Trying to create a new family of Duct Accessories in MEP and am using the tutorial for creating a flange family as a reference. Am at the point where I'm trying to set up the parameters so I can import the data from a .csv file but when I type in my text_file_lookup function in all I'm getting is an 'inconsistant units' messages or 'unable to parce....' and it crashes. Been going through it the last few days with a fine tooth comb and can't seem to find where im going wrong. the two files are attached and would really appreciate if someone could help me out, know it's something small but I just can't see it. And I have the .csv file sved in the the correct place already checked that.


Thanks Smile

Dont use lookuptables with duct accessories use type catalogs. Same idea just one is txt the other a csv. lookuptables are more for piping fittings and can be forced to work with pipe accessories, not duct though.


also i dont think lookuptables like integers being used in them. the other reason it cannot read is that there is nothing telling it what size the family should be.
