I was trying to take some pieces of this and apply it to a Graph i was making that would check all Project Families for any imported DWGs. I was able to get the graph to function, but the Output names of the families could sometimes be confusing as to what family type a particular family was (better family naming conventions might help… but that’s beside the point).
So - i wanted to use the “read text” trick to get the family categories for the problematic families, and include it in the output.
The problem I am having is twofold… Originally, i was getting error messages that the .rfa files couldn’t be read by the File.ReadText node, becasue the files were all being used by some other thing at the time.
I added passthroughs to try to get the two part sof the graph to work in sequence, but then i started getting warnings that “Cyclic Dependencies Exist Between Two Variables”
I am not sure if that is now why the .rfa files aren’t being read - or if the issue is still that the files are “busy”
Anyway - here is my graph and .dyn file. Any thoughts?
Check Project Families for CAD.dyn (26.6 KB)
