Cut in revit not the same as in dynamo

I try to make this
image

These are 2 generic models with an void in it.
In revit 2 times cut and join and it works.

In Dynamo it does not cut. The family has an void to make the cut. it works by hand. But want to use dynamo.
(something to do in the pythoncode AddCutBetweenSolids??)
With Element(s) cut its cuts the element without a void.

from Autodesk.Revit.DB.SolidSolidCutUtils import AddCutBetweenSolids

doc = DocumentManager.Instance.CurrentDBDocument

if isinstance(IN[0],list):
	tobecut = [UnwrapElement(i) for i in IN[0]]
else:
	tobecut = [UnwrapElement(IN[0])]
cutting = UnwrapElement(IN[1])
count = []
count2 = []

TransactionManager.Instance.EnsureInTransaction(doc)

for t in tobecut:
	try:
		count.append(AddCutBetweenSolids(doc,t,cutting))
	except:
		pass

TransactionManager.Instance.TransactionTaskDone()

OUT = '%d elements coupés' % (len(count))

Looking forward to get some hints.

Hi,

I’ve successfully used this one…

You can dig around in the node and look at the code :slight_smile:

It looks like you might want an ‘AddInstanceVoidCut’’ instead?

Hope that helps,

Mark

Hi @Mark.Ackerley

Thank you, the AddinstanceVoidCut is already in the script.
