I have found an existing simple solution for this (for Revit 2017+). See my code repository:

Congrats! We think this is a great idea, so we've decided to add it to our roadmap. Thanks for the suggestion!

@matthew_taylor ,

 

Thank you for the reference. As this is specifically API related and already accepted, I am going to keep this Idea separate.

@matthew_taylor does your code work with specific categories? For example I want to just purge unused doors.

@tom.flaherty No. You would need to post-process the element IDs to check their category.
Note that in Revit 2024 there are two new functions for getting unused elements:

  • GetUnusedElements
  • GetAllUnusedElements
