Hi I am trying to create to a document like the image below. It has a preview image of the family in the first column. The type name in the second column. And the file path of the family document in the third column.
I have managed to get all the pieces required to build the family library document. The difficult part is exporting this information to a suitable place. The image below uses a Bumblebee package workflow to embed the images in the Excel document but it is not stable and the images if made larger overlap so large or small not useful.
I was hoping GoogleSheets might work but BIMPlus Googlesheet package can’t embed images just image URLs and I can’t automate uploading lots of images. So I think that is also not a solution.
So I am thinking of creating a drafting view and importing images and creating text notes. But I would prefer an external document to avoid opening a Revit project. Does anyone know of a way of getting this information from Dynamo into a document for easy viewing?
Any suggestions welcome.
Writing Preview Images to Excel.dyn (93.9 KB)
Script contents: Python get a list of furniture family types. Python get family folder location. Python get Preview image of Family. Export Images. Create Excel. Bumblebee Embed images.
Edit: Would it be possible to use IronPython Microsoft Word Interop to Embed images in word. I have limited python skills also on my work computer I can not install extra Python modules.
