    Family Types and Nested Familes

    Can you use a type catalog to generate parameters that are labels of families?

    Yes, you just cant write formulas to fill them out. In 2012 you can *sort of* write formulas, but its a hack at best.

    Below is a Revit family and its catalog. When I load the family on my computer it pulls the catalog just fine. However, when someone else tries to load it it gives the attached error.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Grant

    Loads fine in 2013, but after a quick look you may want to rename your nested types, removing the comma ( C8,W8 ). That comma is prob why you have everything in quotes in the catalog, which could be part of the problem.

    So we could get this to work in 2013 as well, but get the error from above in 2012.
