Sometimes I have had the following challenge, when working in Revit.
It is not a problem as such, but rather irretating, when you work with many elements in the model.
This is an example of what happens:
- I place 4 doortypes in my model and give them all a Type Mark: D1, D2, D3 and D4.
- In a following revision I delete the door With Type mark: D3, and now it is no longer in the model - although still in the document.
- Later i want to place a new door into the model and for specific reasons I would like its Type Mark to be D3.
However if I just name the Type Mark in the new door D3, I will get a warning saying: "Elements have duplicate “Type Mark” values.
- I am now missing an efficient method for “cleaning” Type marks from the non active doors in the document, so I can apply them to other doors.
I have tried to fiddle around with a way to retrieve ALL the doors in the document (not just the ones showing in the model!) and also get a list displaying their Type Mark with the aim to remove them the doors not used in the model.
However, I can’t find any command in Dynamo which gives me what I want, and I haven’t found anything similar in the forum either, so I hope someone in here can help me out
(I know it’s fully possible to retrive these elements and parameters from Objects if they are placed in the model, but i cannot figure out what is possible with elments or values which are not “active” in the document…)
Hope someone has a tip…
