Saving Parameterized Model as Block

Tips & Tricks

Parameterized input can be an efficiency enhancing tool, allowing you to specify the model and load data in such a way that they are dependent on certain variables. These variables (for example length, width, traffic load, etc.) are called “parameters” and are saved in a parameter list.

The parameters can be used in formulas to determine a numerical value. To modify these formulas, use the formula editor. If a parameter is changed in the parameter list, the results of all formulas using this parameter are adjusted and the linked model geometry, loading, etc. change automatically.

If you save the parameterized structure as block, the parameters are kept and become available as variable values in the later import of the block.
