The link shown is picking the Room and applying Filled Region onto it…
This thread is that if the Floor Finish Parameter already has a value, say RED, and I created a filled region with the same name RED but is not applied to a room…how can I create the Filled Region from the Floor Finish Parameter to a room without picking.
Pardon me. I am totally new to this that is why I’m asking.
is it possible to create a filled region Type that is matching to what is specified in the Floor Finish?
Example I put Grey in the Floor Finish, how do I incorporate in the code to create a filled region type GREY? we commonly use Solid Transparent Fills…
I do like @Revit_Noob 's method because it gives finer control. If @Revit_Noob 's graph is not working, it may be because the upper right node is looking for non-lists, or maybe lacing. It would be easier to debug if you post the DYN and RVT.
I think this could still be an option if I understand your process though. The architects assign each room a finish code that already matches a filled region type so you can easily script finish code = filled region type, right? If you just set up your color scheme once (manually) so that each finish code equates to a different color (matching your filled region types) then you don’t have to run Dynamo every time you have an update, unless a new finish is added.
EDIT: I must have already checked out when I read this post last night. Are you looking to create the filled region type as well, based off the finish (color) from the Excel file? This becomes a little trickier because Dynamo creates colors by ARGB, meaning you won’t have names to choose from unless you create a dictionary with each color name and it’s ARGB value. It’s certainly possible and not really all that difficult but requires a lot of setup in your graph. Not as easy as saying “if the finish says GREEN create a GREEN color and use it in this fill region type.”
