I’m creating a dynamo graph to clean up models. Short summary of what i’m trying to do:
Open file --> audit, detach, preserve worksets
Clean up file --> delete certain sheets, delete all views not on sheets, delete and unload CAD links.
Save file and close --> compact file, save as central, is workshared, relinquish.
The file opens fine, saves and closes as well. But none of the actions I have assigned is completed. If I however perform the actions on an open document they work fine. Can anybody help me resolve this issue?
I would also love to add the ability to purge the document in the process. Not just once, but until 0 elements is left. I have seen a couple post for this, but none that did the trick for me.
Any help is much appreciated.
All the transactions must be done in the open document in the background.
In the picture of your graph, you are currently trying to clean the current document.
I hope that makes sense.
Almost worked like a charm. For some reason it leaves behind 1 of the sketch sheets…
Does anyone know how to implement a purge function? I’v tried with the one from the Orchid package (@erfajo), but it returns an error
“Warning: Document.Purge operation failed.
The managed object is not valid.”
I have also tried with this Python script: https://gitlab.com/MattTaylor/RevitPurgeUnused/tree/master
I got it working now. Didn’t connect it properly in the first place. It does however not completely purge the document, there are still some items left when I open the document afterwards.
there are several items you cant delete there must always be 1 view
always 1 floor
always 1 wall
Can you please let me know the name and package of the node you use here:
You can find this node in the Genius Loci package.
Thanks so much! This is a very useful package!
This is a great script for processing multiple files in a background very fast thanks to @klausvm
I have used it in a similar way but I have been trying to delete All 3d view templates and no good solution yet.
I found a great python script that does it for you but in a current Revit document so pretty useless if needed to be used a part of this cleaning script.
I think this scripts is @Konrad_K_Sobon ( thank you so much for publishing - it works great!)
Anyone has any ideas how to adjust this script to be able to read another revit file ( I have very limited or no python skills and need this being resolved asap)
I cant seem to get this to work. Please ignore the 2 nulls. Even without them I get this error
