    Good tip , does that work with nested families?

    Hi Marcelo,

    Will this also allow us to change all types that are in groups? Or will dynamo respect Revit's regular behaviour in this regard?

    By the way I think that the first time I saw this method used in Dynamo was by Andreas Dieckmann, about two years ago.

  • Antony McPhee

    Can you use this method to create a new type?
