View Full Version : 'Model' Family Type Parameter problem
2004-04-28, 05:22 AM
I have a family that I would like to set the 'Model' parameter via a Type Catalogue. When I try and load the family I get the error 'The parameter Model doesn't exist in the Family. It will be ingnored.' but from what I can tell it is there, and further more it can't be removed as it's hard coded in.
I have attached the offending file if you care to have a look.
Think you are right the word Model is hard coded in - or it could be a shared parameter. I changed the name to CHS Type and added CHS Type to the RFA and it loaded with no error messages.

Yeah, that's the other option. I was hoping to keep the Model parameter for consistency.

Anyone have any updates/fixes for this problem yet?
I'm working on getting the Haworth Unigroup panels and worksurfaces we use into Revit families and have been using type catalogs. I need to get either the "model" or "type mark" to get filled in from my type catalog .txt file.
Any updates on this issue will be appreciated.

Yeah, can we get any comments from the development team on this one. :)

Chad and other interested parties....
I believe I have discovered a work-around for this problem.
Start a new project, load your family into the new project independant of your type catalog .txt file, edit properties of family type in the new project to include something in the "model" category. Save the family back out as an .rfa file to mate up with type catalog file location and name.
The family will now have "model" as a family type included with it.
Define: Model##other## in your type catalog file and it should load just fine.
This also works with Type Comments and Cost, but not with Type Mark for some reason.
