    Shared Parameters

    Hello. New to forum

    I am creating a composite timber structure using Revit Structure and I want to share the thickness of a sheet of ply with three independant families. I am able to include the shared parameter with each family but I have to set the value in each model.

    Is there a way of setting the thickness of the ply as a default. I change the thickness of the ply in one file (preferably in the project drawing) and the thickness changes in the other models?

    Regards

    I don't believe that is possible without selecting the family and entering the parameter. You might be able to push it using some of the Whitefeet tools but in this particular case I don't know if it's worth it.

    Create the Ply as a separate family, nest it into the composite timber families as shared. Update one instance of the Ply when loaded into the project, and the other instances will update too.
