List of Parameter

PARAMETER DIMENSION DESCRIPTION
Thickness_Cover [Length] Distance from bridge deck to the axis
Slope_Deck [Slope] Slope of the deck
Slope_Cantilever [Slope] Slope of the cantilever on both sides
Width_Deck_Right/Left [Length] Width of the deck on right/left side of the axis
Width_Parapet_Right/Left [Length] Range of right/left parapet
Thickness_Cantilever_Right/Left [Length] Thickness of right/left cantilever
Thickness_Cantilever_Edge [Length] Thickness of cantilever on the deck’s edge
Width_Cantilever_Right/Left [Length] Width of the right/left cantilever
BR_R/L [Length] Construction point for right/left parapet
Control_CL_Right/Left [yes/no] If activated, Width_Cantilever_Right/Left parameter is taken into account. Otherwise, Width_Cantilever_Right/Left parameter is neglected. Width of cantilever is calculated according to the overall bridge width and Width_Slab_Bottom (for Hollow Box) / Width_Beam (for T-Beam) / Width_Beam and Width_Beam_Axis_Right/Left (for Double T-Beam) parameter(s). Parameter is not available in Superstructure Dialog. Editable in Revit Family Editor.
Offset_Axis_Horizontal/Vertical [Length] Additional horizontal/vertical offset to the axis.

Deck Line - double slope

Overview
