Hello all, (I don’t know why it looked like that in the previous post and could not edit it).

And I have an error before the Phyton node saying that the custom node definition is not loaded (Element Id).

I have selected a titleblock that is loaded in the .rvt and it is also correctly loaded in the dynamo file (it does not show as yellow or red). I have also loaded a series of other nodes such as clockwork, steamnodes and lunchbox, among many others.

Additionally, I have tried as well the simpler nodes from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2F8APDm8v4 but it does not recognize the string for some reason.

Hello All,

I am having similar issue, I have been using Dynamo 8.0 with the latest daily build from last week.

“Warning: IronPythonEvaluator.EvaluateIronPythonScript operation failed.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “<string>”, line 45, in <module>
TypeError: ‘int’ object is unsubscriptable”

In addition, I have been looking for the node to extract the Item ID

 

Thank you for your help!

All,

You may want to have a look at the one i created, it was done in line with BS1192 drawing standard in the UK but may be worth a look in to and adapting/enhancing?

 

Download link with dynamo file and readme.

Hi Brendan,

 

Many thanks for your reply! I work in the UK as well, so the BS1192 comes very handy… I have tried your nodes but had some issues. For some reason I can’t add the values into the sheet (either manually or by Dynamo). Also, I got a warning/error about the range.

Please take a look at the following files and let me know your thoughts.KE Shared Parameters Sheet Creation From Excel-KE Test 1 Z1-A1 BS1192 Landscape2 (vertical title)

Brendan has pointed out that I have changed the shared parameters name in my Revit file, so there was a mismatch of names. I fixed that now, but am still having one error. If you guys know what is going wrong, please let me know.KE Shared Parameters

Hi Konrad,

I have tried yours as well but the issue I have is right at the beginning: Warning: One or more of the input types are not matching, please check that the right variable types are being passed to the inputs. Couldn’t find a version of ReadFromFile that takes arguments of type (string,string).

I just can’t get pass this because there is no other option for reading the excel file. Again, I have downloaded archi-lab, lunchbox, steamnodes, clockwork, etc… I have also tried it in Dynamo 0.7.5 with exact same results.

What am I missing here? This is very frustrating!! I can’t get Dynamo to do anything useful in any version…

I think this has brought about a change i need to do. I have done it but need to just double check there are no other issues. Once i have done this i will release a new version :slight_smile:
