I was hope someone could help me regarding an issue I’m having with a 2 point adaptive component being place in a project via dynamo referencing an excel coordinate points.
Being a relative beginner at Dynamo – I have been able to get it all to work however my main issue now is the fact the file size is crazy large (close to 1gb)
Rail project: sleeper/slabs placed 700mm apart along the rail alignment
Adaptive component family: 950kb
Adaptive component points: 2
Number of placement in project: 4000
When I originally tested the adaptive family in a project file and did a basic array x 4000, my file size is about 5mb. However when I place them via dynamo the file size is close to 1gb. So I think there something with my dynamo script I’m missing which has me stumped.
My dynamo script is straight forward - reading the excel file – extracting the points I need (I was given the top and bottom points every 1m (4points) of the actual rail track profiles. I only needed the bottom points) plotting points and creating a polycurve between the points. Then dividing the polycurve by 700mm to get my spacing between sleepers/slabs, not ideal (dividing) as the sleeper/slabs go out of square due to the length of each of the arcs… another issue I need to work out!!
Hopefully is something really simple so any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated
