In our example 27, the task at hand, we want to generate checklists (the checklists are sheets) based on existing sheets. That means, for every drawing created in the project, a corresponding checklist is needed. A quite tedious job if you have 100 drawings on the project. But do not despair, Dynamo is here to save the day!
The last wall, a curved wall with varying height, Dynamo will be applied to generate the U-shaped rebars both top and bot. For the bot rebars, Dynamo player will be used.
Will continue to build on the retaining wall, made in example 6,7 and 8. Here drains will be added, a total of 29. Many of the techniques used are been done in previous examples. The pickle here will be to rotate the 29 drains in XY-plane and 2 rotations around the Z-axis, and every 29 drains will have individual rotation values.
A problem that might occur when working with a lot of columns is the creation of a schedule with x,y,z coordinates, Revit doesn’t seem to have a good solution here. In this post, we will solve it. We do that by finding X, Y, Z coordinates with dynamo, and then transfer it back into every single column placed.
Sometimes it’s very nice to be able to see the different kinds of rebars based on their partition, and not just rebar size when checking the model for errors. Here we will do just that!
Stirrups will be generated along a selected path with fixed spacing and increased stirrup length at each stirrup along the path with the increasing length of the concrete cross-section.
In this example, we will calculate the area and length for an object.
In this example, we will generate straight rebars (code 0) in a foundation slab.
In this example, we will generate L-shaped rebars (code 11) in a foundation slab.
In this example, we will generate 2 different U-shaped rebars (code 21 and 25) in a curved and sloped wall.
In this example, we want to place a family with a specific rotation in the XY-plane, along a selected surface, with a fixed distance between the families. In this case, the families will be a post, but the method will be applicable to all families.
Revit dynamo - model a curved insulation- example 8
In this example, we build on example 6 and 7, by modeling a insulation for the foundation.
The script and principle is very much the same as in example 6 and 7, only a few changes have been made to make the geometry like a foundation.
In this example, we build on example 6, by modeling a foundation for the retaining wall.
The script and principle is very much the same as in example 6, only a few changes have been made to make the geometry like a foundation.
In this example we are taking the rough geometry we got from the SAT file in the last example to create a retaining wall. Normally this is an easy task, but the wall has varying XYZ-coordinates, which makes the task more difficult since the geometry won’t behave as intended, dynamo is the solution!
In this example, we have received an SAT-file from architects that contain a rough geometry of a retaining wall with a location in XYZ coordinates. We want to import the geometry into our Revit file in the right location.
In this example, we create a “digpit” based on existing construction and topography with input values, that determine the “digpit” slope and depth.
In this example, we are selecting the face of the wall to create a void, the void created will cut all the protruding walls. The face you select can I practice be all types of surfaces so all kinds of voids can be made.
Create a void based on a topography. The void topography can cut anything, like the wall shown in the video.
Here we create a topography in Revit based on XYZ coordinates from excel.
