I have been testing endless options for turning a Rhino surface into a Revit native component which has some thickness and material proprieties. I have come to the conclusion that the Wall.byFace component should do the job. I have successfully used Rhynamo up to the point of importing a Rhino surface into Dynamo (RhinoTranslationToDS.Rhino_BrepsToDS) then bringing it as Revit geometry (ImportInstance.ByGeometry).
The big challenge is to use this surface as a Revit face, and feed it into the Wall.byFace component. For this purpose two main options have been tested and failed:
- Select Face from Revit geometry instance
