It’s a discussion which is often discussed, but I couldn’t find anything after a quick search.
I’m trying to automate wall dimensioning in Elevation. (In Floorplan view this isn’t a problem, using dimensioning options for walls, openings, intersections and grids simplifies this process. Apparently an option many dynamo-users are unaware of based on the posts I’ve seen here.)
The problem is, I don’t have this automatic dimensioning available in elevation views.
Based on standard Revit behavior, there seems to be a hard-coded rule within Revit which recognizes faces perpendicular to the view for dimensioning. I’m sure most of you have encountered this issue when attempting to dimension walls within a view which is not perfectly parallel to the wall being dimensioned.
Does anyone know if the face-orientation to view orientation can be extracted?
