I am a Rhino/ Grasshopper user transitioning to Revit/Dynamo.
I am trying to produce a variable facade panelling system that will finally work through an attractor point/curve- the image below was modeled in Rhino.
In trying to execute the same system in Revit, I have created a Curtain Panel family which i have then applied to a Generic Mass. The generic mass has 2 checkerboard patterned surfaces, one of which is indented and globally rotated.
I created the single unit family with a parameter - ‘bevelOffset’, which determines the innermost edge.
I am trying to use Dynamo to set individual values to that parameter for every panel; The value of said parameter will be deteremined by a measured distance, but for now I am just using the Z-values of each family instance’s centroid.
Through dynamo I have retrieved the name of the parameter, but Element.SetParameterByName fails.
