I have created a frame family and nested into it numerous door panels. I have than created yes/no parameters for each panel (HM, HM Half Lite, HM View Lite, WD, WD Half Lite, WD View Lite, etc.....) Therefore I can choose which panel I would like to appear inside of the frame. For each panel I created I assigned it the appropriate material and named that material how I would like for it to appear on our schedules. When I load the family into my model the various door panels all interchange correctly with their yes/no parameters. However, I am curious as to how I go about getting the material of whichever door I have selected to register in my schedule automatically. Is there a way to do this and if so how? Thanks in advance,Andy

in your door family, make a parameter for your finish (instance) you also should have a finish parameter on your panels and they should be tied to the finish parameter.

it's a bit confusing i guess Smile

I have create a shared parameter called "Door Finish" in my door/frame family. I have also than gone and made shared parameters in all of my different door panels called "finish". I than nesteed the panels into the frame family and linked the two shared parameters. However, the problem is now when I go to my on/off parameters and toggle between the different panels the finish parameter doesn't recoginze the material assigned to the individual panels. Where am I going wrong?

Thanks,Andy

once in the door family, create an instance parameter called panel finish (or what ever you want to call it) than you will need to select each panel that was loaded to the door family, go to it's properties and "tie" it's finish parameter to the one you made earlier.(click on the = at the end of the parameter...)
