There are Multiple entries with the same name in Revit’s glazing types

1 minuteread

If there are multiple entries in Revit’s Constructions.xml list with the same name, Revit will use the entry which is last in the sequence. An entry which has the same name in the Linc database and is chosen for selection, may have a set of properties which do not match an entry in Revit.

This may occur where there are several entries in Revit for Glazing Types which have the same name eg. ¼” Double Glazing. Revit may have one entry with one set of properties, a second entry with another set of properties and a skylight entry with a different set of properties.

Revit invariably uses the last entry in the list which may be the skylight version. An entry chosen in Linc which appears to have the same name, therefore may not map to the correct Revit entry as expected since there are multiple versions.

Users are therefore advised to check the thermal properties in Edit Type to confirm that the entry has mapped correctly and that these are the properties that they intend to assign.
