We are using our Revit model to test exterior finish schemes and while Design Options are feasible I think they are also a bit of nightmare since it’s the entire exterior that’s changing, including Walls, Roofs, Fascias, Railings, Model In-Place elements…all really annoying stuff to make duplicate types of just to change the material. We’d rather not save a copy of the model per scheme either because our drawings & design will still be developing during all of this and nobody wants to redo that work once we decide on a scheme.
So I’m hoping there’s a Dynamo solution to this i’m just not sure how if its possible and havent found anything on it
The idea would be to make Generic Material types pertaining to each section of the exterior, then use dynamo swap out specific Material Assets per material. For example, we’d name one material ‘Main House Siding Material’ then our script would swap in either ‘4" Wood Panels’ or ‘6" Shiplap’ Assets.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
