I have an small excel table example. The original is bigger. There are rows with different configurations and columns with parameters. These parameters are already created in a Revit family (with non existing values). Now I like to choose a row in Dynamo and transfer these values from excel to the instance parameters in the Revit family.
I have prepared the lists. Her can u see the result in the green groups:
The whole script looks like this:
Maybe I do something wrong with the “Set Active Family Parameter By Name” Node [data shapes package]. My attempt was to set the datatype of the values, because only the text parameter are working.
How can I change the data type of the values, depending on the data types extracted from the revit family parameters? Is it necessary?
According to the Parameter type, I need to convert the units. E.g. an length parameter needs a different conversion as an area parameter. Any idea how to choose automated the correct conversion?
