Manage Parameters

Parameter Merge can merge information from another project - or rather, import information from another project and write it on the same parameter in your project.

This can be used when you need to import information from a Revit file that has been built from an IFC file but you can also use this function to import other kinds of information such a familly type information.


Parameter information can merged directly based on either the Revit GUID or the IFC GUID.

A GUID is a unique number, the same element copied/pasted or loaded will not have the same GUID.
However, the same family loaded into two projects will have the same type GUID.

Before any information is merged, you will be able to preview the changes that will be done to your model. This preview could be used to compare information in models.

You need to save your project before trying the function.



Combine Parameters is a parameter copier - it's able to copy information on all elements within a category. 
From instance to instance, type to type or type to instance.

It's also able to combine information from several parameters into once and add prefixes and suffixes to each parameter copied.

A setting can also be saved and easily reused again later.




The Combine Parameters window is divided into few sections with an intended left to right workflow.


Filter by, choose to apply changes to elements from Saved Filter Settings, pre selected elements or all elements of selected categories.

Categories, you can select one or multiple categories to apply changes to.

Parameters, parameters available for selected categories are listed here. You select one or more source parameter(s) and move them into the Selected Parameter(s) either by simply double clicking or using the Revit style move parameter button.

Selected Parameter(s), in this section you arrange the parameters and add prefixes or suffixes. There is a Preview in the bottom right corner and this preview is not based on any real parameter data.

Destination Parameter is the target parameter, where your combined information will be recorded. If you copy from an instance parameter you will not be able to copy to a type parameter and the type choice will be disabled, this is by design.

Setting, this is where you can save your Combine Parameter configuration and use it again later. Saving a setting works when selecting multiple categories.

To activate the function, just click the Combine Parameters button.


In Revit 2013, using this function on elements in groups might cause unpredictable behaviour.


Batch Combine Parameters apply changes to multiple parameters by applying multiple saved Combine Parameter settings in a specified order in a single click.

Selected saved Combine Parameters settings to apply to the project and in what order. Last used settings are saved.
