A common favorite feature among Dynamo users because it's extremely powerful and quite easy to learn, this video introduces the process of using Dynamo to set a new value to Revit element parameters. It distinguishes the different process required for writing type parameters versus instance parameters.
- [Instructor] Some of the most popular…and powerful Dynamo workflows involve interacting…with the parameters of Revit elements.…In an earlier video in this chapter, we used Dynamo…to read parameter values from a list of Revit elements.…In this video, let's use Dynamo to write data…to the parameters of Revit elements.…I'm going to start off in the 3D view of my Revit project,…named Furniture Only, which is hiding…all the categories expect for furniture.…Running the Dynamo graph…for this video's exercise file, there's a couple of things.…
First, Dynamo's going to open…the Excel file that's it's reading,…which we worked on in an earlier chapter.…At the same time, its created several new shelf families…in our Revit project, using the FamilyInstance ByPoint node.…We covered how to use this node…in an earlier video in the chapter.…The Excel file we're reading contains information…about the different types of retail shelf families,…that we're now placing into our Revit model.…
Information like each shelf's height,…width, and the number of shelves.…
