Trim Walls at Architectural columns using dynamo

dynamo

Hi,

I would like to trim my walls at Architectural columns to remove overlaps between walls and architectural columns. Can any one suggest me how to do it using dynamo.

Are you just trying to change the wall height to go up to the bottom of the column? If so you just need to find the start elevation of the column and the wall overlapping and change the wall height to it. Anything more complicated would need a more detailed explanation and example.

Here is the attachment how before (top) and after (bottom) expectation

Oh you want to split walls based on architectural columns. Unfortunately it is not possible as even the API doesn’t let you split existing walls. There are many posts about workarounds but they pretty much all involve recreating the wall using location data. If it is what you are willing to do, try searching for it in the forums.
