How to load parameters and data

1. Open the Parameter file from the Fire Safety Engineer in the sameRevit Session as the project, to easily add the parameters.

2. Copy the schedule from the only sheet in the Parameter file,paste onto any Sheet view in the model.

 

Note. Make sure that there is not a schedule with the same nameas the schedule the Fire Safety Engineer sent.

 

3. Remove the schedule from the sheet, it is not necessary to keep.

Now all the Parameters are copied to the model, as Shared Parameters, connected to the correct Category.

4. Install the BFT Import tool sent by the Fire Safety Engineer, otherwise go to Trials & Download page and download Receiver / Reader for Architect tool

 

 

5. In the Add-Ins tab, go to BFT Import > Import from link

6. Choose the Fire Safety Model in the drop-down menu, and press Import.This will load the data from the Fire Safety model to the Architect model.

 

Note: When importing, the software will own all object in the imported category.So be sure to be alone in the model.

The next time the Fire Safety Engineer sends a file with updated data, just repeat step 5-6.
