Reset Profiles on Walls

Hello all,
I’m working on Revit 2022, and I was hoping I could use the API methods that were introduced in this version to modify Wall Profiles. I’m mostly interested in accessing the RemoveProfileSketch Method

However I haven’t been able to find a node that does this.
How difficult would it be to write one? One that takes an Element input and applies the action to it.
If it’s a simple syntax, could you give me hand?
If it’s more involved than that, what similar nodes could I look into as an example?

(I’m about to get into studying Python and the Revit API. This is both a problem I need to solve and a learning experience.)

Thanks in advance for any leads.

Hello @Nicolas.Rivera and welcome

here an example

reset Wall

import clr
import sys
import System
from Autodesk.DesignScript.Geometry import *
import Autodesk.DesignScript.Geometry as DS

#import Revit API
import Autodesk
from Autodesk.Revit.DB import *
import Autodesk.Revit.DB as DB

#import transactionManager and DocumentManager (RevitServices is specific to Dynamo)
import RevitServices
from RevitServices.Persistence import DocumentManager
from RevitServices.Transactions import TransactionManager
doc = DocumentManager.Instance.CurrentDBDocument

toList = lambda x : x if hasattr(x, '__iter__') else [x]

#Preparing input from dynamo to revit
lstelems = toList(UnwrapElement(IN[0]))

#Do some action in a Transaction
for e in lstelems:
	if isinstance(e, DB.Wall):

OUT = lstelems

Thank you very much @c.poupin!
It works exactly as expected, and now I have a template for future reference on how to call individual API actions. This helps me a lot. Thank you very much!
