I created a new Generic-Face based family (which I changed to be a Parking family category).  Within this new family I brought in the basic Revit 90 degree parking family.  I created a new instance array parameter within this new parking family so that within a project I can easily drag the reference line of this new parking family to create long string of parking spaces very quickly (at 9ft increments).  The family itself works as it should.

However, what is the best way to report the number/count of these individual parking spaces within a schedule created in the project?

Upon initial creation of the parking count schedule, it shows the new parking family, but does not show how many parking spaces are within that family.  I can create a shared parameter to report the number of parking spaces within each string, but that shared parameter does not coincide with the other standard individual Revit parking space counts within the project so that I can get a tally of total parking spaces (including individual and strings of parking spaces).

Appreciate the help.

If the nested family is set to shared, it can be scheduled and counted in the schedule.

Thanks for the reply.  I see where to change to the nested family to be shared, but once it's brought into the project what needs to happen so that the schedule reports the quantity of the nested parking spaces of the parking family?

I don't immediately see a way to do a count per host.  You will be scheduling the 90 degree parking family.  You might be able to place a shared family in the 90 degree family that is set through the host and then use this parameter to sort your schedule but you will have to experiment with that.  

 

Let us know what you achieve.

Thanks again.  I'll keep digging.

 

This is where I am at the moment.  As you can see, there's a single parking space (standard family) and a parking string with five parking spaces, but the string of course shows in the schedule as one, not five.  I created a shared parameter which will shows the 5 spaces, but it's under a separate column of course and won't tally up with the individual spaces.

...it dawned on me later in the day that there was likely not too many situations where I needed to have a schedule that shows both individual parking families as well as my new multi-parking space family.  In all cases for our current model we show strings of 10-30 parking spaces which work well with my new family.

To schedule the number of spaces in the parking string, I simply created and scheduled that shared parameter showing how many spaces are in each string and get a grand total at the bottom of the schedule.  Works perfectly.
