Revit Build


#1

Morning all,
using Rhythm i can easily get the Revit version but is there any node(python) to get the Revit Build Number of a file by any chance?
Thanks

Hi @Daniel_Hurtubise,

Do you mean something like this ?

Revit version rvt-files_by directory.dyn (5.7 KB)

Kind regards,
Mark

Morning Mark,
considering the watch is empty it’s hard to know but :slight_smile:

I’m after the build version ( 20170927_1515(x64)) the version is accessible with clockwork

Thanks

Sorry, this Python script wil only give you “Autodesk Revit 2017”.
Maybe it can be edited to suit your needs, but that’s not my cup of tea :disappointed_relieved:

Kind regards,
Mark

There’s already a few nodes that returns the version.

Thanks for your time though

I don’t think build number is a property of a file. You can open a revit file with more than 1 build number. A build number is a property of the Revit application so will differ per user.

It will be saved in the file by the last person to sync actually


#8

Where in the file is this saved? Can you share a screenshot? I thought the only way to find out was looking at the ‘About’ section under the ‘Help’ dropdown - so this will be user defined as @T_Pover said.

You got it :slight_smile:Open the RVT as a text file actually… just be ptient :smiley:


#11

I see, I can’t seem to be find a way to retrieve this information through the Revit API though.


#12

Ok i feel better, me neither :slight_smile:

Hi @Daniel_Hurtubise

Is this what your looking for?


#14

Bingo :slight_smile:


#15

Don’t forget to mark the post as solved. You’re welcome!


#16

That only works on the current document though right?
I need to get the info for a list of files that are not open, like the Revit Version


#17

I think its possible few minutes…
