Hay all,


Currently using 2016, we don't typically do a door or window schedule but rather call out or tag the doors in plan/section.  I know that I can set a schedule that will display the to/from room names. What I need is to be able to have this done in a tag for sections. Couple things are is this possible and what would be the procedures for making it happen?  Thanks in advance.

Best practice would be to just have a schedule. They are far easier to read then searching through plans for each and every door. Currently there is no way to have a parameter that automatically fills in the room name for which the door opens into. There are some 3rd party add ins that can do this i believe. I think your best bet tho would be to just tag the rooms in your sections.

Another way would be to add a parameter to all your door families which references the shared parameter for room name and then you would have to add a label to your door tage families that references that same shared parameter. You would still then have to make sure the proper room is indicated in your door to get the right room name in the tag so really it is not worth it doing it as you still have to do things manually.

Schedules are the way to go. Hope this helped in some way.
