Step 1 - Parameter Search Set
How do you define your Parameter Search Set?

The Window

The first window looks like this:
The window where we define how to search for the parameters


Parameter Name

Enter any parameter name you are interested in within the "Name"-field. It can be any parameter you are interested in: be it an instance, shared, project, builtin or family parameter.
Can't remember the parameter name you're looking for? Right-click in to prompt a window where you can search for any project parameter in your .rvt.

Parameter Filters

You can apply a filter to each parameter if you'd like to limit what parameter values you are interested in. Say you would like to see only parameters with LOD 300 and 400, enter them in the "Filters"-field, separated by semi-colon. The filters are evaluated by Equal-rule, so make sure they are spelled correct.
Think it's difficult to distinguish the parameter values? Right-click in the field to prompt a window where the values are displayed as a multi-line list.

Filter behavior

Row combinations

When adding several parameters you can choose how to combine them. Choose And to see every cross-combination, or Or to see any single combination.

Filter action

If you are interested in seeing all but elements with LOD 300 and 400? Select Exclude to show everything else but these. Super for checking the existence of illegal values. Enter all legal values as filters and exclude these. The rest must be corrected.

Search Sets

In projects you may end up having to check all sorts of combinations bac and forth. Once you are satisfied with your search set, you can save it for later.
Defining search sets can be quite handy on all levels: for each user during the design, for model coordinators during model verification in the project and at company level for facilitating the workflows in your company.
