Is it possible to set a family type parameter

I am trying to set a parameter wat should not be a big thing but in real life is giving me some headaches

i want to set the manufacturers name to a other name via a import from a excel sheet but that seems to be a hard job for some reason

Hi @David_Pfeiffer,

Are you trying to write a Type or Instance parameter ?
If it is a Type parameter, try to add the “Element.ElementType” node
Place it between “All Elements of Category” and “Element.SetParameterByName”.

Kind regards,



wat i am trying to do is change the manufacturers name . the parameter is located in the edit type section and not directly in the properties bar


Thanks allot

Thank you very much. it works
