Generates parameters for a detail in order to easily change dimensions, angles, etc.

Make sure you run this command in the detail file and not in a project.

Detail files are saved in the folder, and its subfolders, which is defined by the DETAILSPATH system variable. By default this is C:\ProgramData\Bricsys\Details\.

## Accessing the Command

Commandline: **BIMPARAMETRIZEDETAIL**

**: BimParametrizeDetail**

No prompts.

The parameters and constraints can be edited in the Mechanical Browser.

## Procedures

Parametrize and Edit a Wall-Slab Connection Detail

Parametrize and Edit a Structural Steel Connection

Propagate a Detail in a Project

Parametrizing a component automatically

Changing the parameters and constraints in the parameters manager
