I am trying to array rebar in a footing, but I can't apply a parameter to control the number of bars in the array.  When I create the array and the right-click on the array number, "edit label" is grayed out and I can't click it.  Am I missing something?  How do I apply the parameter to control the array number?

 

Thanks

I think you can only add a lable to an array in a family.  Secondly, why are you using array for rebar?  The only time that we use array for rebar is when the bars stay perpendicular on a radius.  You should just be able to set the max spacing, number of bars, or the spacing and number of bars...

Are you trying to create a footing family or using the footing tool in the project?
REVIT Structure takes care of adding rebar to footings, slabs, columns etc without doing a manual array.
The attached image shows what was capable in REVIT Structure 2008.

I was trying to get the array to read a parameter from a footing family that would control the number of bars in the footing.  Ideally this would be done in the footing family itself, but I thought I read somewhere that it is not possible to place rebar in the family editor environment and because of that I was attempting this in the project environment.  I know that when you place a single bar in a concrete element you can specify whether it is single, or the number of bars, numbers of bars with spacing, etc. but this method will not update based on a parameter correct?  Otherwise, it would have to be updated for each footing instance.

 

dgcad - are you referring to the reinforcement extensions?
