How to tag DirectShape elements

Hello, I created some DirectShape elements assigning them the “Generic Models” category and added to them some new parameters through “Project parameters” in Revit. Is there a way to tag the DirectShape elements?

Hi @maito78

You can use “Generic Model Element Tag”.

Hi @Kulkul, thanks for the answer.
I tried to tag directshape elements from Revit but it did’t work. I loaded a tag for “Generic Model” and used the “Tag by category” tool, maybe I did something wrong.
I tried also with Dynamo, with a built-in node and also with a node from archi-lab, but Dyanmo crashed with both nodes.
Attached a test file:
tag.dyn (46.9 KB)
tag.rvt (2.8 MB)

I forgot to say that I use Revit 2016 and Dynamo 1.2.1.

For the moment I solved using “FamilyInstance.ByGeometry” from the “Springs” nodes. It is only slower in the generation of the families.

Hi @maito78

I have revised the script here tag for maito .dyn (12.8 KB)

Its working now.

@Kulkul thank you very much for the detail answer.
I know how to tag with Dynamo, but I was wondering if it is also possible to tag DirectShapes or if they have some limitations.
