Create camera view from a family


#1

I got a suggestion today to see if Dynamo could create a 3D camera view from a placed family instance (in a project) of a security camera?

 

It would seem this is possible, but I am a little unsure how to start with something a little more complicated.

 

Suggestions would be most welcome.

It should be doable through the PerspectiveView.ByEyePointAndTarget node.

 

Here’s what I managed to get, I had to use the isolate element option then manually unhide everything else, because my view got really wacked out if I didn’t. (1st image is my security camera and toilet i’m looking towards, 2nd is graph, 3rd is reveal hidden, 4th is finished) There is of course room for improvement, I will investigate further.
