Now you can find our custom package BIM Regime for Dynamo on Dynamo Packages or simpy download the package by searching it in your Dynamo session.
Some of the nodes from the packages are shown below with examples.
Get Family Name
This node will give us the name of the family (NOT family type name) of a particular family instance in the Revit project. It does not matter whether it’s a system family or a loadable family.
Remove Blank Values
It simply removes blank values from the input list giving you a clean list.
This node gives a null output when a certain boolean condition is false stopping the futher run of the script in order to keep a check on wrong input values. When the boolean is set to true it will pass the input as it is.
Ever wondered how to filter out elements in Autodesk Navisworks Manage by their Revit worksets?
Worksets in Navisworks can give you greater control over your model data. You can perform various filtering, formatting on the worksets. It is also easier to extract parametric data out of Navisworks when you have clearly defined worksets.
Export the 3D model in NWC format. Remember to keep the “Close NWC/NWD files on load” checkbox ticked while saving as *.nwc. Without this checked, the file lock is on and you cannot overwrite the file unless you close the current Navisworks file where it is appended to.
2. Append the file in Navisworks Manage. Select any element and right-click and make sure that the Set Selection Resolution is kept as the First Object. It will make the object path start at the highest level of objects below the layer node, if applicable.
3. You can see all the property data of the selected Revit element from the Properties panel in the Home ribbon. This is for our viewing purpose.
4. Now open Selection Tree panel (Ctrl+F12), and select Properties from the drop down menu.
As worksets are a property of the elements, go to Element > Workset.
Here you can find all the worksets (only those that contain elements) from your Revit project.
5. You can right-click and tick Hide Unselected to isolate the elements of the specific workset.
Click on Selection Inspector and it will show all the elements of that particular workset. Click Save Selection for all the entities in Workset.
Now you can find all the worksets under the Sets in the Selection Tree. All the filtering and sorting could be performed on these worksets.
Tip: To sort or filter elements of different categories based on their parametric values Find Items is a pretty handy feature.
Go to View > Windows > Find Items
You can search in the already defined worksets or other selection sets to narrow down the filtering.
STL and OBJ files have become a standard in the 3D printing industry. Many 3D modeling and computer graphics programs such as Autodesk Maya, Blender, Sketchup, Cinema 4D can produce these models in a pretty nifty manner.
For color 3D printing with precise mesh encoding, OBJ files prove to be a useful format while preserving the precise mesh encoding. You may get yourself a free 3D model from Oyonale.
You can see the 3D model in any free 3D object viewer. The 3D Viewer from Microsoft is a great application that comes with Windows 10.
