I’m trying to extract beam offset levels after filtering a larger group of beams.
It appears the “Start Offset Level” parameter will report successfully IF i select the model elements and plug this straight into “Element.GetParameterValueByName” This gives me all values of an unfiltered list.
What I need is to filter the list FIRST and then obtain the offset values. I have used Boolean mask to do this and it’s worked. However, the resulting list will not extract the offset values… The dataset obtained by the boolean mask gives me the family type, family and element id. From this I would expect to pull out any parameter but it doesn’t work. I have also tried extracting the “family” and “type” This doesn’t work either, any thoughts on how you obtain instances parameters from a list of elements that give element information and ID’s
The first image below shows the dataset obtained through “select model elements” then plugging into the get element value node for the required parameter. The other two images show a failure to obtain the offset values. The dataset is slightly different but still gives element id’s and family information. I’m a little puzzled.
