my name is Lorenzo, this is my first post.
I am using Dynamo because I have to place hundreds of elements in my project (lighting fixtures families, for instance) and every one of them has different parameters (Circuit name, Electrical panel name and so on).
With Rhino and Grasshopper I managed to read the DWG files (my input from the designers), my outputs are some TXTs files in which I have all the informations I need: the position of the elements and all the parameters for each of them.
Everything works fine, I import the TXTs in Dynamo and after I hit run I can see the families correctly placed in the project with the parameters I want.
But I can’t go on with my work, because if I insert the next set of TXT files in order to place another family in the project (for example the switches) everything i’ve done with the previous family disappears.
What I would like to do is to bake (like in grasshopper) the Family Instances in the Revit project, interrupting every bond between the instances and Dynamo and then using the same Dynamo doc to go on with all the other families. Is that possible?
I am using the “Place FamilyInstance by point and level” node to place them.
Thanks in advance to everybody!!
