Are your Revit users pulling families from manufacturer websites, then spending project time individually reconciling the differences between the parameters used without destroying existing data?

Downloaded Revit family content introduces shared parameters into a project that are different from the parameters used in the company’s schedule. These differences can cause schedules to display incomplete or inaccurate data requiring tedious, individual fixes.

With BIM Project Suite, from CTC Software,you can now utilize a two-step process to swap the parameters in the family and carefully reconcile the differences between the parameters used without destroying exiting data. Inside of BIM Project Suite is a tool called Parameter Jammer.

Parameter Jammer uses a two-step process to swap the parameters in the family to reconcile the differences between the parameters without destroying your existing data, saving users time and headaches. The first step swaps parameters that can be safely identified as a match, while the second allows users to map, add or omit parameters that do not need to be swapped.

Features include:
• Uses the schedule to derive parameter needs.
• Allows the end user to push parameters into a non-standard family.
