    Bulk apply Shared Parameters to a Revit Family

    So every door family in our office has a dozen shared parameters in it. Everything in our template it setup fine, however whenever we create a new door, or use a door generated from a consultant / design architect.. it is lacking those parameters and we have to go through manually and generate each parameter one at a time for every door. Does Dynamo work inside the family environment?

    For instance, I'd like for a door to have a "Frame Rating" parameter.
    Discipline: Common
    Type of Parameter: Text
    Group: Identity data
    Instance Parameter

    or

    Frame Type
    Discipline: Common
    Type of Parameter: Text
    Group: Identity data
    Type Parameter

    I've seen a few methods that circle this topic, but general consensus (at least in the past) is that it didn't work)... any suggestions?

    I know CTC BIM Manager Suite and Spectrum can apply parameters to families and either will pay for itself in no time. Not sure if Dynamo can do that or not...

      CTC Family Processor (also included in the BMS as chad mentioned) does this, and also let's you store all the settings so you don't need to keep telling it what parameters. I have a ton of pre build settings files for just this purpose.

        Rushforth have got to be the best product out there for Shared Parameters, setting Parameter values & Formulas in batches.
        Oh and there are other tools in there too, but this is all I use.

          I came across this plugin that seems to specifically address this, and for a much cheaper price. It was released a couple of weeks ago.
