For anyone wanting to create custom fill patterns in Revit, the following link provides a very easy way, by drawing them in AutoCAD and saving as a .pat file. Custom Revit Hatch Patterns – The EASY way!
Dynamo can be used to Set the Cross-Section Rotation parameter for multiple beams. In this example, I am creating purlins using ‘Beam System’ in Revit, then using Dynamo to set the Cross-Section Rotation for all the Purlins in the Beam System so that they follow the curve profile. Here’s the workflow: 1. Create a […]
– Here’s a little workflow for creating ‘wavy’ framing on a surface: 1. Link a Surface into a Revit Mass: –> 2. Create a Roof by Face – Select the Surface, Create Roof: –> 3. In Dynamo, intersect the Grids with the Face to get the curves and create the framing. […]
“A good draughty is a lazy draughty.” Not totally convinced by that, but the theme for most of these tools does lean towards ‘bulk-doing’; the sort of ‘character-building’ work the office junior used to take care of. Blog posts / screengrabs to come, but here are a handful of scripts produced so far: Override Colour […]
The purpose of this tool is to export DWGs and PDFs of any Sheet where the revision matches today’s date, then place these in an auto generated new Folder which is dated and named in a standard format. Essentially, an ‘ETransmit’ for Revit Sheets.
Using Dynamo Player and Multiple Input Forms to allow user input outside of Dynamo means you can create what is effectively a Revit Add-In for others to use, without knowing how to write code, and without others knowing how to use Dynamo.
Dynamo bridges the gap between Revit and Excel (third party Revit Add-Ins aside). Whilst it can be used to manage any number of parameters, here is a quick look at how Excel can be linked to Sheets in Revit, via Dynamo.
