Ok so this has been our second week using Dynamo and it has been okay thus far.
The general process up until this point has basically been that we import arc information from grasshopper to dynamo via Mantis Shrimp. Turn that to arcs by 3 points node. Process that into a curve which is then fed into wall by curve and levels node. All up until this point is fine. The walls are created in Revit.
Now the issue that i’m sure someone must have solved already, is that if we update the grasshopper information and the curves which the walls by curve and level are referencing to are revised, one of two things happen. 1) when i toggle the “read GH file” import option on and off, the walls delete from the Revit file. Or 2) the walls of the previous curves remain and completely new walls are placed in revit. Ideally what would happen is that the old walls will simply adjust to the new curves.
This is key because we will maybe be 2 or 3 weeks down the road, have to adjust the curve geometry but at this point we would have tons of doors and windows placed into these walls. Thus when dynamo remakes them, we will loose all the elements placed in the walls as well.
I have a feeling that I need to do something with the wall element ID’s but I am truly lost on this matter and would greatly appreciate some help.
