A question I was asked earlier today about making floors in Revit from a Rhino file deserves a very public answer.
The first step to make floors with outlines is to get the outlines. Note that it doesn’t matter where these curves come from. In the example I’m showing below, I read the curves from a Rhino file with the Dynamo plugin Rhynamo by CASE, inc. But the curves can come from any of:
- native Dynamo curves (derived from solid, made from points, etc.)
- model curves in Revit
- imported CAD drawing in Revit
- read from coordinates in an Excel file
- any other way to get a curve into Dynamo...
Here’s the quick and dirty way to make floors in Revit from a Rhino file. (Make sure to install the Rhynamo package from the Package Manager before proceeding.)
And here’s how you can read the curves from the Rhino file, make floors,… AND place them on their appropriate level. Make sure to download the package List.SortByKeyList or use one of the more general version called List.SortListOfLists in the Clockwork package by Andreas Dieckman.
