Load Revit families from list

Given a list of family names and paths (either mapped to a drive or UNC path), is there a node or script that would load those families into a Revit project file? It doesn’t need to place them, just load them.

I believe you’ll need to tap into the API for this one. There’s an API call that can load a family and all its types with just the path to the family file:

However you might have some problems, if you’re trying to overwrite an existing family.

 

There’s an example on how to implement that class here:

Hi,
I’m beginner on DynamoBIM and in Python script. I need also to automate loading of families in a project. Is it possible to have a view of all your Python script?

Thank you!!! :+1:
