Add Family Types with Dynamo


#1

I have one family ‘B’ loaded into the family ‘A’ that I am working in.

I’d like to run Dynamo in family ‘A’ and have it add new types to the loaded family ‘B’, and then place this nested family ‘B’ in family ‘A’.

Is there a way to add new family types with Dynamo?

If not, I can do this with Revit’s API. Could I write this as a custom node in Dynamo? If I can, how do I get started?

Try ElementType.Duplicate from package Clockwork - so far I’ve only used it in the project environment but it may work in families, too.

Thanks Andreas, I’ll give that a try.
