I’ve asked similar questions to this before, but still haven’t been able to figure it out, so I figured I’d try once more.
I’m working on creating a script that allows me to drive curtain wall spacing via Dynamo. The idea is that there would be a nested curtain wall within another curtain wall as a curtain panel, allowing for a high level of customization.
Last week, I figured out how to drive the spacing of the curtain wall and the nested curtain panel via Dynamo, but there’s a problem (one I’ve seen addressed here before): the parameter “Spacing” is the same for both horizontal and vertical spacing, meaning that when you use the SetParameterByName node, you don’t know whether you are writing to horizontal or vertical spacing.
I thought that I could counter this by writing to the built-in parameters. I used Revit DB Lookup to find the built-in parameter names for spacing and tried to write to the element using Konrad’s SetBuiltInParameter node, but that’s not working either (see screenshot).
Any thoughts? Am I writing to the wrong parameter?
