Possible for Document.ElementTypes Family Name Filter to contain Regex?

Specifically I was looking to gather all families with names starting with a specific set of characters without selecting only one specific family?

My Regex might be wrong, but thinking add a * after the specific characters and obtain all families with names that start with that ordering of characters. Then sorting and selection can occur after.

This component do not implement this kind of filtering, but I think it would be nice it does.
I add it to the list of thing to do.

Many thanks for your comment.


Hey @mrainville1.618
You can use the usual grasshopper pattern of filtering elements using Match Text and Cull Pattern components:


true, that is effective and functional, was merely thinking if it was possible it would be more elegant of a solution. granted using what exists has its own value instead of over complicating. thanks for the reminder @eirannejad my brain gets jumbled when switching between VPs
