Hi, I’m new here,
could anyone help me to: get the sum of the areas of an specific floor type in the Revit model, in dynamo?
I don´t want to select all the elements (floors) manually. I just want to tell witch floor type it is and get the sum of the areas of them. this will help me a lot.
Or just something like a node “All elements of floor type”… is it possible?
I don´t have any images because I´m not even close of achieving it I guess.
thanks a bunch in advance,
all elements of category ->
get parameter value by name - >
str contains ->
list filter by bool mask
With these nodes you should be able to filter the elements of a certain floor type. After you collected the relevant elements you just look up the area with
get parameter value by name and sum it up, there you go.
I’d suggest it is easier (and more flexible) to export the all the floor areas and types (using Dynamo), then use another tool to group/filter/sum/sort as needed.
Refer below links- I did this some time ago using PowerBI and was for volume, not area- the principle is the same.
I appreciate your help and I will try it. Thank you very much. I will reply later with the results
Thank you very much for the instructions, I got the results that I needed.
If you want to check my nodes (I know it´s a bit messy), here it is:
Hello Mr. Andrew Hannell,
As a beginner in dynamo I wasn’t aware of this tool. There´s no doubt I’m going to study it.
yep, that is pretty good.
However, if you just want a single number- possibly simpler to just use a schedule in Revit (summing areas)
No need to open Dynamo and run- the schedule will always be up to date
I Will give it a try as well, thanks a lot again.
