    Scheduling ranges

    How do you handle scheduling ranges? One I've came across is inlet pressure for natural gas. The schedule I'm trying to create needs to be able to show a range like 7"-14" for example. How am I supposed to do this. The only thing I can think of is having two parameters and combining them.

    I've just tried adding a calculated value to a schedule and then combining parameters but it doesn't appear that a shared and calculated parameter can be combined.

    To keep it simple, use two parameters/columns, one titled "minimum" and one titled "maximum". This will achieve the same result.

    I'm not sure what you're trying to do is possible with an OOTB solution, but I've seen the Dynamo users accomplish some amazing things.

    Isn't mechanical fun? I originally had this as a text parameter, before combined parameters were available. Not to mention the need to show different units for the ranges. As above, that's in-wg, but anything higher would be in psig. Oh, yeah and NGAS isn't even an available system.

    So much fun. The architectural folks have no idea how complex our families, parameters and schedules can get. By the time you get all of these little details sorted you feel like you're a certified Revit expert.

    And then the real fun is trying to explaining how it all works to other people.

    I forgot Combined Parameters were available. Great tip Tom.

    I use Combined Parameters to schedule the dimensions of field-constructed condensate drain pans. Our ACU detail says that they need to be 6" larger than the length & width of the unit, so that's easy to control with a basic formula. On my schedule, I have a single column called "Drain Pan Dimensions", and they're listed in a familiar format e.g. 54"x38"x1".
