More Workset.Create fun with DynamoBIM

It was asked if there is a way to get a link name and create a workset based on that name. Yes there is! (thanks to an extra node from Konrad K. Sobon “Archi-lab.net)

Revit- Create Worksets with Dynamo

This discussion was over at the DynamoBIM forums regarding workset creation.
http://dynamobim.com/forums/topic/creating-a-new-workset/
Andreas Dieckmann was kind enough to let us know that this has been possible since the Revit R2 release.

This prompted me to do some searching and I found this post from the building coder.

And then I came up with this little gem. :)

It will take both a list and a single name (as a string) and create those worksets for you in a workshared model.
See the video below for it in action and get it on the package manager now. (Another note, this will only work for Revit 2015 and R2 update and beyond)

Rhythm for Dynamo-Update

Today I added a couple of useful nodes to Rhythm on the package manager. Below I discuss the purpose of these nodes. My favorite one of the three is SetParameterByName(TypeOrInstance). This is a question that comes up pretty often at the forums and on twitter so I made a node that alleviates these issues.
