Select Rooms from referenced file / Workflow suggestions

Hi :slightly_smiling_face:
I´ve got a technical question.

I wish to create a script which creates cropped plans from a referenced file.
In my “normal” script i just select a room, and create a new plan with a cropped area around my room, but I can´t select any rooms from a referenced file, at least Springs Nodes “Current selection” does not show anything.

We try to work with a new file to create our wall elevations in a different file to save filesize in the main project file. For the wall elevations we also have to link around 300 dwg files which would flood the mainfile with “crap” :slight_smile:

Did you maybe have the same problem / did you find a solution? Do you have a better workflow?

Kind regards,

Hi @Jannis,

  • If you want manually select your linked room(s), you can use the SelectLinkedElement node in Springs package.

  • To collect all your linked rooms at the same time, you can use the Collect.LinkedInstanceElements node.
