Automatic numbering for seating created by railing family


I could not find any proper topics in here, so I am asking for your advice and also a beginner user of Dynamo.

I tried to use one tutorial to solve my issue.
(Auto-Numbering Parking Stalls using dynamo-

But it doesn’t work with my case.
Seating.rvt (1.4 MB)

My goal:
I try to tag or give number on the seats, which is created by railing family, on floor plan.

It would be wise for me to use dynamo because there are over a sound seats in my project.
This is a sample model.

I could not create tag for this seating because this is not furniture or others.
The seat is belong to Baluster of Railing family. Also I am using Revit 2016 so Dynamo player is not working.
Therefore my model doesn’t work with this script
Seating counting.dyn (17.6 KB)

Thanks for your advice.

Thanks for your reply.
Yes, this is a good idea and I will test it.
I didn’t use dynamo when I created entire auditorium with over 10000 seats.
Therefore I am trying to find a simple way of changing.

Hi Kulkul
I tried to use furniture family, but I was not able to tag on the seats.

I don’t know what I didn’t follow your advise.
Here are my script and model.
Seating_furniture.dyn (30.6 KB)
seating_furniture.rfa (280 KB)

Could you share your script if it is possible?

You need to feed furniture template path file .rft currently you’re feeding .rfa.
