Get and set all shared parameters and the categories they are assigned to


#1

Hi,

Im want to get all settings from the shared parameters in one projectfile and tranfer those to another projectfile.

these include categories, instance/type settings, group under discipline etc.

Thank you,

 

Marcel

marcel, i am wondering why you would want to transfer properties from one project to another using dynamo.

as far as i understand you want to move all properties. that can be achieved via “transfer project standards” or just sharing a shared parameter file.

i was thinking of a excel based solution once too. i got stuck when i tried to assign the paramter to element types. not technically but i didn’t find a data structure that would allow easy handling.

i was not satisfied with creating a column for each category, but think that that will be the only solution.

the rest like creating a parameter, making it shared, assign it to a category basically is not too hard

Thank you Peter,

I have not been taking time to think this through, your solution is much easier.
