the time it should suffice. As mentioned above the only method to have the links automatically update would be using a graphic schedule made of actual elevations of the windows... HTH.

If I add a head detail parameter to the window family can that be linked to a detail callout? So that when I change the detail callout on the text schedule it changes the detail callout on the graphic schedule?

SUPER WISH LIST ITEM!!!  Having to check these detail references by hand is old school and annoying! We have large teams and its hard to control details moving and such.   Thanks for asking the question!

Bump/ Agreed/ Still a wish list item.

Can't believe we are trialing 2014 and there is still no way to place a live detail reference in a schedule! So inadequate!

Try using autoLink by Revolution design. You type in the link manually the first time, it latches on and will update from there on out. It works in schedueles and to link to views and details in linked files.

Thanks NKramer. Looks like a decent solution.

This feature should be included in Revit though. Seems like a massive oversight that it isn't.

It is interesting but NOT automatic.  You have to tell it to update.

It depends on your settings. I have it set to update at every save and it updates when you print as well. So yes, it is not automatic in the truest sense of the word, but it does update when it counts.

 

-PS: Whats up with the reply box and scrolling sideways? Then it doenst want to scroll back... Odd
