    Copying Parameters

    In the neverending quest to help automate some boring stuff, I'm hoping to make a dynamo script to do the following:
    - take the system parameter of "Area" of certain Detail Item Filled Regions (which exists, but cannot be scheduled)
    - copy the parameter into my own "Filled Region - Area" parameter

    The reason is that I'd like to automate the calculation of Exposing Building Face calculations - wherein you tabulate the area of a facade next to a property line, tabulate the area of the unprotected openings, and report the latter as a percentage of the former. It's easy enough to give the filled region a name or parameter so that my schedule is sorted according to building facade and area type (see attached image), but I currently have to copy the areas by hand. Imaginit has a "Parameter Copy" tool as part of one of their suites, but with Dynamo being integrated into Revit now I'm hoping to save the cost of getting such a tool for a 20+ person firm.

    Anyone have any tips on how I could do something like this with Dynamo?

    Hello Guitarchitect,

    This should be what you're after



    You don't actually have to filter the Filled Regions versus the Masking Regions as the project parameter will apply to both and there is no harm done. I just included this as a further example of filtration.

    Short answer: Yes.
    Long answer: How do you specifically want to achieve it?
