I want to classify walls and windows by orientation respectively, and then get the total area of walls, total area of windows, of different orientations (e.g. total area of south facing walls). Are there some node packages to achieve this goal by Dynamo?
Try searching the forums. There have been at least a couple posts that have dealt with this exact issue.
Thanks for your reply,
But, I didn’t find what I need. I want to group the walls (window) by orientation firstly, and then get the total area of each group. Do you have some more ideas?
Maybe these can get you started.
Hi guys, I got stuck solving following problem. I want to use Dynamo to extract wall orientation from the wall that already change orientation (by clicking the arrow sign in the middle of the wall). In my case Dynamo still get the same result. Are there any way to solve this not by replace the wall? Big thank for any help in advance.
Window to wall area ratio (WWR) is an important metric for all architectural projects that put an emphasis on sustainability. Deriving this information from a Revit model using native tools like schedules is surprisingly difficult. The following blog post outlines our firm’s attempt at garnering this information from our projects using Dynamo and Excel. We are happy to share it with anyone interested in testing this tool.

Yes, you are feeding in doors instead of walls.
Thank you very much,
According to your suggestion, I use the custom node of Wall.NorthSouthEastWest (from old version of Rhythm) to solve the problem. It works now in the Dynamo (Version 1.2.2). The nodes are:
But, the node of Wall.NorthSouthEastWest cannot work in the Dynamo (Version 2.0.0). I’m confused with this problem. Could you tell me the reason? Its nodes are:
I’m afraid I don’t have 2.0 installed yet. Can you show your graph with the node previews turned on? Are you getting an error? Have you confirmed everything works with 1.2?
Everything work well with version 1.2.
In 2.0, there is no error, but Wall.NorthSouthEastWest (Rhythm version 2017.5.30) return Null. Here is the graph:
The best way for yourself to try and find the cull-pit is to copy out the content of the custom node (“Wall.NorthSouthEastWest”) and work with the entire workflow so you can see where the issue lies.
It’s a good suggestions, and I find the problem and solve it, as the following diagram shown.
from where can I get the custom Wall.NorthSouthEastWest ? or how do I create it ?
Walls.NorthSouthEastWest.dyf (37.4 KB)
this is the old custom node from Rhythm package
and change the node as ezxhg2 did if you are using Dynamo 2.0 or newer
Thank you so much!
I still have so much to learn… I trying to figure it out how to add all my walls from revit and get it through this node.
If someone could jump in and help out I would appreciate it a lot.
Thanks in advance
