If you select an element (a wall) that is inside of any linked file, you will find a parameter called “EAP” which is the same of WBS (Work Breakdown System). The value of this parameter is created by a sum of others parameters (Dynamo) which are also inside of the element that you selected before. This parameter (EAP) is used to indicate the task of the construction like Concrete Wall, Ceramic Floor, etc and is linked with a Planned Start Date and a Finish End Date that are in a Planning Schedule. However, in my Planning Schedule there are more than one “house” which differ by their “Number”.
Nowadays I do the following: I run the Dynamo script and the House “258” is created. After that I save it. This number comes from a Project Parameter. Then I change this Project Parameter to “260”, run the Dynamo script again and the save it again. This process is effective but it is not efficient.
With this problem in my hands what I have imagined: If one selects a linked file it will be possible to see the parameter “Name”, which is an instance parameter of each Linked File (probably in your case it will be Name. In my case is “Nome”, because my language is Portuguese).
My proposal is to change the “location” of the parameter that contains the number of the Houses from that Project Parameter (that I can change when the model of a single House is open) to this parameter “Name” of the Linked file. These linked files come from the same model that in the file that I’m sharing with you is the House “258”. I have already changed the value of the instance parameter “Name” to 258 in a model and 260 in other.
To finish I’m trying to create a Dynamo script that takes this parameter “Name” in each instance of linked file and set to the elements inside of each linked files what would create elements of the house 258 and elements of the house 260.
This is the maximun that I can do to explain to you. With Dynamo I could get the parameters from the lonked files, but in the moment that I make a routine to send back the summed parameter with different values it shows an error message.
