Hi, I’m attempting to populate an empty Revit file with Revit families, based on an Excel file that holds all the family names and configurations.
Some families will ‘break’ as a result of the configuration (delete type), and have to be removed from the project in order to continue.
The families are all placed according to the Excel sheet, and a report of deleted families is written back to the Excel sheet.
All the families are placed and configured neatly, some families did break as a result of an impossible configuration. However I can’t manage to compare the families that survived the dynamo script, vs the ones that had to be deleted.
What I tried:
I attempted to read all placed families of that category, and compare them to the list of families that I intended to read. However, it reads all the families at the beginning of the script before they are configured (and deleted).
I inserted a pause which didn’t get the right result.
The deleted families are labeled as ‘empty’ families however I can’t evaluate that. If I translate this to a string, it does show its proper name.
Does anyone have a suggestion how I might tackle this?
Thanks in advance!
