Automating parameter values in VisualARQ 2 Grasshopper

Hi there,

I am trying to build a grasshopper tool which turns any random geometry into an ifc object using VisualARQ and adds a number of parameters to it. The tool currently links to any number of geometries in a rhino file, positions them on the rhino origin (0,0,0) from their weighted average volume centroid and then turns them into a block definition.

The block definition is then turned into an VAelementStyle and gets a number of parameters added to it. I am able to add the parameters themselves to the style or even individual elements, but I cant get their values added automatically. Is this possible or am I forced to add the values manually either by style, or by object?

thank you in advance

Hi Wessel,
The values of custom parameters assigned to objects can be added manually or in an automated way from Grasshopper. You can see an example of how this works in this webinar: https://youtu.be/u0CajYp3VAk?t=3185 (from 53’05")
Let me know if that works for you.
