Parameters to control the dimensions on the families, GUID, info etc still have “Fire_” as a prefix to differentiate the two different parameters.
Content have been updated to be in three sizes, small (symbols are in general 500x500mm), Medium (1000x1000mm) and Large (1500x1500mm). The size is controlled by instance with parameters 1_S, 1_M & 1_L.
