Unit 1: Revit Element Modification

Introduction

Introduction

This video serves as a brief introduction to the course, discussing the benefits of a parametric conceptual mass.

Editing Elements in Revit

Editing Elements in Revit

In this lesson we will introduce the building mass for the course, demonstrate its parametric flexibility, and explain the geometric applications of its parameters.  This introduction will be entirely in Revit.

Editing Elements in Dynamo

Editing Elements in Dynamo

In this lesson we will edit building mass parameters from within the Dynamo environment.  Run Automatically will be checked so the user can visualize a range of building mass options.

Editing Multiple Parameters

Editing Multiple Parameters

In this lesson we will edit multiple parameters for the building mass in dynamo.  In order to do this properly, we’ll introduce lists into our workflow.  Lists will be a critical focus for the remainder of the lesson.

Editing with Formulas

Editing with Formulas

In this lesson we will set several parameters for our building mass in Dynamo.  Without geometric constraints explicitly defined in the mass family, we will introduce numerical constraints to create new parameters.  Formulas and conditional statements will also be introduced.
