I’m not sure why it warning that “No Parameter Found By that name”.

Looking for advise on what i’m doing wrong here.
Please see attached screen shot.

Thank u for your helps!

Quick answer: try SetParameterByName(TypeOrInstance) from Rhythm

“Offset (default)” should be “Offset” in the string node. (default) in the family only shows whether it’s a type of instance property.

between family types and element.set parameterByName

You need a node to change from family type to a element because the input in the element.setparamterByName needs a element as input

I can change this title for you if you wish. If you need Dynamo in hurry situations, you should also consider to take a look at the Primer in your free time:

Hi @scao9

Clockwork package has a node called “Element.ParameterExist” to filter if parameter exist.
