hi all,

I did created a parametric window, with several parameters. This family consists of three window types, with are defined by the wall type they are in.

so i have three windows for three wall types [ thicknesses], how to make a parameter that recognizes the wall type of which the window is placed in so it automatically picks the right family type?

p.s. in the family I cannot make a label which measures the thickness of the wall which will be read in the model [doI have to make a shared parameter?]. and is it possible to create a formula like:

IF "label wall thickness = 100" choose family type named A
or
IF "label wall thickness = 200" choose family type named B
or
IF "label wall thickness = 300" choose family type named A

curiouswhat you can make up,

grtz

why are you complicating life for yourself? make the window and set the inside and outside reference lines to your wall, lock and that's it. does not matter what wall you put the window in. why did you do it the way you did?

1 I wanted to be sure that I only have three windowframe sizes related to only three wall types, and a so called error when a the wall size is not correct and that there is not a window frame size that fits.

2 it did have a few parameters set that created circular or unsatisfied constraints, which initially didn't make it possible to do whatyou suggested.

But, I cleand some parameters, and did what you said, and it works, I just need to remember to use only three wall types.

I could indeed say that parametric thinking is a mindset, and you can make it to complex, which isn't allways necessary. Thanxs for the easy-going tipWinking

kind regards,

E
