Within the first phase, we speak about how you’ll be able to get admission to Dynamo from Revit, discover the Dynamo interface, node, and fix nodes. On this instructional, you’ll see how you’ll be able to get admission to Revit components and alter them. This instructional is an easy script. We can see {that a} Dynamo script doesn’t want to be difficult. Even a easy script can lend a hand.

Case Situation

Let’s see the state of affairs we’ve got right here. We’ve got a desk structure, and we wish to rotate all tables 45deg at every base level. We don’t have a rotation attitude parameter, and we will be able to’t use rotate instrument. Rotate instrument will rotate all components immediately on a unmarried base level. In some circumstances, we will be able to delete the weather, rotate one example then use the array instrument. However no longer as of late. The tables’ positions are random. There is not any out-of-the-box Revit to do it, so we’re going to use Dynamo.

Hiding Parts

The issue with deciding on items with Dynamo is you want to choose the weather as soon as. You’ll be able to’t pick out a couple of components many times the usage of the SHIFT key or filter out the choice in Revit. Sure, in fact, you’ll be able to filter out components the usage of a script, however we received’t duvet it now.

So you want to make Revit received’t be in a position to choose the weather once we run the script. The best way to do it’s to cover the weather.

Make a selection the weather close to the weather that you need to rotate, however you need to exclude them. Press HH to quickly cover them. You’ll be able to briefly unhide them by means of urgent HR.

Revit Classes

Now let’s open Dynamo from the Arrange tab, Visible Programming panel.

Create a brand new report.

Enlarge the Revit class within the Dynamo Library. Realize that you’ll be able to in finding all Revit-related nodes right here.

Settling on Parts in Dynamo

There are lots of tactics to choose components in Revit. On this instructional, we’re going to make a choice the weather manually.

In finding the Make a selection Type Parts node underneath the Variety sub-category. You’ll be able to additionally use the quest instrument. Proper-click at the empty house in your workspace, then sort the node title. You don’t must sort the precise title, so it turns out to be useful to understand what you need to do however don’t know the precise node title.

The node has a button within the node. Click on to turn on variety mode. Now transfer to Revit and make a window variety to choose the weather.

Trace: It’s more straightforward should you transfer the Dynamo window to help you see the weather.

After deciding on the weather, you’ll be able to see the node lists all components ID you decided on prior to.

Rotating the Parts

You’ll be able to rotate the chosen components the usage of the SetRotation node. In finding the node the usage of the quest instrument.

SetRotation calls for two inputs: the weather to rotate and the rotation attitude. We have already got the weather, and now we want another node to outline the rotation attitude.

Upload the Quantity Slider node. The quantity slider supplies a host enter, however as an alternative of typing the worth, you’ll be able to use the slider to regulate the worth.

Let’s configure this slider. Click on the arrow button at the left facet (1). The node expands and displays you extra choices. Set the minimal worth to 0 (2) and the utmost worth to 360 (3). Since the complete rotation is 360, then that may be our most worth. Alternate the step to fifteen.

Now you’ll be able to attach the nodes the usage of wires.

Attempt to transfer the slider to modify the rotation attitude. When you set the script to run mechanically, you must see the adjustments in Revit straight away. When you set it to run manually, don’t disregard to click on run.

There you pass, now you know the way to have interaction with components in Revit the usage of Dynamo!

Bankruptcy Abstract

There are lots of tactics to have interaction with Revit components. On this phase, we make a choice them the usage of guide variety. We can see how you’ll be able to make a choice components by means of classes within the subsequent instructional.
