I am new to Dynamo, and I am trying to create what I think is a simple program for automatically placing Lighting Fixtures along Cable Trays.
So far my program creates curves along the cable trays and puts points along the curve on which the Lighting fixtures are placed. But that’s not enough.
I need to rotate the lighting fixtures so that they have the same rotation as the curves in all directions x,y and z.
I would like to join curves that are split by for example a tee connection. One of the problems (atleast for me) here is that Tee connections etc. only have a point in the geometry, not a line, as far as I can see. Also I do not know how to join two lines that have a small separation, ref. images:
How it looks in Revit
I would also like it for the Lighting Fixtures (which is a MagiCAD object) to get a Reference Level when placed. I have not looked very much at this yet, but I’ve found that when I place these objects with dynamo, the Reference Level parameter actually doesn’t seem to exist in the object.
