So, for a first go, teach myself effort I’ve attempted to export data from a Revit furniture schedule into Excel. We use an Access DB to prepare Furniture Spec’s and we use the Revit schedule to gather basic “inventory” information from the model: Type Mark (renamed to ItemCode), Room Name, and Room Number. I’ve stumbled my way into a solution that works (more-or-less) and would appreciate any review/comment from the experts. I should note that I had to cobble together an “Elements in Room” node as it came up unsupported after the 8.0 upgrade. There are a few issues - this solution doesn’t appear to recognize and exclude Design Options in the model and for some reason it appears to have issues with Furniture items that are wall-hosted.
And this brings me to the big question. Since the data is already formatted exactly the way we need it in a Schedule, couldn’t someone develop a process that “gathers” data from a Revit Schedule and brings it in to Dynamo?
Appreciate any, all help and my apologies if I’m going over ground that’s been well covered. I’m just starting to get my feet wet here.
