I’m using dynamo 1.0 and am finding some strange behaviour when trying to set a watts parameter in Revit. Using dynamo I’m doing some simple math (area * watts/m² to obtain total watts for the space), I can see the correct results appearing in a watch node but the numbers appearing in Revit are about 11 times less than expected. So for example when the result should be 100 (watts) it appears in Revit as 9 Watts (9.29 to be exact). I remember having to do a similar conversion in my past when converting ft² to m² and for some strange reason I think this conversion is barging it’s way in during the set parameter process.
So there’s a few things to note here:
Area conversions should not even enter in to this discussion. I’m simply trying to write a value to a wattage parameter. I know that I’m using an area parameter earlier in the equation but for testing purposes I’ve just tried setting a parameter to a value of 100 and the strange values persist.
I appreciate that there is a unit conversion node in Dynamo. I thought well I’ll just use this to reverse this bizzare occurrence and just move on but this seems to fall over once I start using larger numbers.
The question I’m asking is how can I get around this?
Further questions are has anyone experienced this in the past? Have you successfully dealt with this? Am I completely losing my mind and doing something silly?
Thanks in advance.
