Motivation (why we need this feature): At big projects, family types are usually following name conventions mandated by the project's BIM execution plan. As such, sometimes they are not easily readable and hence difficult to assign a template. As in such projects the description parameter is normally populated, it would help the user identify what these types are and map them with the appropriate template., Which regions need the feature?: Global, Which projects types does the feature support?: Buildings, Fit Outs, Landscaping, Which ratings systems require the feature?: N/A,
Currently the plugin send the familyt type name to eToolLCD. It would very useful if would also send the family type description parameter.
