7.3.4 Apply the New Glazing Type

2 minutesread

To apply a new Glass Type from the list provided in the Glass Database:

  1. Having selected a glazed element on the model (window or curtain panel) select a Glass Type from the List
  2. Apply this to the selected Revit element by using the arrow shown
Choosing a Glass Type and  applying to the model

This will substitute the current Glass Type in the model for the one chosen in the list.  A message will display to confirm that the changes have occurred (if the entry is already in Revit) or if Revit does not yet contain this entry, that the properties will be changed when Revit is closed and restarted again.

Message that changes were successful
Message that changes will be applied on next Revit launch

Note: If Revit’s Edit Type window is open, this will prevent any changes being made. Please ensure that the Edit Type window is closed before using the Guardian Glass Database.  If the properties cannot be changed you will see a message showing that the families could not be updated.

Also recent versions of Revit allow several settings to Define Thermal Properties (Schematic, Building Type and Schematic Type).  Please ensure that Schematic Type has been set under Type Properties/Edit Type – Analytical Properties so that Glass Types will update in Revit.  If custom values have been defined for a glazed element (‘User Defined’) or ‘Building Type’ has been defined (default construction types defined for elements in Revit), the application will not be able to update the glass type in Revit.
