How to create a new project parameter

Hello, I am trying to create what I thought would be the easiest project parameter but its not working. I looked this node up on Dynamo Dictionary but it is still rejecting it for some reason. Any idea why? Thanks!

There are nodes you can use to make this a little easier. The parameter groups start with “GP_”.


Thanks but I still think there is something wrong which text parameter is the correct one?

The Type was correct before.

Oh man, this is not an easy node. Now it doesnt like my category

You can’t assign parameters to Lines.

Well then we should be able to. That stinks. I mean they dont even have a comments parameter :frowning:

Can you change the category of a model line and then add a parameter to it?



If your model lines are mainly linear you could make a line-based Generic Model, and use Dynamo to replace your Model Lines with that family.

Thanks awilliams, but what I am trying to do is create a 3D grid and copy the grid information to the lines so I know which one is which. Which means that each line would need to be its own family and that would turn into a pain in the butt I think, but its ok, Ill just keep it for now. Thanks anyways!

Using a line based generic model family would work just the same as model lines, save for some errors that might turn up if you have non-linear grids

Edit: This screencast for making 3D grids with model lines might also be of use to you as well; it allows you to construct model lines identifying each grid via the DynamoText package


@Nick_Boyts thank you :grinning:I got an error in Parameter.CreateProjectParameter and by using Select BuiltIn Parameter Group it had been solved
thank you
