Hello,I'm trying to use Dynamo to insert views from file, but I can't find a way to do it. I know it is possible through the API but I'm not very familiar with it.Any thoughts?
Are you looking to create views from excel?
Hi Kulkul,I could have explain my self better.What I'm trying to do is bring some sheets and drafting view from other .rvt files but using Dynamo.
@gbardales Refer this link https://forum.dynamobim.com/t/set-a-starting-view-to-multiple-background-opened-files/7663/9?u=kulkul will get you started.
@gbardales, here is the workflow you need. It might act weird with view templates though, (not too sure). You need to download Rhythm to get these custom nodes.
And here it is in action
And here is the dynamo graph. copyViewsFromDocument.dyn (8.6 KB)
It works great. I can transfer all the views that I need, but I lost all the content of the views.Is there a way to keep the content that the view has?
Darn, well those nodes were made primarily for copying types. I can take a look at this when I have some spare time. (Unless someone else does) Here is some information regarding this.
FWIW, it seems a little involved and may be more appropriate for a zero touch node.
ok. I'll take a look and see what I can find. If you don't mind please do take a look, when ever you have some time.
@gbardales Discussed here: ( I will send the graph once I update the nodes to Rhythm)
That's amassing. I really need to get more into Python.Question, Would this also work on bringing sheets with views on it?
@gbardales Unfortunately it does not.
also, DYN for the copy views/ elements in view http://sixtysecondrevit.com/dyn/copyViewsFromDocument.dyn
@john_piersonHi john, just wondering if you have a chance on posting or updating rhythm package as you describe on the above link? Thanks a lot for all your efforts.
It appears to be possible. I just have not built the workflow yet. I am finding that time is my biggest enemy lately.
