WIP - How to keep linked schematic diagrams with 3D model

This is something I'm thinking since long time and finally I've some work in progress.
The idea came from a very useful plugin I've in my army: Parameter linker from RF Tool (http://www.rushforthprojects.com/)

Now with the power of Data-Shapes nodes, some Python and Dynamo player, is very easy to create user interfaces with inputs so, I prepared this small video with my WIP.

As always when ready, I'll share scripts and tutorials!

  1. Connecting schematic diagrams with model is a challenge for several disciplines.
    Good work, Cesare!

  4. Alfazal Engineering gives you the following tips are supposed to be a realistic manual to make certain the secure and right set up of cable ladder and cable tray structures and channel aid and different aid structures. These suggestions aren't supposed to cowl all info or versions in cable ladder and cable tray set up and do now no longer offer for each setup contingency. It is usually recommended that the paintings defined on this manual are executed with the aid of using in a position individuals who're acquainted with the goods being set up and the protection requirements related to them. Structural characteristics When thinking about the set up of the cable helps machine its miles vital to keep away from the slicing or drilling of structural constructing participants without the approval of the venture chief on-site.

Dynamo, Revit, Excel, UI...what a wonderful day!

Introduction Today I'll show you two examples of how to use Dynamo to export existing Revit schedules and how to compose a custom schedule on the fly, to be exported to Excel.
Both of them with a very nice graphical user interface thanks to Data-Shapes (https://data-shapes.net/) package.
Export Schedules Let's start from the easier. The idea behind this script is to export a list of existing schedules to an Excel file, creating for each schedule a separate tab. To be able to complete this script you'll need two packages: Data-Shapes for the graphical interfacesBimorphNodes to extract schedules data The script is very easy and you have to focus only on how to create an interface Then you can use your input to feed the next nodes. Finished! So just push the run button (or use Dynamo Player is you are in Revit 2017.1 or 2017.2) and enjoy the interface.

Export parameters to Excel In the second script I'll focus on something more interesting. Many times we need to just extr…

Tunnel modeling with Dynamo

Introduction Last week I had a nice conversation with one of my Italian friends. The focus of the conversation was how to model a tunnel in Revit starting from an Excel list of points coming out from Civil 3D.
So the answer was: Dynamo of course!

First input, the section of the tunnel with his diameter; I can't share the details but lets say that we have:

Theoretical excavation profile: 200 mm Precast segment thickness: 500 mm Whit this two elements and the excel of the theoretical cent alignment, we can do everything! Revit profile family The first family we're going to create is a simple circle profile with a diameter parameter. This family will be as a mass category to be able to nest it later in an adaptive component family for the tunnel.  Just save this family...easy!
Tunnel model Now we can create a new family as generic adaptive component and load the profile just created. It's important that the family is able to host rebars for future structural modeling. Whit th…

Multi-pipe support configurator with Dynamo

As always everything is coming from my childhood…ops no, that's another story.
As always everything starts on a white recycled paper just in front of my keyboard; a simple idea becomes immediately a sketch with Revit parameters.


I tried many times different kind of plugins for automatic supports placement, but no one of these is able to create a multi-pipes supports (if I'm wrong, please let me know the name of the plugin). The idea for this script in Dynamo, is to create a support for a bounce of pipes going parallel for a while, and create a group that is possible to copy along the path. I'll not focus on the creation of the families that you need for the support but just to explain the main idea, I have 3 different pieces (steel bar, u-bolt and threaded rod) that I'll compose together to create the final support. The first challenge is to align the pipes to the same BOP (bottom of pipe) because they have to stand on the steel bar and locked with the u-bolt.  The bas…
