Revit and Dynamo "type" objects


Ive just started out on learning the Revit API and scripting. Through reading and research, I have come across a few instances where theres a need to convert between “dynamo” object and “revit” objects.
My questions are:

  1. Is there any way I can identify which is which? (A rule of thumb maybe.)
  2. Where can I find the API documentation for dynamo objects?

Sorry if my understanding is incorrect at present state, even so, I hope someone will be willing to correct and enlighten me!
Thanks in advance

This is an old post but the Wrapping/Unwrapping and Geometry conversion sections are still relevant. Python will take care of converting to Dynamo objects sometimes. Most of the time it will be pretty obvious what is a Revit object (dot notation) and what is a Dynamo object (more user friendly).

Also, if you’re just getting started it may be easier to learn dynamo basics before you jump into python. Walk before you run and all that.

Thanks Nick, link was really helpful :slight_smile:
