Paramnesia is a plug-in which helps Revit® users proofread their BIM parameters. This tool will check thousands of parameters, names, and families against a master nomenclature file that you control.

General Usage Instructions

Paramnesia is a proofreading plug-in.  At a certain point, users want to make sure the parameters in their Revit file are correct.  Going through all the parameters one at a time is very slow and restrictive.  

How to use Paramnesia:  

  1. Click on the “Model Checker” or “View Checker” buttons.  This will search the model for all parameters.

  2. Filter which parameter name(s) you want to check.

  3. Select the checkboxes to the left of the parameter names you want.

  4. Click “Report,” which will check all the parameters, and make schedules determining compliance.

  5. Click on the 0001d-Schedules to review your results.

  6. If everything is compliant, you are good.  If somethings are not compliant, update your model accordingly, or append to the Paramnesia dictionary to expand the database.
