I’m trying to copy Areas and Area Boundaries from linked model but i got an error at the end of process:
“Attempted an invalid element rotate, mirror, or move.”
areas copied as unclosed and boundaries not copied .
Any Idea why that?
thank u ,
i tried this but i still got error:
your script is trying to copy Areas before the zone boundary lines, try using the Passthrough node of “Clockwork package” to ordering your operations
Have you thought about the fact that you’re copying View-dependant elements to a new file without giving it a target view? (Also, Area’s are Area-Type specific, are the same Types present in the target file)
Dynamo is great is for the most part you still have to obey the Revit laws.
Some time ago I had to do the same thing. I ended up copying views first and then the areas as well. I had to a custom Python node to accomplish the task.
Consider the following:
To copy view specific elements, you have to specify destination views as @Bjorn_Keulemans1 has mentioned.
To copy the views, you need to have the levels with the same names as in the linked file.
Dependent views cannot be copied.
