    Select 'Basic Walls' Only in Dynamo.

    I am creating a graph that requires me to select walls. However it is also selecting curtain walls. I don't want it to. I only want to select 'Basic' wall types. In schedules, Revit see's the 'Basic Wall' & 'Curtain Wall' description as a system family name. I checked Element Types node though and I cannot find this anywhere in Dynamo. Am I missing it, or does it not exist and I have to get more creative?

    thanks in advance for any assistance.

    You can filter by a parameter that only curtain walls have.

    Thanks John I will take a look, I have already done something similar using the wall names, but I was hoping to keep it cleaner and see if Dynamo could access those 2 system family descriptions.

    Just wanted to give this a nudge and see if anyone was aware of any new nodes or updates to tackle this?? I recently came across another situation where this would be really helpful.
    Thanks in advance for any new tips.

    Here's one way to do it. Bear in mind that this only differentiates between Basic Walls and Curtain Walls.

    You can use nodes for this if you like, I simply used DesignScript The names are the same.
