    Schedule all of the structural foundation thicknesses in one column

    How to Schedule all of the Structural Foundation Thicknesses in one Column - IMAGINiT Technologies Support Blog

    Can this be done OOTB somehow? Or at least without IMAGINiT's Utilities?

    Not that I know of... I'm curious how they're doing it. Must be something with the API...

      Looks like a SP utility to me... you can add your own SP to all your foundations and do what they are showing.

        The problem is that Wall and Slab Foundations are system families, so you can't control 'Foundation Thickess' and 'Default Thickess' with a SP.

          All its doing is adding a spared parameter to multiple categories, and setting them equal to one another. You cant automate it without the API, but you can DO it in about 3 minutes...

              How did you set 'Foundation Thickness' equal to 'My Custom Parameter' without getting "Formulas cannot refer to other parameters."?

                "Foundation Thickness" isnt truly used...... or that is where the API is needed to automate the SP value. I dont use any of the system parameters for my schedules.

                  So you'd have to manually type the same numbers into both parameters? Or is there a way to drive the thickness of the wall footing by a shared parameter instead of the system parameter?

                    I am not sure you could drive the thickness of the wall footings by a SP because they are system families and like you posts earlier you can't use a formula expression in it. I beleive this is what Aaron was talking about using the API to automate the process. Maunaul alteration of one parameter for a few types shouldnt be too much work though. It will be something that needs manual coordination, unless you know how to program the API.
