    Shared parameters with wall sweeps don't work

    Morning,

    I came across really annoying problem, and to be honest I'm chasing my tail without any results - maybe one of you solved that mystery.

    So what I'm trying to achieve - I've got a wall (any type you can think of) and a wall sweep, then I'm creating a 'shared parameter' that is attached to the wall and up to this point everything works fine. As a next step I was asked to export model and dump parameters attached to the wall (text field) under 'Data tab' into *.IFC file- lovely. Then, using Solibri data (it may be 'shared parameter' attached to the geometry (mentioned wall), or COBie) is being checked, and here comes the issue. Revit populates data when it comes to the wall, however, when I click on the wall sweep data that should be attached/populated is missing. Unfortunately, some codes have to be attached to the wall and to the wall sweep and I've got no idea why it doesn't work. I'm pretty sure that when I was creating 'shared parameter' both walls and wall sweeps have been ticked, I tried 'type' and 'instance' parameter still doesn't work.

    Hope it makes sense, is there anybody who encountered this issue? is there any quick fix?

    Thanks for help!

    What type of parameter is it and how is it being populated with data?
    There are no stupid questions, only stupid people

      Hi. The way I'm reading this, is that your created a project parameter of the shared parameter type and assigned it to Walls and Wall Sweeps as an Instance parameter. Now you have that parameter shown in the instance properties for Walls, and for Wall Sweeps - 2 different element categories, each having the same parameter name in which you can enter whatever value you want. Right? Now you want to report those parameter values that you assigned. Well, to do this in Revit you would need to create 2 different schedules that include that parameter field: a schedule for Walls and a schedule for Wall Sweeps. Do you get where I'm going?

        Thanks Elton Williams and Bath for your reply.

        Exactly, it's one of shared parameters assigned to Walls and Wall Sweeps (I tried) as an Instance and Type parameter. Not even shown, I would say 'working'! What do I mean by working, I did that step thousand of times to populate COBie parameters, custom parameters (through schedules) etc. and it worked perfectly, however, when it comes to Wall Sweeps it doesn't. So what I did, I created shared parameter, text one, under 'Data', and that custom field has been created and assigned to Wall all good. Now the trick is following - I want it to be blank field (without any description yet - i.e. AssetType - *blank* - don't ask why that's the client requirement) that later on will be populated with some data, but at the moment I'm asked to export IFC file that is checked using Solibri. Solibri ruleset checks whether, 'AssetType field exist' (no matter what AssetType description was filled in i.e. movable asset, fixed asset or even n/a) and unfortunately model fails. Why fails? - Basically, whatever is assigned/attached to Wall has not been populated/attached/assigned to Wall Sweeps - it's missing in IFC file when you click on Wall Sweep, whereas, Wall posses that parameter. Does it make sense to you gents?
