I have created an adaptive component that has parametric dimensions within it. I would like to create a sheet/drawing and bring in an elevation view of the adaptive component and be able to see the parametric dimension that i've created within the component. 

 

Is there a way to do this? would i need to create a specific type of dimension within the component? is there any software out there that can help me show these dimensions?

 

I am NOT requiring revit to automatically detect dimensions or anything like that. I'll make the dimensions on my own. I would just like to bring in a view on the sheet and not have to dimension the component again (i'll be making a lot of component dimension drawings).

 

Thanks,

YHou can't do this in the family environment but maybe you can group the dimensions with the component in the project.

WWhub,

What do you mean by grouping the dimensions with the component?

Thanks,

I have not used adaptive components very much so I don't know how this will work if at all.   I'm more familiar with 'normal' families that have reference planes set that you can dimension to in the project. 

 

Within the project environment, you can group model, detail and annotative components to use in multiple placements.  Once placed, a group can be ungrouped and modified.   If your adaptive component is modified in the project, the associated dimension will follow along.

 

Be aware that dimensions are placed on view work planes so I don't know what dimesnsions you could have in an adaptive component that you can work with.  Only those dimensions that are normal to the view can actually show up when they are in a group.
