I’m working on a new dynamo workflow that places a void family in the floor where columns are passing through it. I have created a face-based void extrusion floor family that works perfectly when i manually click on a floor in revit but when i place it in a floor through dynamo it doesn’t actually form the void cut, instead it sits within the floor element as a solid. (I have enabled the cut when loaded tick box in the family)
Please see the attached .dyn file.
Automated Floor Void at Column Locations.dyn (21.2 KB)
My Face-base floor void family:
PEP_Rectangular_VoidJAnew.rfa (288 KB)
Also see picture below showing the void family placed at column intersection but not actually cutting the floor. I also noticed that the void family is being placed at the current work plane level rather than by the level i send to the placement node?
Any help on this would be greatly apprechiated. I will update this post if i make any progress.
I believe the family isn’t cutting the floor because its a face-based family and i’m inserting it at a point in space rather than on a face at a point? Not sure what node/nodes would be best to define my points by the face.
