Set Scale of View Template

I’m running into issues using Dynamo to set the scale of a list of view templates. I’ve tried Element.SetParameterByName and Elements.SetParameterByNameTypeOrInstance from rhythm, and I’m getting a message that the parameter is read-only. Can the scale of view templates be edited through Dynamo?

I tested with “get parameter value” to make sure I had the right inputs for elements & parameterName, and that seems to work. I’m getting a warning & nulls during the Set Parameter part of the process.

Here the overview of my graph. Thanks in advance for your input!

In newer versions of Dynamo there appears to be a View.SetScale node. I believe this cannot be set via parameter.

If you are in a version of Dynamo without that node, then this python script should do it.

import clr

from Autodesk.Revit.DB import View

import RevitServices
from RevitServices.Persistence import DocumentManager
from RevitServices.Transactions import TransactionManager

doc = DocumentManager.Instance.CurrentDBDocument

#Preparing input from dynamo to revit
views = UnwrapElement(IN[0])
scale = IN[1]

for view in views:
	view.Scale = scale

OUT = views

View.SetScale worked like a charm. Thank you so much!
