Read the fine print

Printing a sheet set from Revit can be tedious, especially when you want to have a specific naming convention or such…

Let’s look at this Dynamo:

Capture

Simply straightforward thanks to the Archi-lab_Grimshaw node:

Noname

And it gives us a directory full of PDFs – and we do not like the default naming at all…

Noname

So – time for the next Dynamo exercise – grab those files, rename them according to criteria we set, move them to a new location:

Capture

What we do here is basically simple – we first construct a filename based on a set of criteria – target folder, Sheet Number, Sheet Name:

Noname

Then we simply move the files providing the new names:

Noname

And the result:

Noname

That’s how we like it…

And life is good…
