Main purpose of the tool is to shape topography instance with help of model lines. Tool adds additional topography points along selected model lines. Line division can be per number of points or per distance between points. If there are more than one topography instance, tool will prompt to select only one. Read More
If you have many coordinates in Excel spreadsheet or in other table format, it’s easy to use the power of Dynamo to get those coordinates into Revit®.
In our example, we will use x, y, z coordinates to create model lines within Revit® project.
There are two ways to approach this problem:
- Coordinates represent continuous points (like in polyline)
- There are pairs of coordinates, each pair representing single line
In Revit®, computation height is the distance above the room level where room perimeter is measured.
By default, computation height is 0 units above base level of room. To place rooms, they first must be enclosed with room bounding elements. Read More
Far Clipping options in Revit
Far clipping is parameter that we control when creating section, elevation or callout.
The far clip plane is defined with the Far Clip Offset parameter. Read More
If the project is set up as Revit worshared model then sometimes a user can forget to relinquish his/her worksets and leave the office. Such situations often cause unnecessary frustration. However, there is a simple way to relinquish worksets, even if the user is not available. Read More
Setting Revit project units may sound trivial, but there are couple of hidden gems that everyone should know about.
To run project units dialog, on Revit ribbon go to Manage > Project Units, or use keyboard shortcut UN (as United Nations) like everyone do. Read More
