    Find and select the imported cad drawings in any given model?

    Hey all,
    I am trying to find and select the imported cad drawings in any given model. How do I get it to specify or navigate/highlight (make it easy to locate) to a selected imported dwg?

    see image 1 for what I did. See image 2 showing two CAD drawings 1 Linked and the other Imported.

    Revit 2016
    Dynamo 3.1

    Would I use that instead of the Element Types?

    OK this is what I came up with and it works! After I see the list of Imported documents, I can attach the Erase tool and run it again and BOOM they gone!

    Selectively erase?

    Will this allow me to SELECTIVELY erase certain cad imports?

    Use a Data-Shapes dialog box to have the user select the import instances to remove
