I’m looking for a way to change specific family type parameters and creating types on the basis of an excel file. Now reading from an excel file at the moment results in a list consisting of lists which individually look a little like:
Type name, parameter value 1, parameter value 2, parameter value 3
Ideally I’d like to see Dynamo create family types for Revit with the given type name and parameter values. I’m not even sure whether that’s possible and next to that it won’t be necessary. It’d also be fine to only read and change these parameter values.
Thanks in advance.
So I got this far:
I can’t yet add new family types via excel, but this will do for now. At the moment I’m using different “Element.SetParameterByName” nodes for each different parameter, I haven’t yet managed to effectively to enter a string of parameters into it (I’m neither sure whether that’s possible), although I do know that’d make it all a lot less convoluted but for now this works.
