I am wondering if it is possible to write a script that loads a family with an associated type catalog into a file and filters the type selection based on an excel spreadsheet.
I have a large number of families cached within a type catalog and I want to load 2 or 3 three of the families within the type catalog into my model. Our firm has a standard naming convention and so I know the names of the families I am looking for, it is simply a bother to have to manual scroll through the type catalog every time I want to load these families.
In addition to the naming convention, we have an excel spreadsheet that tracks the families we are working with. I have already got my family name tracked as a value within the spreadsheet.
Is there a way to write a script to load a family and automatically filter the types loaded from the type catalog based on the preexisting spreadsheet?
