Unit 2: Revit Element Creation

Structural Framing

Structural Framing

In this lesson we will introduce Dynamo’s basic tools for adding Structural Framing Elements to a Revit document.  The end result will be a linear array of beams across the atrium of our building mass.

Family by Point

Family by Point

In this lesson we will introduce Dynamo’s family by point node.  The end result will be a two-dimensional array of photovoltaic panels on the roof of our building.

Adaptive Components

Adaptive Components

In this lesson we will introduce Dynamo’s Adaptive components by point node.  The end result will be a series of vertical trusses along a doubly skinned façade system.  This will take a closer look at plane/solid intersection and list management.

Adaptive Levels

Adaptive Levels

In this lesson we will use the Set Parameter Node to parametrically control a level in our Revit Project.  We’ll refer to the great potential behind using Dynamo to control documentation sets, views, and sheets. Dynamic level adjustment will show changes in the 3D model, as well as sheet adjustments with automated visibility settings.
