An electrical revit user in my office came to me looking how to duplicate dependent views from the architects Revit model into his. The project is a 21 story apartment building with 50 typical layouts. The architect has cropped each view such that you only see the aparment layout and nothing else (The view is tight to the exterior walls of the apt). The only way I see to copy these views over is to make the same views in the electrical file then copypaste inside “edit crop sketch mode” from the arch file to the elec file. I think painful is the term for this.
So my user uncovered a neat solution using Dynamo (below). After 2 days of playing with Dynamo, I’m nowhere closer. Does anyone know where I can find the patch to open in Dynamo so it works.
Here is the Dynamo Canvas:
I attempted to build the canvas from scratch but the directions were unclear to operate the function of dynamo inside revit. I was also confused with the first codeblock “14”; What was it hunting for? Should this be something else?
For a first time user, I think I’ve done allright. I’m not certain I want to become a power user, however if I could benefit from the patches I would. Not sure whats happening with that. Anyways thanks in advance.
