I have been spinning my wheels for a while now and I need some help maybe getting pointed in the right direction. I am an MEP engineer and most of the how-to’s and tutorials are set up by and for architectural elements. Usually we can find a work around to get to the same results but this work flow has me stumped.
I have been asked to generate a dynamo script that takes all of the VAV terminal units in a project and exports there parameter values to excel, so that we might override the values and import the new values into the individual instances of the families. Unfortunately, the terminal unit family lives under the mechanical equipment element type and I am having trouble filtering the elements list down to just VAV units (getting rid of air handling units, plumbing equipment, exhaust fans, etc).
Can someone help me find a thread that already answers this type of dynamo script?
If this bridge has not been crossed yet, how might we filter a list of elements to a specific family?
Thank you in advance,
