Is there a "Get Element Type By Name" work flow?

I’d really like a “ElementTypes.ByName” node work flow. Like the “Category.ByName” node but for element types instead of categories.

I’m asking because I find using drop-down lists will produce different results depending on which version of revit you open dynamo in whereas a “get by string” setup remains consistent.

Any ideas?

Hi @Bren,

There is a ElementType.ByName in Clockwork package that may suit your needs.
