Find the Families in your Revit Project that have Embedded DWG mesh files. Use Dynamo BIM

Have you ever wondered if the families in your Revit project contain meshes? Families that contain meshes, most of the time, mean that they have one or more imported DWG files embedded in them.

Well, if you are slightly curious then simply open your Revit Project and place the nodes shown in the image below.
The sample shown was tested on some furniture families in a Revit Project and as shown the dining tables were made of meshes! Busted! 
Please note that some families such as topo and rpc’s always have meshes in them. Also note that the method above will not find meshes that are “not visible” in a family. 
Happy mesh hunting!
