…and be clean everywhere

Yikes – somebody overwrote elements by view in Revit. Nasty, because it needs to be manually reset…

Or does it?

Well – some little Dynamo to the help

The Python behind it:

Thanks go to Clockwork for the idea…

Here we go again

Our friend came up with this.

A moon over Marin…

Edit: Song title by DK back then 199x so what… great psychobilly guitar riff BTW…

Once in a while – Sunday, not too much to prep for the coming week and the sky outside is depressingly grey, so – apert of some good food and drinks – what is better than a nice rendering… hold it – wait a second – “Rendering” – that is so 1990ies – but alas, it pleases the eye and sometimes makes you feel good…

So let’s go and we try to keep it easy…

Here we have a model – it’s our neighbours new flat…

Noname

Then we take our favourite tool for the job – Keyshot – kudos and a lot of them go to these people, girls and guys here… and you know us at LRCZ here – we are not easily endorsing stuff…

Click a button:

Noname

Keyshot 7 > Render

And now – sit back and relax for 5 to 10 minutes depending on your workstation (did I mention I like Xeon based ones a lot…)

Noname

And the result after a short wait:

Life is good – and our neighbours might be happy…

Again – Livingroomcraftz likes Keyshot:

How to kill a mockingbird…

Haven’t we all been there – we have a pristine model but – due to unforeseen circumstances it is flooded with parameters without value…

Dynamo to the rescue – let’s take a look – and – DISCLAIMER – this workflow is just bits and pieces that will be married together over the course of the following days – so please stay tuned…

First – here is a workflow to investigate which project parameter is bound to what and – does it actually have a value in your BIM or is it just a parameter-zombie…?!?

Capture.pngAs before – if you find that interesting feel free to get in touch…

So – running the workflow depicted above shows us that this parameter holds values:

Noname

The result –  a bravo to Data-Shapes for making this slick user interface possible – looks like this:

Noname

Loos pretty well used – so let it stay opposed to this one

Noname

So this is clearly unused – let’s see how to get rid of this:

We got a new Dynamo workflow – here:

Stay tunes…

We need some discipline…

So you need to do some heavy sculpturing work on your Revit model – like this:

Noname

So we basically need to cut through structural framing, a floor, two walls at the same time. Sounds like nightmare – but then Revit Massing is your friend – let’s turn on Massing in this view:

Noname

So -a body modelled as massing – and then just take the Join tool to sculpt your building

Noname

Result looks very fine…

And not even Dynamo involved – for that stay tuned… – and did I forget to mention – Life is Good

We care a lot…

If your sheet naming convention looks likes this:

Noname

And your sheet number needs to look accordingly:

Noname

Well, Dynamo to the rescue – just pull the parameter values you added to the sheets and compose the sheet name out of them:

Capture.png

Here we go – get sheets:

Noname.png

Pull parameter values and compose the string:

Noname.png

Push the string to the sheet parameter “Sheet Number”

Noname

Simple and easy – that’s what Dynamo should be…. and life is good…
