Marcello/John, great job as usual. I think that a class in zero touch would be really helpful. I'd really like to know why you'd choose that over python or design script. Seems like there's multiple ways to skin a cat with extending dynamo and I haven't really seen anything that pinpoints the pro's and con's of each. Thanks again guys.

Great set of tutorials, Danny. Could you possilbly do a tutorial where you create revit objects, multiple floors for instance, from multiple sets of lines? Im struggleing to understand what the methods for creating objects expect as input when it takes a CurveArray, like this: And more specifically, I'd love to see how you do this, if you have two sets of CurveArrays (from two rooms for instance :-)), so that iteration is needed. Thanks in advance, and keep up the good work :o)

Hi Danny. For some reason I am not getting parameters in the outlist. I've changed the input parameter to return the 'mark' for a door. It seems no matter which parameter I choose no parameters output, only the familytype. Any thoughts as to why?
