I have this mechanical design situation where I need to calculate the airflow differentials in a network of spaces to based on the pressure setpoint for each space. Fortunately, I have already created an XLS workbook that can do this. The problem is, it requires a lot of input. I’ve managed to script information transfer from the project file to the XLS for some of this information.
The obstacle I’m facing is this: I need to identify unique space-to-space relationships and retrieve the length of the wall that separates the two spaces. This presents a special problem due to the fact that it’s not enough that a wall separates the two spaces; I need to know if only a portion of that wall separates those two spaces and the remainder of the length of that wall separates other spaces (Think corridor in an office building. The corridor wall can be “X” feet long with a bunch of office along the corridor, so each wall section dividing the corridor from each office is some fraction of “X.”) Is this something that can be done by intersecting room boundaries? I don’t have much experience dealing in Dynamo nodes with Rooms as I am a lowly mechanical engineer.
BTW, is there any particular reason all this geometry content is for Rooms and the content available for Space is scant?
Thanks for your help!
