Adding a chamfer to a sloped wall


#1

Greetings all!

 

I am attempting to use Dynamo to help me create a chamfer along a wall that has it’s profile altered. Ordinarily I would use a wall reveal to create the chamfer, but since the profile has been changed, the reveal will not work. I thought I could create a graph that would take the wall, convert it to a solid, and then use the solid chamfer node to create my desired chamfer along the sloped profile. The part where I get stuck is the input for edge(s). I am not sure what to give it there. I tried extracting the edge I am wanting to chamfer, but it says it is the wrong input. I have attached a screenshot of my graph and (hopefully) my .dyn file. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, or if what I am attempting to do is not possible and heads up would be good too. thanks for reading. I look forward to your replies.

Okay Update!

I was finally able to create the chamfer in Dynamo, but it did not get reflected in the wall family in Revit. I think I may have had a misconception about what can be created in Dynamo and what translates back into Revit. Here is the graph I ended up with, which does give me what I was after, but since I have to import into Revit as a separate object, and I can’t join it with surrounding objects, or change the material, I may have been wasting my time. Any and all suggestions are welcome. Is there another way I could have gone?

Thanks for Reading.
