I have run a quick search over the forum but I haven’t found anything that could help me.
I’m looking for a Dynamo script able to convert Sketchup faces into Revit elements (walls, roofs, windows). Basically what the Helix add-on does, but with more options and without external extensions.
Do you know if it already exists or how to make one?
So bits of the functionality exist, but I’m not sure about the whole process?
For example, to map your Revit families to Sketchup families, you can easily enough have a graph to compare the directory of skp components to Revit families…
But I think you’ll have to find a way of importing the sketchup so that you can interrogate it and get the location and rotation of the Components? Perhaps this functionality is somewhere, but I don’t know of it.
Then you can place them all using Dynamo. I have done this kind of thing to optimise a 3D printing graph.
You can get lines from a dwg and generate a Revit walls from them… However given the ‘sketchy’ nature of most sketchup (and CAD) models, this workflow has never appealed to me. I take the opportunity to redraft in Revit correctly.
Here’s a thread…
Personally for $100 a year, I’d probably use theirs and discuss whether they can add the extra functionality you’re after
