Release Selection of Elements so they don't delete when routine is run with new selection

#1

Hi, First post seeking help here… I have a Dynamo routine that will read a room parameter, then place all families from a specified folder with the same name as the value of the parameter. Problem is, when I select the next room manually using the selection node, the families previously placed will delete when the new set is placed. How can I prevent that?
Thanks,
Greg Peterson

You may use bakery package to pin old created elements due to first run.

The pin object works, but the selection of those objects is still not released when running routine on next selection using Select Model Element node. I select the room, then families are placed by the room type parameter. Those families become the active selection so that when I select the next room to place content with, the content places but the previous families delete.
