    Scheduling Doors in LINKED model with Rooms in HOST model

    We have multiple house units that repeat and so we are linking in house types and using them repeatedly for the different houses.

    Now, the doors are in the linked house type models and we have made the rooms in the HOST model to give them individually identifiable room numbers.

    Our door schedules use the "to room" parameter and the "room number" to identify the location of the doors. Revit doesn't allow the doors and rooms to be connected across linked models.

    Has anyone come across a solution using dynamo ?

    Thank you in advance.

    Steam Nodes can pull the Rooms from a link files but you wont be able to write it to the From/To Room parameter. I stopped using those a long time ago as they are not reliable(they won't update after the schedule as been created)

    once you have the Rooms then you can use Intersect to find the geometrical intersection. Might get a little tricky with doors but it works

    Thanks Daniel. They say that just giving a direction to the hungry is enough, they'll go feed themselves. Hopefully your direction will be enough for me

    there is this one:
    What Revit Wants: Collect Elements in Rooms Across Linked Files, and Write Room Data Directly to Elements or List to Excel
    but it seems so complicated to work, even dynamo keeps crashing very often when i open it and try to get my head around it
