    I create a cube with the dimension AxB. I define A with 2m and B with 1m in the parameter list, then I save the element and place this cube in the ground plan. Know I change the dimension of this cube (A=4, B=3), can I get the original value of A or B out of the script or are they know overwritten?

    Thanks in advance.

    Default parameters (those values set when the object is saved) can always be retrieved

      Hi David
      Thank you, I’ve not know that, but it’s not what I’m looking for.

    Hi Manuel,

    from the script you don’t have it. For what would you need it?

      Hi Péter

      We have a construction area with some buildings (building A, building B, building C). Know we want to place a survey map in the header of every plan, at the moment the
      architect do this with the element below. He draw the survey map in the 2D-Symbol and change the list of the parameter “p_sicht_tab”. With the command MUL2 it’s possible
      to change the size graphically, but I need the parameters orig_A & orig_B (At the moment we copy the parameter A & B manual in the parameterlist).
      Maybe there is a better way to create this element, thank you in advance.

        orig_A and orig_B don’t have to be parameters, they can be variables or numbers in the code too. Maybe it’s easier to find them if they are parameters.
        Another solution can be to resize the drawing to be 1×1 m, thus you can write MUL2 A, B instead of MUL2 A/1, B/1. A and B can be the original size of the drawing in this case.
