Dynamo – Export Family To RFA by Categories

That is the same function of Case App Free – Export Families To RFA Files (By Category), however case app is not shared this app anymore.

So i just make one for myself, simple put in the Path and Categories, the Python will take the rest.

Again this custom node will upload on the Hot Gear Package.

Dynamo – Join Type

This time just fill in the Elements ,the node will batch change the wall join type of both front and the end of the elements. (Because that’s hard to control where is the elements front or the end you want to change, so that become the both.)

Again the node will available on Hot Gear Package.

p.s. do not run this node automatic that will Clash the revit by some reason 😦

Dynamo – Parameter Export and Import (2)

Again the custom node was published on the Hot Gear Package.

For the input of the data i decide to separate 2 parts.

First part is read the data on excel and rebuild the list of parameter name and value. Then select what data you want to write in the revit by choice the index of parameter list,  you can select more than one parameter at the same time. But if you add the custom column on excel, make sure it follow the alphabetical order.

Second part is set parameter, convert the value for different data type(String, Number, Integer, etc)  and unit if necessary(length, area, volume, etc), final check and Run It.

p.s. Sometimes Revit use other unit to import (e.g. feet), after Run It make sure the result at the end is same as Excel.

Dynamo – Parameter Export and Import (1)

I just published the node on Hot Gear packages.

For Normal Family Type Parameter / Instance Parameter you just need insert the category and excel file path, it will export all family include of the Category / Element in the Document.

For System Family you need to insert the Element Types and excel Path.

If File Path is no selected it will auto open the new excel file.

The next will be the Import of the excel but it’s hard to all in one auto fill in the right place with the right data format.

Dynamo – Web Request

Web Request only let you get the text of the web page, sounds nothing amazing, but when you want to know the stock price of your own however you don’t want anyone to know your checking the market.

That is it, amazing web request.

First the hardest part is you need the web site that allow you to request the real time designation stock price for free, and that need to respond with json or xml.

Otherwise that would be the whole page of html you need to deal with.

Once you get the date you just need to map which is the price of the stock, rise, fall, etc.

and finally setting up with Dyno Browser that is the result.

Stock Price

Compare with other chrome stock apps that is nothing special, but that’s means Dynamo not only communicate with revit it’s also have a possibility to run with other web resources.
