Good day everyone!
So i made a dynamo that lets you filtrate pipes by type of use like domestic hot water, and i get to export it to excel, so until now perfect.
Buuut now what i need to know is which of those pipes goes through the outside of the building, and which goes through the inside.
At the start i thought, well all those who are at the basement are going to be exterior. But then i quickly realized that in the first floor, the building is cut on 3, so I’ll need to count those pipes as exterior as well
What would you do? I am still trying to figure out how to make a filter that can work in any of the next three cases
1 - It will be probably a MEP model linked to a central model (it might have linked rooms, walls etc.)
2 - The model MIGHT NOT have walls/Rooms at all because the links are broken, and this is just a
3 - Full revit model with all on it (this would be weird though)
I know there might not be a good answer for the second, but maybe i could tell the BIM subcontractors how to work in advance to be able to sort this kind of data.
It would be great to hear suggestions or ideas, i was thinking on filter by rooms, something like if the pipe is inside a room --> interior, but that will not always work and i think there might be problems with the false ceiling room boundaries
