Just a WIP incase anyone has a free Sunday and fancies a play with it! Otherwise I’ll get back on it on Monday…
Following the amazing work here:
I want a graph which will create individual dimensions (so I can check them against brick dimensions) and automatically create the dimension location lines.
So far I’ve got here… It’s nearly there, but rather than create a dim per ‘reference’ it’s creating a dim per line… It’s also doing something weird with the view… The created dims are in Revit but not appearing until I change their type.
Any assistance appreciated!
