Create new Hosted Area Load

I am trying to select all analytical floors in my revit model and create a new area load that is hosted to those elements. I found some coding that created a new line load (http://dynamobim.org/forums/topic/line-loads-creation-via-python/ ) but when I try to adjust it to create an area load I am getting a syntax error in line 34.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong??

One thing I see is that you need to feed the python a LoadType element, not a name (string).

Also check this for documentation of the method: http://revitapisearch.com/html/c0729559-ba92-5705-2a75-87390584c795.htm

Here is another way to create Area load using Rooms.

Thanks Guys, below is how I solved the problem

Kulkul, Id be interested to see your python coding!

Nice thanks @Brett_Taylor .
And for those that work in Metric, we can just add the Convert Node. :slight_smile:

Hi Kulkul

Is there any chance you will be willing to share the python script with me? Also, do you think there is a way to apply various loads (size of loading, 1.5kPa, 3kPa etc…) onto the floor depending on the usage of the room (room type)?
