    You can't use ampersands, and only text requires quotes. And is used for logic. To add the angles you would use the plus sign:
    d1+d2+d

    I suggest you review this thread: https://www.revitforum.org/tutorials...day-usage.html

    I mean a L-shaped corner profile. I often call an angle. it isn't a degree of an angle . Sorry for the mistake.

    With these info ("d" and "d1" en "d2") I want to make formula which can form a dimension of a corner profile: L160x80x2

    How can I do this?

    Ah, that is different. You can't convert parameters to text values. You can do it in a project schedule (if they are shared parameters) with a combined parameter, or you can use dynamo to create that combination and push it back to the family, but you would need to run it each time you make a change.

    That's the purpose and function of family types. Define the size with a name and enter the appropriate matching values in the corresponding parameters.
