When we are representing Topography in a lot of our early design, we show it as a stepped site at determined intervals.This is just a graphical preference for our office, once the project progresses, a true topography is utilised.
I have devised a Dynamo>Revit workflow that gets the topography and plots the contours and the perimeter as line work (modelcurves) in Revit. This allows us to tab select the the contour lines to create the steps, not only saving a lot of time, but also allows us to set different height contour intervals.
The question is, that once I have extracted the contour lines and the perimeter, is it possible to get Dynamo to create the plates automatically? I have tried Extracting the Point Z values of the Curves and then Grouping them with the the highest contour line, but getting to the next step where it will create and outline curve that I can then set at a specific level has me a little stumped.
I was thinking that using the Floor.ByOutlineTypeAndLevel node would be a good way of getting the information back into the Revit model, That way the floor thickness could be set by the contour intervals and the Level set by the Z coordinates of the Curves? Below is the beginnings of the script…
Any help would be appreciated, otherwise the current workflow is good timesaver.
