Color Scheme - Color Code - Rooms in 3D

Hi everyone,

I would like to know if someone could help me on this. I am quite new to Dynamo and I am trying to create volumes from areas in order to be able to see it in 3D view.
To do so I have followed a tutorial on Youtube where I am able to :
Find boundary line of areas > create a surface > create a volume > color override the volume

However I would like the colors of these volumes to match the colors of the Color Scheme of a specific area plan. I tried to extract the color of each area in Dynamo but it was unsuccessful.
Does anyone know if there is a way to do it ?

Thank you so much for your help and have a great day !

This is not currently accessible via the API at this time, but is on the roadmap.

I recommend using a standard and hard coding it once.


Hi, guys, is there any progress?

Was added in Revit 2022, but I am not sure I have seen it used yet.

Thanks for your reply.
I am using Revit 2021, maybe that’s an interesting function.By the way, I often use dynamo, can we use dynamo to set the color scheme with our template?( if we have a template we can set it for our project,don’t need to set the color one by one)Or Revit can allow us to import our color scheme template?

@SeanP has implementet this, if im not mistaken.

But as @jacob.small says, it was added to the R2022 API.

Think Genius Loci have some nodes for that…but only works in 2022


I wish I could say I have a solution for this, but I do not have it in 3D, only in typical plans using traditional color schemes. I’d follow @sovitek suggestion.

Here is a way to create it for 2D plans from Excel.


Ah alright. Apologies - my memory failed me :slight_smile:

No worries, I can hardly remember what i e done myself!


Hi @chang.yeEX3S6,

Here some examples and the nodes I created when Revit 2022 was released.
As said before, this is only possible in Revit 2022.


Yes thats it :wink:

Would it be possible to upload the dynamo file for this? this is really great!
