Scheduling nested components in custom door family

Postby SteveP » Thu Oct 06, 2011 12:02 pm

I have created my own door family and have nested in various peices of ironmongery. But when I come to schedule these in a project, I can only get the door itself to schedule. I cannot create an reference to the ironmongery families at all? Am I missing something here?

thanks,
Steve

You need to ensure that your family parameters (in your nested component) are set to be "Shared" (a simple check-box) before they are nested into their Host.

Hope this helps?
