I have a few different reporting nodes in my Bakery package for this as well:

categoryTools

Don’t forget the collaborative spreadsheet of Revit Categories, to which Luke is a contributor. Lots of good information there

Thanks for the link. I was looking for something like that.

Hi, I’m new user to Dynamo ver 0.9

I didn’t find the “Get Categories” in Dynamo 0.9. Maybe the name of the node is chaged? Where to look for this node?

Could you please tell how the full list of Revit Categories

is obtained by Dynamo?

Thank You,

Michael_E

 

The node is called “Categories”, and it’s located in Revit->Selection

:slight_smile:

I tried the FaceSplitter Category but I’m guessing that’s not the right one. I’d like to be able to select all the lines generated from the split face tool. If you select the line, revit lists it at a Split Face : Face Region : Split Face. short of picking the element individually, what category do those fall under? Thanks in advance.

Where do those categories appear in Revit. They are different from family categories so I am not sure which one I should use to obtain parameters. For example I want to get a parameter Structure from Wall family.

hello @Luke_Johnson

Some of the cats not correct.
