Selecting Nested Families

Is there a node similar to All Elements of Category that can also select the nested families?

If not, how would i go about selecting nested families?

If the nested family is Shared and listed in the Project Browser under Families then you should be able to access it using the Family Types node

Otherwise, you will first need to check Shared in Family Categories and Parameters (in the Create tab) in the relevant Family file and reload it into the project.

Hi Chueb,

You can also try looking at “FamilyInstance.SubComponents” custom node from clockwork package.


Can we automate the " check Shared in Family Categories and Parameters" part in some way?

In my case I can not use the shared parameter option. I am importing geometry from other CAD programs and get problems if I check shared parameter. Is there a way to it without the shared parameter?
