Hi!  im setting up yet another door schedule. I would like to know if there is a way to add more parameters to the schedule directly from the door settings.  Im thinking about:

-knob type (maybe with a small image of the dood knob) and knob height

-door thickness

-external/internal frame  (yes/no + thickness)

-ventilation

-Frame/Leaf Material

-finishings Frame/leaf

etc

 

Thanks

All of those selection can be added through Property Manager.  (it is helpful organize the data by building component. We utilize the Master Format filing system in our office.)

If they are parameters in the door objects, you can add them in schedules by adding object parameters in your schedule fields.

 

If they are not parameters, then as JoeA has suggested, you can add properties to your doors.

You can then either manually fill in the property values or set up expressions in the properties that can do some calculations for you to determine the property value.

Then add the properties to the schedule fields.
