String doesn't get parameter


#1

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to connect Revit to Excel and it was supposed to be very easy and simple, but the string node is not connecting to the parameter I need… The watch node doesn’t show anything :frowning: what am I doing wrong ?

Thanks a lot

The problem you’re having is that Description and Type Mark are type parameters so they’re handled a little different in Dynamo. You need to feed the node an element type to extract it’s type parameter rather than individual elements to extract instance parameters. Below is a couple different ways to achieve this, both use a custom node from the rhythm package.

Hello!

 

I got it, but now how do I connect those data to the excel file I’m trying to create? Because using the Element Set Parameter By Name there is a connection between the parameter and the lists, but using the rhythm node there isn’t…

 

Thanks :confused:
