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.
I have a slight update and correction to last week’s post, Match Adjacent Floor Points. A reader pointed out that the definition also reset all non-adjacent points to zero. So, I went back and modified the node and the definition so Continue reading
Continuing with last week’s theme of automating Slab Shape editing, another useful function that can be done in Dynamo is matching adjacent Floor points. So if you’ve taken the time to modify the points of one Floor, you can automatically match the adjacent (or overlapping) points of another Floor.
In Revit, Toposurfaces are Mesh elements. By definition, a mesh contains points, edges, and faces. Topos are always more manageable to edit when they have fewer points and edges, but all of those edges can also make them appear unrealistic.
There are a variety of methods you can use to smooth out those edges, but one of the quickest ways to do this is to convert the Topo into a Nurbs Surfaces (in Dynamo, of course).
