This is the second post in a series of 3 about linking Revit to Excel with Dynamo. Click here to download the entire series in PDF format, along with 2 dynamo scripts. In this post, you will learn how to create a Dynamo script that pushes information from Excel to Revit. In this scenario, we imagine that a project manager updates a spreadsheet with room information. The BIM manager needs to push this data to Revit. In addition, we have more requirements: The script should work with any project. The data might not always be in the same order. That means the Name column might sometimes be ..read more

Our last guide about Automating Wall Openings Percentage in Revit caused a lot of reactions and great questions! The original idea was a proof of concept, with the solution to be adapted to specific cases. We’ve included the modified script in the MANAGE package, which you can download here. GET THE PACKAGE! Watch the video: DEALING WITH COMPLEX FIRE COMPARTMENTS Buildings are complex. They can have multiple compartments for the same walls. Sometimes, the calculated area shouldn’t include a ventilated roof. Jeff had an interesting comment about it: You could come up with some Dynamo gymnasti ..read more

10 Steps to Automate Wall Openings Percentage in Revit with Dynamo
Revit Pure » Dynamo

Code requirements often ask architects to calculate the percentage of non-protected openings for each façade. The maximum percentage is typically based on the distance from the property line. I have seen multiple architects and designers “manually” calculate this value by drafting filled regions on the top of the elevation. We’ve developed a workflow that automates all of this work. It involves a Dynamo script, a generic annotation family, a few shared parameters, and a schedule. Here is a gif that previews this workflow: You can see that the user adds windows on the south elevation. The Dyn ..read more

Manually numbering elements such as doors is boring. By using Dynamo, you can automate the process. In this example, we have doors with random mark values unrelated to the rooms. After running the Dynamo script, the doors automatically acquire the “To Room” value and add a unique letter suffix. Before going through all the steps, check out Pamphlet #29. This free PDF guide contains everything in this post, plus extra information about the Dynamo player and renumbering furniture based on rooms and levels.

Model Groups are crucial to model multi-family housing projects in Revit. Recently, we’ve released a guide containing good practices with Groups. The problem with groups is that you cannot schedule elements that are part of a specific group. By using the power of Dynamo, you can easily add unique parameters to group parameters, allowing you to easily schedule, sort, and filter everything from a specific unit type. Do you want to download all Dynamo Scripts included in this post? Do you want a PDF version of this guide, with extra content about automating groups? Use the link below: Watch the ..read more

This post is an excerpt from our new MANAGE learning package for Revit. You can download this entire post with extra free content by using this link: Dynamo is a visual programming platform for Revit. Typically, programming is done with text. Visual programming replaces code with nodes and wires instead. In the end, you can achieve the same result by building a custom add-in than a Dynamo script. In the image below, the Visual and Textual programs both accomplish the same thing. In this chapter, we will focus on modifying parameters and information. Dynamo can be used to generate geometry ..read more

Revit + Dynamo Tutorial - Colored Revision Clouds
Revit Pure » Dynamo
by Nicolas Catellier
2y ago
Today, I’ve received an interesting question from Gerald Castillo, a Revit Pure reader: I really need some help regarding revision clouds. Is it possible to create revisions with a different color for each revision? What I mean is for example for Revision 1 = color red then Revision 2 = Color Blue? View filters would be a great tool for this task, but the “Revision Clouds” category isn’t available there. Which leaves us to use Dynamo. If you know nothing about Dynamo, have a look at our MANAGE learning package for Revit. It includes a long chapter about Dynamo. One of the Dynamo videos can be ..read more
