Try to change subcategory

Hi all,

I’m trying to get the clockwork node SetSubcategory to work, but somehow it gives a false output every time.

It looks like I have all the components ready to make it work, to elements that I want to switch to the subcategory and the subcategory I want them to switch to.

What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance!

I’m not familiar with the node but my first guess would be to either run the graph in the family editor or run it on the family type rather than the individual instances.

In this case the Electrical Equipment family is a model-in-place component given it’s own subcategory in the model itself.

I can change the subcategory of the element manually just fine.

@Nick_Boyts is correct. That node was was written for family documents.

Has anyone run across a node that sets the subcategory of inplace families?

Hi @Ryan_Schultz2

@Andreas_Dieckmann 's has nodes for subcategories.

Per @Nick_Boyts’s comment, it appears to only work in the editor, not for inplace families.

Could you drop inplace family here?

Sure here’s the graph, and here’s the revit file.

…and the following is screenshot of graph…
