Parameter I/O

Parameter I/O

Mac OS, English

Autodesk
Enables the user to Import/Update parameters from or export them to a CSV file.

General Usage Instructions

Once installed, the "Parameter I/O" add-in will create a new button in the menu of the "Model" workspace's "Modify" panel.

When clicking this button a dialog will pop up where you can choose if you want to import/update parameters inside the model from the CSV (Comma Separate values) file or Export them to a CSV file.

Then another dialog will show asking you to select the file location and name to use.

When importing parameters from a file: if a given parameter already exists then its unit, value and comment will get updated, otherwise a new user parameter will be created with the provided values.

When exporting parameters to a file: all the parameters inside the model will be written to the given CSV file.

You can see in one of the below screenshots the CSV format required for importing, but you can also examine a CSV file created when exporting parameters using this addin.
