Thanks for the responses! Granted, i find rehashing people’s examples a far more enjoyable way of learning something new than just reading text and doing given examples. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying i won’t read Primer and do the examples, just the provided examples will be focusing on things i don’t see myself ever using (however never know might learn something useful for later Certainly was the case with Revit learning).
@Nick_Boyts - I agree with you about people complaining, I too get frustrated with people going on revitforum or Revitcity with such opinion. However, my primary frustration isn’t the willingness to learn or the application itself, its the fact that i cannot following Youtube examples of things i’d like to achieve due to not having the packages (or being able to add them). So i felt I was being ham-stringed before i can gather a pace. Granted, this doesn’t prevent me from learning from primer, but as i said above, I like to mix it up / remind myself what i’m working towards. Thanks for the motivational boost and explanation of things being renamed or removed, that is actually something i hadn’t considered!
@erfajo - Thanks for the instruction to try your package and link to the example given within Adding Shared Parameters. That with your package means I can actually experiment and see how and why it works. Apologies that my last message was poorly written, my intent was not to add a parameter and/or data value to a family file (.rfa) but actually to add a data value to the family files loaded within the project environment.
@JacobSmall - I’d like to be ambitious enough to! But that is likely way off for me atm! Sure will provide a screen shot of what i get with Dynamo.
Dynamo Core - 22.214.171.12455
Dynamo Revit - 126.96.36.19965
Your example makes sense in regards to ‘d)’ thank you.
@PauLtus - to confirm, ‘graphs’ are “Home Workspaces” ? So in your examples you would typically break apart a node (within a package) to show how it functions? Is there a means of effectively exploding these nodes to do this or do you just build it yourself from preexisting knowledge?
Thanks again for all of your times and responses. Feeling much more invigorated to jump into the learning seat again.
