Linking Information To An Element In Revit   1 comment

When you deal with a lot of information and you have created tons of documents like pdf, excel, word files and so on you forget, from time to time,  the location of a file – “now, where in the world have i placed this document”. Browsing for hours might help, maybe it will not. Depends on your nerves….

Another way to easily and fast access a specific file that is relevant to your model elements is to simply link them to each other…. Creating an URL Project Parameter gives you the ability to “connect” a file to a construction element in Revit. Then, when needed, simply select the revit element in question, go to its type/instance (depending on how you created the Pr. Parameter) properties and click on the links you made, this will open the file with the relevant software/program.

If you have any questions simply use the comment box. The comment will not appear immediately because  i need to approve it (i have to watch out for spam which runs wild in the web…..), so simply wait for a while – hours to a day.
