Trying to get all solids in a nested family. (Family editor)
Some solids listing as surfaces. When is a solid not a solid?
This part says it is a solid in the part family when I select the geometry.
In the Top-level famliy when i get it’s geomery in dynamo it shows as surfaces.
Imported geometry from SolidWorks using BIMDeX.
Is there a way to convert these to solids?
You could try the OOTB Solid.ByJoinedSurfaces node with your list of surfaces.
just try this out
filter the elements containing the surfaces use polysurface.byjoinedSurfaces node and make into a poly surface first and then use Polysurface.ExtractSolids node now you get a solid geometry then you can convert it into direct shape by using DirectShape.ByGeometry node
It looks to be a problem with Dynamo. The part in question is continuously coming up as a solid when queried in Revit. It only falls apart when being accessed in Dynamo. Any insight on this?
