I apologize if this is restating what you’ve already said but you’re telling me I can’t theoretically open Revit through a Python created program in Dynamo, to then get the information needed back in the way of families and geometry to be located and understood by Robot for a structural analysis within the Dynamo realm? This is because there is a restriction from Dynamo (or any other program) from getting typical information out of Revit that hasn’t been exported unless that program is operated from within Revit?
If that’s the case, I guess I need to pitch the Robot/Dynamo relationship in this instance and return to structural analysis within Robot through it’s relationship to Revit. I could control Revit through inner-Revit Dynamo, then run the structural analysis by way of importing that information to Robot from Revit and then updating Revit based on the results in Robot. I wonder if the Dynamo will update as well once the Revit has been altered with new families per direction of Robot.
What I’m after is the ability to alter a massing on the fly and have it concurrently be analyzed structurally.
