Getting Wall Finish Material


I’m trying to get my wall finish materials by room faces. Anybody knows what’s the best approach?

Thank you!

You’ll need Python for this. Turn the room in to a solid in Python with Spatial Element Geometry and then you can pull the Material Element ID from the Bounding Element Face.

Thank you for your response sir! All of my approaches from Dynamo were failed when I wanted to grab the face of the bounding element. I don’t think it worth to share them. I am not familiar with Python that much. Do you know any source that can help me with that?

Google, as always, is your best friend. I learned a lot be reverse engineering others’ programs. Still don’t know it well enough to start from scratch!
