COINS Parameter Report
Harness the power to drastically reduce repetitive object parameter edits and significantly minimize time to investigate modeling issues.
Through the Parameter Report you quickly view, sort, copy, and edit all object parameters, instance or type, for a category or family type. For example, instantly copy all or selected room names and numbers to space names and numbers, or at once change all columns in every conference room to not be room bounded.
As well, when you use Parameter Report in combination with the included Auto-Section Box you can visually reveal where your selection of sorted instances are located. For example, visually identify all walls on level one which are not referenced to a level but are unconnected.
Additionally, use the Export feature to send current parameter query to "csv" format. This one-directional export allows you to then further modify and analyze data needed for further decision making from within spreadsheet applications. While modifications made in the export are strictly for decision support you are able to make permanent project modifications in the Parameter Report in a similar fashion.
The COINS Parameter Report add-in is available for $4.99 on the Autodesk Exchange | Apps website.
