I am new to Dynamo. I have seen few of my colleagues use it in the past but I never really tried it till now.
I have an ongoing task of exporting certain 3D views to Navis and I knew it could be done through dynamo. Thought I’d give it a shot . After going thorough some posts in this forum, I was able to figure it out. Added a prefix to filter out the views that need to be exported and used the GeniusLoci node (mentioned here so often) to export the views. Removed the prefix from the export’s name and gave the option to save it to a location. It ran well (Revit 2020, 21, 22) and I was able to export the views (w/o prefix) needed.
I wanted to add some UI and give the option of choosing which views ( from the filtered set) to export to the user. This is where I ran into some trouble. As you can see in the image, the MultipleInputform++ node from Data-shapes package shows the views that are selected but for some reason the “Export NWC in document” node doesn’t work now. When I start the run, I get the window with check boxes to select the views. I make the selections and hit “set values” . After this it just says “Run completed” and the directory is empty. I don’t even get a warning that there is something wrong/missing with this node. Not sure what is going on. I thought if the directory is not created beforehand it wouldn’t export, I created a new folder too but that didn’t work either.
I can’t upload my dynamo file as I’m a new user here so I’m adding any relevant info:
What am I doing wrong here? What do I need to change for it to run properly?
