I’m trying to model a celing structural frame only to sketch the model lines in the model;
The proplem is that i can’t manage the junction of the structural frame (see picture)
another problem is that i would isolate the points of each triangle to make a hangers above of this, but i tried to do by “end curve point” but i don’t know why i find other points in the lines.
To address the first issue, you will need to place structural connections (I just started looking at this feature):
There is also a Revit add-in for this:
For the second question,
Curve.StartPoint gives me the points I expect. Some more details on your workflow could be useful here. See also on this topic:
I’m trying to get the Start Point of a Structural Column to allow the placement of a Structural Connection.
The problem I’m having is in relation to the getting the correct Start Point regardless of Vertical or Slanted.
If I use the Element.Geometry–>Solid.Centroid it places the point in the middle of the geometry which is wrong.
If I use the StructuralFraming.Location this only works for my slanted columns.
If I use Face.Vertices–>Vertex.PointGeometry I don’t get accurate X,Y,Z coor…
but i I would only that my structural frame follows the model lines , and then i can manage the start/end distance. Is it possible? or maybe do I have to change element type?
Here are some search results:
I’ve been working on a roof and everything works out nicely except that when my framing is added the “Extents Handles” go past my work points. I can manually drag them back but I would like to just add this feature to my Dynamo and set them to origin or 0. Is this possible?
Springs.Beams.FixExtents from Spring Nodes seems to work for this…
if you’'re not using the steel material or scheduling it I found changing the material to concrete works well too (cheat the software). Your connections look fantastic and you get really great images and renderings.
