    Bulk Upgrade Families

    Hi fellow Reviteers:
    I've created a simple dynamo script for batch upgrading your families.....
    you will need the Rythym and clockwork packages.

    Note that this DOES NOT create a copy of your files, so you should have them copied into a new aptly named directory
    Be very careful and use at own risk.
    Comments welcome

    Nice job man! The only feedback I have is, in newer versions of Rhythm the open nodes have changed, so they will need replaced, unfortunately.

    Here are the replacement nodes names/locations.

        Yeah, both have stayed present for a bit. I am retiring the python versions on next release.

          Ok - updated version attached: Changes as follows:
          1. Newer Rhythm nodes used as suggested by John
          2. Ive added count nodes at the end, so you know how many families have been processed

            The rhythm package now has a node specifically for this.

                  Hi Alex

                  This is exactly the tool I am looking for. I'm a complete Dynamo newbie but a pretty competent Revit user.

                  I've downloaded the Dynamo script but there's errors around the "Application.OpenDocumentFile". Makes me summise that the Rhythm thingy fixes this issue. My problem is that I have no idea how to use the Rhythm input to write that script!

                  Tips and tricks welcome.
                  thanks
                  B

                    The most recent iteration of this is the single node under "Tools".
