Explore CORE Studio’s latest contribution to DynamoRevit. We added a lot of new nodes which are partly already released with Dynamo 1.2 and will fully be available with the next Dynamo release. There are a lot of new nodes for creating and manipulating annotations, accessing element properties, manipulating existing locations and entirely new features like creating family types from dynamo geometries or creating global parameters. We added a list containing all new nodes below:

Annotations

  • Draw and query detail curves by dynamo curves
  • Create dimensions by elements or manipulate dimension properties
  • Make filled regions by outline and access filled region types
  • Place revision clouds by outline curves like polygons
  • Tag any element in Revit directly through Dynamo
  • Place text notes in views, access their properties and text note types

Tag Walls and place Dimensions in Dynamo

Material

  • Access Material properties like Name, Shininess, Smoothness, Transparency, SurfacePatternColor, MaterialClass, MaterialCategory, CutPatternColor, Color, CutPatternId, AppearanceParameters, ThermalParameters, StructuralParameters

Selection

  • Select multiple edges from elements

Elements

  • Create rooms by location point
  • Get room boundaries as curves
  • Create reference planes by points
  • Get location point or curve and manipulate them with the set location node
  • Move elements by vector
  • Access element materials
  • Create new revisions using dynamo
  • Create wall by face
  • Access Revit’s shape editor for roofs and floors
  • Create curtain systems by face

Families

  • Access properties like host element of family and type
  • Create new family types by dynamo geometry

Document

  • GetSurveyPoint and
  • GetBasePoint give you direct access to the document’s coordinates

Parameters

  • Access parameter properties like: HasValue, IsReadOnly, IsShared, Group, ParameterType, Id, UnitType, ParameterByName, SetValue, StorageType, SharedParameterFile,
  • Create shared or project parameters
  • Create global parameters (from Revit 2017)
  • Access global parameter properties

Filter

  • Create Parameter Filters by filter rules
  • Create Filter Rules by Rule Types
  • Create new Override graphic settings

Performance Adviser

  • Run Revit’s performance adviser directly in dynamo and explore failure messages

UI Nodes

  • And several UI nodes to access elements like: Phase, Revision, FilledRegionType, RevisionNumbering, RevisionNumberType, ParameterType, BuiltInParameterGroup, RevisionVisibility, DirectShapeRoomBoundingOption, FilterType, HorizontalAlignment, VerticalAlignment, RuleType

  1. Dynamo | Pearltrees

    […] I wrote a post a few weeks ago that featured the then four Dynamo User Groups that I knew of. Now suddenly there are a lot more, and there is probably one near you. If you have had trouble keeping track of what is going on where, you are not alone. In this post, I mean to collect a lot of information about these communities of practice around the globe, both those forming and those formed, that are focused on Dynamo and computational design. This stuff is hot! As I said before, I marvel at how differently each group was formed, how each has developed its own character, and how fast the global community is growing. So here’s what’s up. The Groups (so far…) New DynamoRevit Nodes | CORE studio. […]
