Tagging Invert Levels

Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of err.. solutions for tagging invert levels. From adding shared parameters to your pipe families through to using Dynamo and everything in between.

Ignoring the fact that you can’t add parameters to system families like duct and pipework, there is a far simpler way to get what you’re after.

Ever heard of the spot elevation tool?

The key is in the settings that you use.

The settings that I use in my templates are as follows, the settings to change are highlighted below

In the units format dialogue, change the your settings to match the following

And of course, don’t forget to select the bottom elevation!

    This is a good solution for parameter issues with ducts.

    is there a way using the spot elevation tool to “ta” the inside diameter of a pipe. we have a job where inverts are to the inside dia with quite large wall thicknesses. the inverts to the ID are critical not the OD

    Hi Stacey, there is no way to do this out of the box. You can do some quick calculations with either Dynamo or a macro though. I’ve posted up the Dynamo solution here: http://www.revit.com.au/calculating-and-tagging-pipe-obverts-with-dynamo
