    Family Editing/Creation - OOTB "Shared" Yes/No Parameter

    Hi all.

    I was wondering if anyone could explain what the "Shared" yes/no parameter does when editing/creating families. (I have attached an image to help clarify what I am asking about.)

    Thank you for your help!

    When you nest a family using the family type parameter and it is shared, you can switch out other families of the same family type.

    For example...you can make a door panel shared, and change the panel without changing the door frame type.

        I think they should continue to have a domestic door opening in a Plan View. Leave the specifics for shop drawings. In my World less information equals less problems. Took awhile to figure that out. I love to call out an area (doors, windows, etc) to a mfg company's drawing. Cant do it all or you will be up 24 hours a day.

          Couldn't possibly disagree with that point of view more, if I wanted to. Sorry... That's a lazy, pass the buck, short changing mentality.

          (Just my opinion, of course...)

            I see your point. I am worried about the lintel. Door is just an add on. You could put up a curtain instead.

            BTW, Phablet? That a phish version of tablet or something?

              Doors aren't just an "add-on." Different frames, different sized holes, different framing conditions, different hardware, different leafs. There's a lot to a door.

                not structural. however, i saw a concrete door once at UPENN. 18" thick with lead interior. needed a crane. guess what had to be underneath?

                cancer hospitals are way outside normal construction. PENN does not mess around. They build $500M structures like its normal.

                i didnt know how important grids and columns were to I was on that site. Every column/grid intersection was where the caissons were drilled. 50' apart some 70-100' deep. Water shooting up allover. They put a 10' slab on ground to (-) 10'. I was on awe. Shut down 76 to get concrete trucks to get their pours in time.

                I had to block off the mummers when the cyclotron was delivered by helicopter

                  What you just described is happening at every large job site in the country...
