BIM is evolving the way we share information and shared parameters are the keys to the data within Revit models. Unfortunately, the building industry’s leading organizations are not currently sharing these keys with one another, creating divided and incompatible data on any given project.
The OpenRFA initiative aims to fix this issue by revolutionizing how we currently share data within Revit models by implementing a standardized set of shared parameters. These proposed parameters are an ongoing collaborative effort by the designers, manufacturers, contractors, and building owners. On this platform, the AECO industry finally has the opportunity to propose, approve, and reject shared parameters as a community.
To start using the OpenRFA shared parameters, simply download the OpenRFA shared parameters file and load these shared parameters in your projects and families.
Share OpenRFA with any manufacturers, designers, and contractors that will benefit from a single shared parameter source.
