I have been trying to setup an automated batch script, but my script fails at the very beginning when trying to open the model file.
I have tried using the bare example from the docs below:
from pyrevit import HOST_APP
# __models__ is set to a list of model file paths # __models__ = ['C:\model1.rvt'] for model in __models__: uidoc = HOST_APP.uiapp.OpenAndActivateDocument(model) doc = uidoc.Document # do something here with the document
but the last line fails as uidoc is always None
I’ve also tried using the DB Application.OpenDocumentFile(…) method to get a doc without a uidoc, but then I get an Exception that the “Document can not be opened”.
I can see Revit opening the file (if I run an higher version I even see the update dialog), and the UI flashes when the model is loaded, but I can never get a valid UIDocument or Document.
I have a feeling I am doing something wrong, but can’t figure out what…
