I’m new to Dynamo and the forums. For my first dynamo script i want to create sheets from an Excel. I have seen that many people have done this before me, but there is 1 thing i cant get to work and I havent seen anyone else posting the problem I have.
The problem is:
For inserting titleblocks in to the Sheet.ByNameNumberTitleBlockAndView node i used the Family types node. This works, but…
I wish to be able to load titleblock families from an file location, instead of standard families wich are loaded in the project.
There for i used the filepath and filefrompath node but this didnt work. How should i make this work?
the node File Path seems to work well with the Document.LoadFamily node
could you please send over your .dyn file?
thnx for your response.
I tried using that node but for some reason it kept giving me an null value. So i started a new Dynamo and i tried it there with just those 2 nodes ( File Path and Document.LoadFamily) and then it worked.
So i think there might be something wrong with my script. I have 0 programming experience so I think I also might be running into some problems because i dont know wat is happening in the background.
This is wat it looks like up close:
And this is the overview:
at some point i had just A4 portrait working, the other sizes didnt work, but it created only 1 sheet. (in my test Excel sheet i have 10 sheets) before hand, when I used the Family Type node as input, it did create 10 sheets.
here’s my current Dynamo file:
Sheets aanmaken verschillende formaten.dyn (85.2 KB)
I am sorry for the big post xD. I realize i’m a big noob in the Dynamo world so i apreciated every word of advice ;).
your script seems to work well. i think you might need to change two things:
A0 metric.rfa (308 KB)
here the .dyn file and the excel that i used:
drawing list.xlsx (8.1 KB)
Sheet.ByNameNumberTitleBlockAndView.dyn (23.5 KB)
I put lacing on longest in old script but didnt work.
I just started over with a new script and i got it working with the: Document.LoadFamily Node from the clockwork packages. I think I bugged the old script somehow.
Thank you for the Help Mauro
