I am trying to create a Scaffolding family and have everything working properly as long as I use dimensions of 8' in length. How can I create a parameter to restrict the length to be only multiples of 8? PLEASE HELP!

Always pay attention to the similar threads shown below.  I believe the "line based family" post will show you the answer to your question.

Thanks for the response. I have seen this thread and used this formula to control the minimum length value but I still need to figure out how to allow the length to only be 8', 16', 24', ect..

Divide by 8 then Subtract 0.5 and round up.

Does this formula go with the length or the array parameter? also I am getting an "Inconsistent Units" error with this formula.

 

Sorry for not understanding, still learning here...

You do have to pay attention to units.  I would assume your imput is distance which, if you look at in decimal feet, you would divide by 8 and you may get a fraction.  The subtract - roundup function will get you a whole number which you need to change to an integer for your array.
