I’m trying to export elements (loabable&Sytem) from Revit to Excel with RevitID. That’s working already!
In Excel I change the Type to another Type that exist in my project. Fine!
Then the way from Excel to Revit, I can filter all the elements by Element ID. And I get the right value(Type) from my Excel.
But when I want to set the Family and Type to another value with “Element.SetParameterByName” I got an error. Is this because the Type name of an element is not a parameter? Somebody have a solution to change my type?
That did the job but not with the result I need.
He took every type of wall in my project and rename it like I ask in Excel. But the thing is, I don’t want to rename it, I want to change all my walls to this “21_ABS_WA_175_Kzs”. Now he just rename it but the properties/thickness/… are still the same.
Do you see a possibility to change them to the already existing type “21_ABS_WA_175_Kzs” in the project.
But it will be still renaming the existing wall. I don’t want to touch the existing walls/floors/doors/ceilings in my project. Just want to change from 1 type, to another type. Without changing names/properties.
