Dynamo Group Replacement

Good afternoon,

I have been searching but cannot find the write topic for my problem. I have Masses i built in a model. My goal is to replace the mass withing revit with a group or assembly which is seperate file that matches the mass dimensions but is more detailed. How would i go about doing this?

I think you need to do these basic steps.

1.Select the model mass in Dynamo (Node = Select Model Element)
2.extract the element geometry (node = Element.Geometry)
3. Download Spring Nodes Package from Package Manager
4. Create a family instance by geometry using the geometry from the Element.Geometry node (Node = Springs.FamilyInstance.ByGeometry)

If this works you could try working with a list of masses collected with the Categories node and AllElementsOfCategory node.

Another method is to export the geometry to .sat files and then import that .sat into the conceptual mass modelling environment.

export to sat.dyn (11.8 KB)

Is that workflow going to prevent updating a Wall.ByFace?

Yep I don’t think it would work with wall by face because the masses are not proper.
