I have found the same thing.  The workaround I have used is to run a script to setup window heights and widths using a global parameters, then vary window areas using the global parameters.

Subject: [Equest-users] Export from GBXML


I'm working with an eQUEST model that has been generated in Revit and exported as a GBXML back into eQUEST. There are a couple of things that are a little strange about it:

1.       Every surface has its own polygon - making the model very large.

2.       Child objects don't seem to be able to be based on characteristics of their parent (this is my bigger concern). For instance - if you want a ribbon window to study different glazing percentages by varying the height of the ribbon, it was easy enough to set a default parameter as #P("WIDTH"). You don't seem to be able to do that with these models.

Has anyone else come across this? Is there a workaround? If so - what is it?

Thanks in Advance
