I would like to control exported objects from Revit to Speckle by assigning a parameter value to objects.
It works in general but seem to fail on Mass Floor Category. Shared parameter is assigned to both Mass and corresponding Mass Floors but only Mass is exported.
If same objects are exported by category (Mass and Mass Floor category) both are exported.
If same objects are exported by selection (Manually Selected) both are exported.
Export by parameter gives more granular control over exported objects so would be nice to have this working well. Help would be appreciated.
Hey @Maciej_Sochacki , welcome to the forum!
The export by parameter option has been replaced in 2.14 by a more powerful alternative that uses the Revit filters, have you tried that?
You probably need to update your connectors let me know how it goes!
Hi @teocomi ,
Thank you for your reply. I have now upgraded and tested new filter functionality. I might have to do few more tests but from what I see sadly the filter option does not seem to export mass/mass floors from links that satisfy filter condition.
All give a little bit more background to what I am trying to achieve.
We have a masterplan project with multiple buildings modelled as masses with mass floors.
We collaborate with other architects and some plots/buildings are modelled as links that we receive from them. Some buildings are as live mass (with multiple design options).
What I would like to achieve is to export mass and mass floors elements only. Some of those will come from links some of those will come from particular design option from live model.
The only option that seem to work for me is the selection where I can select both links and live masses.
But the slight issue with this method is that it exports entire content of a link rather than just mass and mass floors and ideally we would limit exported data to only those elements.
Thanks for the extra context @Maciej_Sochacki , we’ll investigate on our end a bit more then, it seems that maybe the connector is not converting Mass floors, but it sounds like a quick addition - we’ll keep you posted!
