Is there a way to have a window family with constant window panel width that adds up?

Example, I have a window family that has 2 panels with a width of 600mm

Can I create a parameter that can make my window family from 2 panels to 6 panels?

If it can be possibe, please tell me how.

 

Thank you!!!

Parameters are just text/numbers unless they actually control something.  To do what you want, you will need a family that has multiple instances of "panels" and that is controlled by a parameter.  I doubt that your window is built like this but i can be modified or you can create one that does this.  There are many examples of families with arrayed sub-elements in them.  They are not easy to build and if you are not experienced, I suggest you learn the fundamentals first and look for a different family.

What families do i need to search for? I am eager to learn this. I'm experimenting this kind of families but from what i have learned so far i still can't make it. I know it can be done since some families in revit like the curtain walls, you can adjust its number of panels. Thank you for the reply :3

If you want something that acts similar to a curtain wall you need to look into parametric arrays
