1. ? Family help

if my width and depth are equal to or greater than 31" it should equal this....how do i write this so revit can understand. also what kind of formula does revit actually use and understand so i can get some lessons. Im not horrible in math i just haven't done any in years and need a huge refreshment on what im doing, i don't want to freeload i just need some assistance in understanding whats going on and what im doing wrong

2. if(and(not(Width>31),not(Depth>31)),THIS,ELSETHAT)

There's a thread here that shows a lot/most/all of the math you can use in Revit. This isn't math though... it's a logical statement. Similar but different.

3. thanks could you happen to point me in the direction of that thread or the name of it at least

4. It's a sticky in the tutorials section -- http://www.revitforum.org/tutorials-...day-usage.html

5. The Revit online help has a number of topics on formulas as well.

6. I have been trying this with no results, the parameters were instance parameters but i then changed them to type and still ntn. i have attached a picture so that maybe this would help everyone better understand what im trying to do. i want the double vane visibility to be visible when the depth or width is 31" or more but not be if it is 30" and below. i have also looked at the links yall have provided me and am still confused, this is definitely not my strong suit at all

7. Two things; you've got the formula referring to itself and to get a yes/no in the formula you need another formula -- I use 1=1 for yes, and 1=2 for no.

if(and(not(Width>31),not(Depth>31)), 1=1 , 1=2)

and(not(Width > 31), not(Depth > 31)) also works, as yes/no parameters don't need to be told to equal yes or no, just what condition to equal yes.

Right. Good point. I didn't even notice that!
