Can you use Dynamo to change the Associated Level of a View in Revit?

Since you cannot change the Associated Level of a view in Revit, I’m curious to learn if Dynamo can do this. I’d also accept an alternate solution that provides the same result, but instead of changing the associated view, it simply built a new view, effectively identical to the original (including detailing), but with a different level association.

I think you need to understand how Revit works. Try this in a Plan View:

  1. Select the crop region.
  2. Copy to Clipboard.
  3. Paste > Aligned to Selected Levels (new Associated Level)
Good luck.

Copying and pasting crop regions doesn’t change the associated level. Has anyone really gotten that to work? Has anyone figured out how to use Dynamo to change the associated level of a view?

@e1uvs,

That’s my point… is NOT possible. You need to create a new view.

I think you need to understand how Revit works too?

Dynamo uses the Revit API to automate tasks. If you can’t do it in Revit you can’t do it in Dynamo. Dynamo has to follow the same rules as Revit.
