I’m wondering what the best practice workflow is for using Rhynamo to transfer a Rhino model into Revit. Assuming the Rhino model is pretty detailed - including massing, floors, mullions, etc., what is the best procedure for each element?:
- Floor - surfaces or polysurfaces. I don't see any node in Dynamo to extract the boundary of a surface so I assume it's best to do this in Rhino and then reference these polycurves into Floor.ByOutlineAndLevel? This obviously needs to be done in the project environment.
- Massing - I haven't been able to get the ReadRhino.Rhino_BrepsToDS to work on its own. I need to add the ImportInstance.ByGeometry to it for any Revit geometry to appear. Is this the only way? Is this best done in a family or the project environment? If it is placed in the project, there doesn't seem a way to use the imported geometry to generate any other geometry, such as wall by face, etc. But if I try to use ImportInstance.ByGeometry in a conceptual mass family, it fails?
- walls - surface. Is there a way to generate walls from surfaces? The surfaces have an 'edited profile' so its not possible to extract the wall location line and define the height. the ideal solution would be to take the (planar) surface and generate a wall by face. Not sure how single or double curved surfaces work in this regard
