Getting information from linked Revit model

I know there are ways to use Dynamo to open a linked file (in the background) and copy elements from it to the host model.

What I’m trying to find out from all of the experts is what limitations may exist in doing this (I know, this is a pretty loaded request).

Thanks in advance!

Link a model manually and bind it. All the problems and limitations you see are the same ones you’ll be confronted with using the Revit API. Of course, you could develop your own custom infrastructure for say, ‘importing’ Views, but it will be limited to the available methods in the API.

You don’t even need to open the model in the background, you just have to specify the document you’re copying from and the one you’re copying to. Model elements will copy the same way as if you had tab-selected and copy/pasted them.
