The volume of the wall hole


#1

I want to know about the volume of the hole in the wall, but I do not know how to operate it.


#2

You’re first going to have to set the variables of the size of the volume in a way that they’re controlled by parameters, then use the Element.SetParameterByName node.


#3

Can you tell me the specific operation?


#4

A lot of that is within Revit. I’d advice looking up at a specific tutorial for setting dimensions with parameters or ask about it on the Revit MEP forum (https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/revit-mep-forum/bd-p/188). After that come back and make a topic about the Element.SetParameterByName node.

I want to calculate the volume of the wall, filter out the hole less than 0.3m2

@434412446, you can get all the elements nested inside your wall (doors / windows / openings), using the “Element.Inserts” node from the Clockwork package:


Then query these inserts’ dimensions, volume, etc.

How to calculate the size of the hole, the volume?


#9

I can‘t query these inserts’ dimensions, volume, etc.

Here is something to get you started.
