MEP Spaces from Architectural Rooms_Name problem

Hi All,

I recreated Dynamo Script where MEP spaces are created from Architectural Room in MEP model. I used help from this forum and Dynamo MEP package.

The problem that I have is with naming of the MEP spaces. When script takes over names from the architectural model they all have numbers at the end, for instance:

In architectural model I have room named “Office” and it has number “22”. When the script copies that into the Space, room is named “Office 22”. How can I modify script that only uses name and not number? See picture for further explanation.

Best regards, Branimir


You are right, I will change that in the DynamoMEP package. In the meantime, you can use this workaround with Element.GetParameterValueByName from the original rooms


Hi @Simon_Moreau,
Since you’re talking about updating the DynamoMEP package, for information the DuctTape and DynamoMEP packages are incompatible. I don’t know why.
Any clue @john_pierson ?

Like they won’t worry simultaneously?

DynamoMEP package disappears in the library when Duct Tape is installed.
Strange isn’t it ?

Eh, I bet I screwed something up. Let me check, that package needs updated anyway.

Mine works fine. Run it the first time and it places all of the spaces on every floor.
Run it a second time, as is, and it will update all of the names and numbers as well.
