There are many ways to select elements in Revit using Dynamo. The simplest way to select is with basic selection nodes. These allow you to interact directly with Revit and make selections.
- [Instructor] In this video,…I want to talk about simple selection.…Now you can see that I have a Revit file opened,…that has geometry in it this time.…So, unlike some of the previous videos,…where I just started in an empty file,…here, I've actually got some objects.…And ultimately, our goal, as we've already discussed,…is to place elements along these curved green lines.…So what I want to do in this video is,…talk about a really simple way…to actually select those lines…and bring them into the graph.…Now, I'll go ahead and start a new graph for this example,…just so that it's nice and clean.…And the two nodes that we're going to focus on are…really simple nodes here, under Revit and selection.…
And there's one called select model element, singular,…and then one right below it called select model elements,…plural, with an s.…Now I'm going to bring in both of those…and kind of position them somewhere on my screen here.…And you'll see that both of them…are in this yellow, unsatisfied state.…And it tells us right here what's going on.…
