Setup Copy/Monitor from linked file using Dynamo/API?


#1

Quick question

Is it possible to setup a Copy/Monitor from a linked file using Dynamo/Revit API? and how?

:smile:


#2

Are you referring to this kind of workflow?

naah, I just need to setup a copy monitor on a linked file as a part of a larger “setup models” script. But thanks for the suggestion anyway. :slight_smile:

Copy Monitor won’t ever be of much use to Dynamo until it’s functionality is exposed to the API. If you think this is important/useful - please vote at:

Thanks, that’s why we have no components or I couldn’t find it in the API… voted. :slight_smile:

Has Anyone used Dynamo to copy the instance parameters into copy monitored families?
