With the R2 version of 2016 Revit we were introduced to Global Parameters. As Dezi and myself have been looking into how to utilize them she noticed a nice quirk related to them. Previously I have posted about beams and associating them to columns and then clarified that post with a follow up. When entering a value for the attachment distance Revit will only allow this to be a positive value, which will move the beam towards the center of the column. Dezi had noticed that if a global parameter is associated you can enter a negative value
Now I want users to try and use Global Parameters and see if they can use them were we can’t have a negative value. If you find them please comment to this blog.
