I am making an overhead door family and am trying to figure out how to create a formula so that when my door height parameter exceeds ten feet tall than a 6th horizontal panel (represented by symbolic lines) is shown in elevation on the door. Right now the door is modeled at 10' tall with 5 equal 2' panels, whenever I make the door taller it stretches all 5 symbolic lines equally. How can I get an additional line to show up? Any help would be great.Thanks,Andy

You need to introduce an IF statement to control the number of items in the array of the symbolic lines.  I did a quick example that is attached that you can use for seeing the logic.  Change the height to 10 feet or greater and the IF statement adds lines.  You can take this further and even next IF statements.  Another approach though would be to introduce a parameter that the user sets for maximum panel height and do the math for the array based on the maximum height.

I really appreciate your help. I tried your attachment and it worked. However, what I want to figure out is more along the lines of what you mentioned at the end of your previous post. I would like to apply a parameter so that no panel can exceed 2' but they still all stay at an equal width therefore if my door became 14'6" I would have 8 panels at 1'  10" or something around there. I am new to formulas so if this is possible could you please explain how I go about doing so. Is it nessaccary to use an array when I create my symbolic lines? Any help would be great.

Thanks,

Andy

We created one with panels that repeated. The panel was a separate family imbedded in the overhead door family. We also created it such that the "arms and rails" of the overhead door got longer as the door height changed. If you are interested look at the bathroom sink in a counter family that comes with revit in the library. It adds sinks as you stretch the counter longer. The "code" is in there.
