Hi, I just started learning Dynamo yesterday and through this forum I found quite a few useful tips.
I want to place my plumbing fixture families (for eg. WHB family I created with connectors for hot & cold water as well as drainage connector) in our model, but it needs to match the positions of plumbing fixtures in the Arch Model. For a start I am just placing the WHB-connector family at the moment instead of going through each floor searching where to put them and placing them manually.
My current workflow in Dynamo is I select the linked model, it searches for plumbing fixtures containing a certain name (“WHB” in this case), filter those out and gets the element location point, it then swops out that location with my family (see workflow attached).
It does place them, but not in the right orientation matching the arch model, also, I need to filter my search in such a way to pick up multiple WHB’s in the arch model, but named differently (in this case aslo pick up WHB that has “SAN-200” in name).
Is there a way to have a “tick” selection of families that I want to “swop” out with my families, and also make sure it matches the same orientation as those in the ARCH model? OR any suggestions on how to approach this differently?
