Collect all windows in project_browser/families/windows (not just revit project instances)

i use Element Types + All Elements Of Types Nodes to collect all of my loaded windows, but it return all of my revit families, how can i collect all of my loaded windows in this way or in any other way ?

Assuming you’re looking for all instances of the category ‘window’, try an All Elements of Category node, and a Category node.

Types will return the family types rather than the instances.

Hi Jacob, i need some nodes to collect these window types or any other window types those are exist in this section(project browser --> families --> windows) not just instances .

I might use Python for this…

import clr

import RevitServices
from RevitServices.Persistence import DocumentManager
doc =  DocumentManager.Instance.CurrentDBDocument

from Autodesk.Revit.DB import *

doc = DocumentManager.Instance.CurrentDBDocument

OUT = FilteredElementCollector(doc).OfCategory(BuiltInCategory.OST_Windows).WhereElementIsElementType().ToElements()

Mostly a Built In Category just has OST_ infront of the name… You can find a complete list of built in categories here…

If you would like to do more sophisticated things with your FEC, this is a great resource…

Hopefully that is useful.
