Hello good people. I am very new to Dynamo and this post is actually about exporting and importing data between Revit and Excel.
But please hear me out as I understand there are loads of topics addressing this topic littered everywhere on this forum.
Below is my challenge:
I have a schedule specifically created to keep tab on furniture as design progresses. I want to be able to transfer the information back and forth between Excel and Revit. I have some calculated formulas within the schedule. Please see a visual explanation of the schedule below:
Like I said I am new to Dynamo and was trying to do this using tutorials and various forum posts but honestly I got stuck as I wasn’t even sure if I am on the right path. Please see attached the nodes I was working on before getting stuck.
My questions are:
- Is it even possible what I am trying to achieve?
- Is it possible to make dynamo to actually extract values from an actual schedule in Revit? i.e. Make a schedule normally in Revit, make nodes to report the values from the schedule? Reason I asked this is if it would make it easier to create nodes? See illustration below
