Definitely a Dynamo novice, (probably shockingly bad), so I’m hoping someone can help me out!
The models we create in Revit are exported to IESVE for UK energy analysis and we have thermal templates set up in IES differing per room/occupancy/loads etc. This is a pretty slow process, and it has a tendency to crash on big jobs.
Ideally the templates should be assigned in a shared parameter in Revit, before the model is exported to IES. But I want to remove human error and let Dynamo do the hard bit (especially for jobs of 3000+ spaces).
The Goal: Have Dynamo read a spreadsheet & if the space name matches a Revit space then write the corresponding template to a “BPP IESVE Template” parameter.
I’ve spent hours working through other forum posts/tutorials, and tried countless methods but I can’t quite seem to get my head around how to compare the lists and reach my end goal. At this point I think I’m trying to run before I can walk in terms of my ability, but why not start 2019 with a challenge?
This is my starting code (I know the red section is totally wrong, I got a bit mad at my inability to make it work and deleted all my other nodes):
Also, I realise that I could simply export to Excel, change it in Excel then re-import to Revit, but I’m hoping I can achieve the template assignment completely in Dynamo.
If anyone could steer me in the right direction you’ll make my day!!
