Package for linking models


#1

Hi Dynamo users,

For those of you who need to link multiple Revit models, manage them in worksets and/or want to be efficient at that, I may have a solution for you. The small package LinkIt contains three nodes dedicated to three different ways of linking models.

Based on code found in the work by Augusto Goncalves/Nicklas Østertgaard, each node will link a model following a selected filepath and create an instance of that link. I added the possibility to choose import options (shared coordinates, origin to origin and base point to base point), the possibility to place your links on selected worksets, and another to pin them in place. The nodes support single or multiple inputs.

Nodes have been tested in Revit 2018 and 2019, and in Dynamo 1.3 and 2.0. Hopefully they’ll work in older versions as well. On a side note, you might have to select “Use Default Value” in Dynamo 2.0, i’m unsure about how the inputs behave when you download the package.

Feel free to share any experience you had with the package.

Jonathan
