    Placing views on sheets

    This should be a straight forward process. Still, i'm getting a warning at the Sheet.ByNameNumberTitleBlovkandViews node. Can't quite figure out what's missing.

    Hello Andrew,

    That node in particular is relatively fickle. Most people are using a Python version that skips the need to place a view on a sheet to actually create them.

    Have a look at this link: https://forum.dynamobim.com/t/excel-...on-sheets/5307

    Good luck!

      Hi Sol,

      I tried to avoid Python scripts since I don't have any experience with Python Language, but this script is pretty straight forward and it worked. Thanks!!!

          Andrew,

          I just went through this myself. Check out these post that helped me get the job done.

          Create new sheet each time dynamo runs and place elements on sheet

          Move View Titles (this cannot be done)

          Placing views on a sheet

          I would note that to make all of this work easily you may need to move your title-block to 0,0. My firms was about 11/512" off from this point making it impossible to get things to line up. I ended up having dynamo draw a line starting from 0,0 to somewhere else (Only way I could figure out how to move the title block accurately). Sucks if you want to incorporate into existing projects but everything now lines up perfectly.

            An alternative way (without Dynamo or other programming) is to draw the lines in AutoCAD (where you can specific exact XYZ coordinates) then link the DWG onto the sheet using the Auto Origin to Origin option.
