Hi Dynamo folks!
In a given Revit file, I would like to add couplings at specified places along conduit. Manually, when using the split tool, we are able to add the coupling and retain the relationship between both pieces of conduit and the coupling (when you select then tab, the entire run is selected).
We’ve been able to get pretty close to a solution in Dynamo, that allows us to select a detail line and intersecting conduit, then split the conduit at that point and add a coupling. There are two issues, however, that make this current solution unusable:
Instead of splitting the conduit, the section of conduit is replaced with two new conduits (each with new ids). These two pieces of conduit and the associated coupling no longer have a relationship. Selecting and tabbing shows they are no longer considered part of the run.
The replacement conduit is of the wrong diameter. We haven’t been able to figure out how to create 2" conduit and couplings where the default is 1".
If anyone knows of a solution to either (or both) of these problems, I’d greatly appreciate the insight!
