Renumber Viewports with Dynamo

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

Make Hardscape Follow Topo Update

A little less than a year ago, I posted about how you can Make Hardscape Follow Topo with a very simple Dynamo definition. The main downside to this workflow is that it requires a corresponding Subregion with the same footprint as the Floor. Because it uses a Subregion to generate points, you also cannot control the amount of points that go into the Floor. But with a slightly more complicated definition, you can create the same result without a Subregion and even control how many points will modify the Floor.

Get Floor Boundaries with Spring Nodes

Finding the boundary lines of an element is something that I have been trying to do in Dynamo for a little while now. There are several different tasks that you can automate in Revit once you have the boundaries of an element. First, you can automatically draw Area Boundary Lines for your planting plans. And particularly for Floors, you can use boundary lines to create duplicate Floors.

So I was quite pleased to discover Collector.ElementSketch in Spring Nodes. Continue reading
