Set type parameter of system family


#1

I finally got to test drive Dynamo today and am super excited about it. I apologize for my terminology, but I’m not a programmer. I was wondering if it is possible to change the value of system family type parameter? For example, if I wanted to change the type mark parameter of a ceiling or floor. I know it’s not hard to do in Revit but I’m wondering if Dynamo can do it anyway.

Also, it it possible to list a ceiling family’s parameters and then turn the parameter names into a string? Im trying to override ceiling surface colors based on type and height.

Thank you!

These aren’t the nodes you are looking for… 10

Thank you, those nodes work, but require a little bit more effort than I was hoping. I was hoping that instead of typing the name of the parameter in a string node, that there would be a way to select a parameter in a list and then pass the selection into the “parameter name” port. Guess I’m lazy…:slight_smile: Thank you!
