Is it the duplicated Family Types that you are after? i.e. box, box 2, box 3, box 4? Perhaps try this:

Hi Willams,

Thanks for the post , but i do not have the nodes “FamilyInstance.Getfamily” and “Family.types” in my version of Dynamo. I am using dynamo 0.8.0. I cannot update to newer versions because of my system configuration.

I was wondering if there was a workaround…

Anyways thanks for your help.
Cheers !

Hi @shoiab.1618

You can get the family types of box family as shown below.


You can then go a head and connect FamilySymbol.Name node to get the names of all family types. Cheers!
