In one of my projects, I am trying to automatically detect junctions and the type of junctions between walls in Revit. To do so, I import the walls in Dynamo, extract their geometries, and I predict the type of junction based on the intersection I get. For now, it is working for all the simple cases.
However, one particular junction is bothering me :
As you can see, while on all the other cases the intersections are planar, I get in that case a non-planar intersection, and I want to extract the “non-planar” information through a Dynamo graph. I thought on using the Curve.IsPlanar node, which require a Curve object.
I tried to use the PolyCurve.ByJoinedCurves node (to join the lines that form the intersection), but it won’t work beacause the lines I get from the Geometry.Intersect node do not form a closed Polycurve (there is a spare line in the middle). Any idea on how to automatically make a closed curve from what I get from the Geometry.Intersect node ? The order of the lines from Geometry.Intersect is random…
I might as well be happy if one of you know a way of detecting such intersections whitout even using the Curve.IsPlanar node.
I cannot yet attach a file (I’m new to the forum), but to simply create the problematic case in Revit :
- Create two walls
- Create a third wall starting from their intersection point
To get the intersection on Dynamo :
- Once you have extracted the geometry of the walls, use the Geometry.intersect node (arguments = the two geometries you want to intersect).
