Automate export to MAJ
« on: Aug 16, 2022, 18:41:41 PM »
I'm looking to add a little automation to our MAJ export process.
Has anybody done this yet?

I tried to use DynaFabrication 2017 Export fabrication Job but that doesn't seem to work.

Can you elaborate a little more? What software? What version? What process are you trying to achieve in the automation (if there is more then just an export)? Is there a file structure you are trying to place it in?

Sorry for the lack of information.

Revit 2020, the is a function Export Autodesk Fabrication Job File.
I want to automate the process of saving out these .MAJ files using Dynamo.

I can't find any nodes/packages that handle .MAJ file creation beyond the DynaFabrications which don't seem to work in newer revit.

I see something in the API but my coding skills do not go beyond dynamo.

We would need to use Python or the .NET API directly to get at that method. Depending on what you mean by automate, Virtual Mechanical does this. We can optionally select the Fabrication Status to be exported, and also optionally change the Fabrication Status of the selected parts upon export. Color by Fabrication Status, use advanced Fabrication Data driven Filters ect.

Thanks for the input, I've download VM but haven't used it much.

I have an assembly per apartment unit uniquely named, the idea would be to export an MAJ per assembly for the entire level at once.
