I have to model in a simple way an entire town: I’ve seen various tutorial, but they aren’t complete for my work.
I have an entire folder with shape files (.shp), and my purpose is to “read” with dynamo one particular shape file that contains the profile of each building in the small town and other information such as the height of those.
I’ve downloaded a package, “GIS EXMAPLE infrabimgis.dyn”, but I don’t know how can I manage it to do want is my purpose.
With dynamo, I’d like to read the profile and extrude through the eight of each building, all info that are contained in the shape file.
How can I extrapolate those informations, and model all the buildings (as masses) in a fast way?
Hi! unfortunately the link above aren’t useful.
I share with you the .shp file (to open and explore this, you can use a free desktop app, QGis), and in particular i need the “FABBRIC.shp”.
In addition, i attached the two files of the pictures I used in the previous messages.
I have used DynamoGIS recently for something similar. In my case, there was no attribute for the height of the buildings (so I set it to a fixed/constant value) but transferred the GIS attributes into Revit parameters.
A couple of notes:
Shape files often have accompanying files of the same name, different extension that contain other data. In my case, there was a DBF file that contained attributes. The SHP file is just geometry
The units for GIS files (at least in Australia) are usually metres- so you might need some unit conversion, or set your Revit file to match
Hi! I find the problem of all.
In one warning (before I post the errors I said), showing me this message:
Notice: Inputs are outside of the allowed modelling interval: Consider choosing the Extra Large Coon Modeling setting from 1 to 100,000,000 in the “Settings => Geometry Interval” dialogue box
So I go to settings and I modify as shown in the dialogue error. Now: I try to put as default settings and I try the different combinations of settings and all work until the interval “Large” but no more.
Now all seems work properly: now I try to use the .dbf file to try to obtain the height of each building.
For now I thank you very much!
Now that I’m pretty satisfied, I’d like to “put” this “dynamo” result into a Revit file that I had created earlier: now I explain.With Revit, through the level curves I created the surface of a portion of territory. Now, I would like to place the buildings-masses made with dynamo, exactly on the previously created surface. How can I proceed?
