Since I have been doing a lot more documentation work in Revit these days, I have become significantly more interested in how Dynamo can automate certain documentation tasks. One task that can always drive me crazy (especially in Revit) is renumbering viewports on sheets.
There are several different ways you can renumber viewports. I decided to use a simple ‘pick’ method so I wouldn’t have to do any reordering in Dynamo. This method works well with Continue reading

I recently had a reader reach out and ask if is is possible to place Spot Slopes on every face of a Floor with Dynamo. Though there are no nodes (both ootb or custom) that I know of that will place a Spot Slope, you can still achieve a similar result by calculating slopes and putting those slopes into Generic Annotations.
This method can be used to place any number of symbols, annotations, or even detail components in a specific view.
After doing some Floor editing recently in Revit, I realized that my Match Adjacent Points workflow does not have the ability to add adjacent points. So I decided to test out a new method that could add points from an adjacent Floor that were along a shared edge. Somewhat surprisingly, this method can also be used to match adjacent points without replacing them.
And this workflow can be used twice on two Floors to match points from each.
