Material: Volume Extraction

Hello, Trying to get the Material: Volume extracted out with Dynamo to eventually convert to CY to write to a parameter with my Structural Framing elements. I am close with finding the right ElementID of the material but cannot get it to extract to CF I find in the Material Schedule. Anyone know what parameter the Volume is set to for Materials??



Try the Element.Parameters node to see all the parameters available… Also if you google ‘Revit Lookup’ you’ll find an Addin which lets you interrogate the Revit elements inside Revit to help see what data is available and how it is structured.

Hope that helps,


Yes this opened up a huge door to find other items I’ve been searching for. Unfortunately I am still unable to find the Volume parameter in the Schedules. This seems to be deep within the program somewhere?
