Specification parameters in Shop Drawings

Last modified by superadmin on 2021/08/30 16:20


One of the latest features in IMPACT for Revit is the possibility to insert and change values in Shop Drawings for Specification parameters and to be reflected in Project Manager and vice-versa. 


1. To start off, it is important that you create a field name for Specification parameters and specify the values in IMPACT Standard Admin.

2. Open the Shop Drawing template and Edit the family in order to create labels for Specification parameters.

3. Go to the Specifications tab in Shop drawing settings and select a value for the Specification parameters and then press on Apply button. As specified before, those values are taken from the IMPACT Standard Admin.

4. Save the element and create a Shop drawing with the same template. The Shop drawing is generated with the Specification parameters which you have specified in Shop Drawing settings
