    Ceiling Height filters

    Thought I'd share.
    A post on Phillip Chan's blog reminded me of this graph I've written recently to create Filters based on every Ceiling Height in a project.
    It's relatively customized to our office standards, but shouldn't be too hard to modify.
    The graph find all Ceiling Heights in a project and creates a Filter for each height, named RCP-height
    Then it applies all of those Filters to a View Template named Coordination - RCP Ceiling Heights using our company standard color palette

    It's still got a few rough edges - I'm using the SpringNodes Feet2Fraction and that occasionally converts 8'-8" to 8'-7 2/2"
    I also kind of hard-wired the node that creates the Filter to do only Ceiling Heights - that need to be more generic.

    Feel free to use, modify improve and/or criticize.

    Ive used filters for ceiling height before, but abandoned it because you first need to know what they are before making all the filters and it doesnt update with changes. Doing it programatically solves that issue I guess.

    This solution is also very intersting;

    Using the Analysis Display could be a good option because you can potential project it over any view without changes to the filter and template.

    If you can get it to work, my efforts failed, and I resorted to populating "Unbounded Height" into a new SP which we can now use Colour Schemes on.

    Here's a new version.
    A few bugs fixed, the whole routine is now more generic and thus (hopefully) more adaptable to other parameters.
    I also wrote my own "FeetInchesFraction" node to replace the SpringNodes Feet2Fraction, which had a tendency to return 8" as 7 2/2"
    (and thanks to Gordon for now allowing .dyf files to be uploaded)
