Save geometry after transaction or run multiple transactions

Hi,

Coming from Revit- Dynamo( Building Design) background, i am new to Bentley generative Components & exploring it currently. In revit dynamo, once we run a script & close dynamo , the geometry/process still is saved or present in model. we can run another script post that without worrying about the geometry or any element in revit being affected with respect to the task being automated .
when i try the same in generative components say create points from excel or place cell based on coordinates, only one transaction is available at a time , how can i save the placed geometry/cell or points? So that i can run another transaction or scripts do further automation later on as & when the team needs to modify anything.  i tried switching to modeling or aecosim from dropdown after i ran transaction , it did save geometry the next time i opened generative components, but it seems to crash most of the time. any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

  • Hi Sachin,

    Any GC changes made through nodes will be preserved as a new Transaction. Before closing out we should hit the save button to account for the latest change in form of a Transaction. 

    After each step, we can save the changes as a new Transaction in the transaction window.

    Or, you can turn on Auto-Transaction where each transaction will be saved automatically. 

    If you find too many changes under one single Transaction we can split it into multiple Transactions by using the following option.

    If you see too many transactions considering every little changes, we can make it cleaner and compact by using the following option. 

    I hope this information is helpful.

    but it seems to crash most of the time

    It is unusual, might be file specific. Which application version you using? You might share your file

    I hope you have a great time using GenerativeComponents. Feel free to contact us with any doubts or questions. 

    Thanks,
