I have not used Dynamo yet and am eager to learn it.
First on my wish list is to find a way to automatically link a nested family’s parameters to ones in the host family.
I am making cabinets and have many different doors styles. I make the door styles as individual families, then load them into a cabinet family. Each of the nested door style families has multiple types defined in them. These are NOT shared families. I don’t want to do that with these.
So in a base cabinet host, I will load multiple door styles (3-drawer, door & drawer, etc.), each of which has multiple types (Shaker style, flat, etc.). At the moment I have to open the properties of each type in each door style and manually link multiple parameters to the host (e.g. width, height, materials). It could mean linking 6 or 7 parameters for each type, and there are probably 30 types to link. Lots of clicking (and the grey link box feels like it’s only 1 pixel wide so precise clicking is required.)
Is there a simple way to have Dynamo make those links for me? Is Dynamo the right way to do this? I’d like to load a nested family, run a script and have the links created. It would save massive amounts of time.
Thanks in advance,
