I’m new to dynamo and it placing my framing family fine but setting the start and end point from the xyz input has been a bit of a struggle.
Over view of what I’m trying to achieve:
Excel generated layout with xyz start and then a overall length of the framing element
Dynamo to read the Family type from excel, and place those instances at the specified xyz coordinates at the set length
After this I plan to build this out as well to generate my columns as well
Issues so far:
Framing appears to be coming in at the center mark of a default length and I cannot manage to set the overall length correctly
in order to create structural framing in Revit using dynamo you need two points or a line defined first
for structural columns you only need one point
so I would recommend you do the following
in your excel spreadsheet
create an x1,y1,z1 and then an x2,y2,z2
then bring that to dynamo then
in dynamo create a line between those points
in dynamo create a structural beam on that line that you created in dynamo bewteen the points you got from excel
the beam type you could still pull form excell
Thanks Marcello, I had just figured it out as I saw this post
Just what I came up with, Thanks!
Hello Marcello, your replies vert heplful for me,
and I have more question…
you advised structural frames needs two points, but then, we only get a straight line.
If I want to make curved structural frames, how can I do that?
actually I want to draw curved frames that has two or more changing sections…
search for nodes that start with ARC…
