Dynamo mass and revit wall by face


First I made mass from dynamo

Second I want to modify dynamo mass into wall by using wall by face

What should I do?


There is no Wall By Face option
See if you can instead select/specify the base curve of the wall and use Wall.ByCurveAndHeight or Wall.ByCurveAndLevels



There is a custom node from “Clockwork Package” called “Wall.ByFace”. You can use that node to create wall by face.


I stand corrected, apparently there is a node, just not OOTB :slight_smile:


Would you make sample script using Wall.ByFace. Please :slight_smile:


Sure give me your mass.


It is just a simple mass now

but later, I’m going to make more complicated mass as long as it is possible to modify into wall in dynamo



Hello everyone, I tried to create my WallByFace and it works, but I can’t understand why I can change the wall type only 1 time. For example, I set to “Generic150” and I see in my Revit document the wright changes, but if I return in Dynamo and re-change to “Generic 300” it doesen’t work, the node give me “Empty List” and the transformed surface remains a “Generic150”, both in automatic and manual run mode. Thanks


Hi @Riccardo_Marchi,

Can you show us screenshot of your work so far. It would be better if you can start a new topic and link this post as a reference link. Thanks :slight_smile:

How to create walls off of dynamo surfaces

I simply change Wall Type in the dropdown of the upper grup and you can see WallByFace node give me Empty List


WALL BY FACE not working in complex geometries … ???
what I have to do to in this case?


Can you Upload the mass so we can examine it in detail?


Mass Group and IFC file


Hi this is the behaviour I’ve noticed when the surface is cut. The wall is created following the original uncut surface.
So far I haven’t found a direct solution.
Workarounds I’ve used are rebuilding the surface without cuts and cutting the wall once created with a void family. Or using an in-place wall.
I hope this will be resolved in future versions of revit.


hey guys im new here for dynamo if i have created a mass in fusion and then imported it revit by dynamo im facing some problems when i try to create wall by mass. what should be done in this situation
