Hi… I’m an absolute beginner in Dynamo so not exactly sure of the ways that it is going to help me but I can see the potential is there to be unlocked if I can pick up some skills.
I am a Revit technician (Structural) and have a need to improve Revit’s limited pdf creation tools and following various online research and painstaking baby steps I have written my first Dynamo Graph which does do what I need but in quite a basic way, but I would appreciate some simple guidance on how I can get over a hurdle as follows…
I sometimes work on projects that have strict naming conventions for issued pdf files, which are a bit of a pain to change manually so have written a graph to do it for me. At the moment I have got it set to rename five files as that’s how many I am using in my test set up, but obviously each project may have a different number of sheets therefore I am wondering what my options are for building into my graph some way of Dynamo working out how many files it needs to rename ?
I’m guessing this is obvious to experienced users but with my basically non-existent Dynamo/Programming experience, I have no idea what to look for beyond this point in my graph. I understand that this problem may have been solved/discussed many times in the past but if I just copy what someone else has created I won’t learn a thing so I wanted to try to solve the problem as much as I could.
Does anyone have any suggestions ?
This is a screenshot of my graph (assuming I have uploaded correctly)…
