This video shows how to use Dynamo to read the read the material listed in a legend and filter the information to find what you need to make a wall types legend.
- [Instructor] In this video,…I'm going to show how to use Dynamo…to create a list of all the finished wall types…by filtering a selection of all the walls visible in a view…and a selection of all the walls in a Revit model.…A list of finished wall types will be used…to make our wall types graphic legend.…Let's get started.…From the Manage tab, open Dynamo…from the Visual Programming panel.…Click New to start a new workspace.…In the search bar, search active view.…
The All Elements in Active View node…will produce a list of all the elements visible…in the current view that you have open…in your Revit project.…If I hover over the bottom right corner of the node,…I'll see a list of 1851 items.…This long list of information…is every element that's visible inside of my view.…We're going to filter this list of information…to find only the items that are wall types,…and then filter those by their parameter values…to find only the finished walls inside of our file.…
Let's start by searching for get category.…We'll use this to find the elements…
