Create a Generic Mass from Dimensions


#1

Hi There,
First time poster long time reader.
Im trying to do something reasonably simple with the aim to build on complexity as my skills progress.
The goal is to create a generic (rectangular/box) mass from Length, Width & Height dimensions in Excel and place it at specific coordinates.
I need help with creating the rectangular component in revit.
So far I can create a cuboid but am stuck getting that into revit.
Is there a node that creates a rectangular component from a cuboid?

Thanks for the help in advance and be gentle.

Hi @CHazelton

Welcome to Dynamo Forum!

At First you need to read parameter values from excel -> use “Cuboid.ByLengths” node to create cuboid in Dynamo -> use “FamilyType,ByGeometry” node to create Family type in Revit and finally -> use “FamilyInstanceByType” node to place family in revit with specific coordinates. Here is process in action:
