Categories Node fail


I have a Problem with the Node “Categories”. The same dynamo file does not work with different Revit versions. I have to save a dynamo file for every version of revit, because the node does change automatically the chosen Categorie.

Is there an other way to get the Categories?

Kind regards

Hi @Cree-G,

Use the Category.ByName node with the name of the category as a string.

For Element Types use the ElementType.ByName of Clockwork package.


Haha great minds think alike :smiley:
