I am working with the Elements, Element Types and Families. I was wondering if someone could help clear up how things are selected in dynamo and make sure I have the Revit Hierarchy correct. (Image copied form the Primer.
Using Element Types with Family Instances and All Elements of Type I get 6,072 elements. What are these elements? Using code from Einar_Raknes in post Collect all categories in a project I get 113,172 Element ID’s. Thats a huge difference in Element counts.
FamilyInstance.Type then return 525 elements while Family Symbol returns 1,636. FamilyInstance.Type also will not take Mullions and Curtain Panels while Element.GetParameterValueByName will.
Finally FamilyType.Family return 303 and Family returns 616.
I know the end numbers are effected by how I first collected the elements but its a big difference at the end.
What is Element Types set to FamilyInstance collecting?
What is Element Types set to Family Symbol collecting?
What is Element Types set to Family Collecting?
Families.dyn (26.4 KB)
Thanks for your help,
