To and From Room to Door parameter flip

Hi all,

I am looking to grab a bunch of doors that all graphically are correct and flip their ToRooms just in the parameter value that appears in my schedule.

I have tried this on a test project:flip to and from rooms to doors.dyn (10.0 KB)

and there seem to be two problems:

  1. the toRoom and fromRoom values that i am getting from this clock work custom nod are not correct; they all just say “room”
  2. I can’t really access the toRoom as a door parameter.

fyi in the real project the purpouse of this is to make sure all En-Suite doors belong to the En-suites, even though they open outwards

Any advice would be appriciated!

Thank you!

Room is a category. You need to add Room.name and room.number to get room numbers and names.

There is one more thing than @Kulkul has pointed, and that is the importance of null values!

If you have doors in exterior walls --just one is enough!–, then you lists will be problematic!
This means that you need to filter for null values :slight_smile:

AND be aware, once you have ‘run’ to/from room the value is set! To change the values hereafter you need to follow this post!

thanks both;
fortunatelly i am only looking at interior doors;
That room.name nod, it doesn’t look like a package nod, but i can’t seem to be able to find it, does it have another original name?

Great! I have made it work
Thank you both very much :smile:flip to and from rooms to doors.dyn (10.4 KB)

Room.Name is an OOTB node. In general I only used OOTB nodes. I did also use the Clockwork node “Doors.Rooms” as you did. I will recommend that you use the OOTB node for phases.

If you only uses doors which are internal, then you could do it this way.
