Good Job @Ewan_Opie :+1:


Teething issues…

@awilliams has informed me that the v0.1.0 download has illegal characters that the Package Manager doesn’t like.

A v0.1.1 version is available now, same content but without those characters. :+1:

(Installing v0.1.0 from a downloaded zip from to your package directory manually will still work though.)


Awesome stuff, I’m looking forward to using these! :grin:


Well i was gonna try and get some sleep but how can I with this cool new toy sitting in my laptop ready to play with? Looks great, I’m glad to see it out in the world!

Minor Update v 0.1.2
5 new nodes!!

:snowflake:_Get All Elements in Project
This node will extract a list of all elements within the current Revit project file or project files from a document path.

:snowflake:_Override Projection Line Color in Views
This node will override the Projection Line color of multiple Elements in their owner views.

:snowflake:_Select PointCloud Points in View
This node allows users to select a specific number of PointCloud Point by creating a selection region in the Active View.

:snowflake:_Set Sketchplane By View
This node allows users to set the Active Sketchplane to be the Active View Plane.

:snowflake:_Set Text Note Width
This node sets the width of a Text Note Element.

I have updated the package website to reflect these additions and added one example showing the creation of a wall using PointCloud point selection in Revit. :grinning:

Enjoy and let me know of any improvements to be made.:wink:

I am really happy to announce a new release of the Sastrugi package v 0.1.5 :grinning:
(Its been a long time coming, and will be the last for Dynamo 1.3)

I only now realise my v 0.1.4 release wasn’t posted here, check out the website for details:
Link for v 0.1.4

Included in this release is the first part of a collection of Pointcloud focused nodes.
This new section of the package allows interaction with graphics overrides, scan/region visibility, locations/transforms and point extraction. I have renamed my original node for selecting Pointcloud points, as well as including one that collects a sample number of points from the entire Pointcloud instance.

Also included is a node that uses basic Python RANSAC :sunglasses: (Wiki-description) to detect planes and point-sets within Pointclouds. (This one did my head in a bit! :thinking:) This can be used to extract features within a cloud for creating geometry, such as floors, walls, ducts, columns and beams.

Node list

:snowflake:_Pointcloud Get Scans and Regions
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Get Transform and Scale
:snowflake:_Pointcloud RANSAC Plane Detection
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Select Points in View
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Sample Pointcloud

:snowflake:_Pointcloud Get Graphics Override Settings
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Graphics Override Settings By Elevation
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Graphics Override Settings By Fixed Color
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Graphics Override Settings By Intensity
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Graphics Override Settings By Normals
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Graphics Override Settings No-Override
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Graphics Override Settings Visibilty Hide
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Graphics Override Settings Visibility Show
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Reset Graphics Override
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Set Graphics Override
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Set Graphics Override for Scans
:snowflake:_Pointcloud Set Graphics Override for Regions

New examples for use of these nodes can be found below and on my website here:

:snowflake:_Pointcloud Set Graphics Override for Scans - Visualizing Scan Locations

:snowflake:_Pointcloud RANSAC Plane Detection - Extracting Wall and Floor Points

I am looking forward to my first release for Dynamo 2.0 :slight_smile:

Very cool, thanks!
