Filter coinciding geometry


#1

Hello.

I have recently began to use Dynamo and I think it’s great. I am working on a specific task and right now I can use a little help.

I have a list of revit part elements. Some of them are almost duplicates - their geometry coincides almost on 100%, their are only some minor differences that make them unique. I want to filter out from that list all the elements with intersecting geometry that have more than 98% coincidence with other elements from that list. How can I do that?

I want to reformulate my question:

Is it possible to identify all members within a list that are approximately equal to other members of the same list?


#3

One way to begin would be to first outline the parameters that would help determine their similarity

Volume?, Area?, Length?, Height?, Volume and Area?, Volume, Area and Height? …

 


#4

I think the parameters should be volume and bounding box points.

Bounding box (as it works today) may not be a good idea as the bounding box of the same geometry with different orientations will be different.

A simple example …
