Set Name of Import Instance


#1

Does anyone know how to change the name of an import instance in Dynamo/Python? Unfortunately, import instances have no useful parameters that can be set and we cannot add our own project parameters to that category. So the only way I can distinguish one import instance from another is via the Name, and I’d rather set the name of the import instance in Dynamo than select each import instance in Revit,-Edit Type-Rename.

I have a Python Script started (see image) but it keeps telling me that the Name of the “CADLinkType” is ReadOnly, which it obviously is not because I can overwrite it manually in Revit.
