Orchid update feed

Not sure that library creation is doable (been ages since I looked). I always found it easier to manage them in a file and move the materials from file A to file B by assigning them to a family in file A, and moving the family into file B.

Yet an update with +20 new nodes…
Nodes for BuiltInParameter. Nodes for copying and transferring elements between different document. Nodes for opening, save and closing central files. Nodes for linking files into documents.

Hi, I took the contents from the dynamo Revit folder on my local dynamo and put it in the server folder for everyone and the nodes I use for a script are working now. However I’m worried about the contents of the dynamo core folder on my local. Do I need to copy that anywhere on the server. Where would I? Or should I have the dynamo core content for everyone to use and not the dynamo revit contents. Thanks for any help. Trying to make sense of stuff

The stuff I havnt copied across… Thinking about it, dynamo core is just a different application to dynamo Revit?

Is there a way to avoid the prompts for file names if I print individual sheets? I am trying to automate printing hundreds of sheets as separate files and I am trying to get each file to autoname itself in consecutive order.

I believe that may be a setting of your printer? I use PDF creator and can set it to not prompt for save…

Is it possible to get a whole list of existing Paper Sizes from the selected printer? I think the same way as on your node “Print PaperSizes”, and I already try to do that but I’m not so much good in it. Please can you help me with it? :slightly_smiling_face:

import clr
clr.AddReference(‘ProtoGeometry’)
from Autodesk.DesignScript.Geometry import *

clr.AddReference(“RevitAPI”)
import Autodesk
from Autodesk.Revit.DB import PaperSize

Pr = UnwrapElement(IN[0])
pagelist = PaperSize.GetType

for p in pagelist:
	x = Pr.Name(p)

OUT = x

Hey,

Eric’s not on here any more, perhaps post here instead…
