Automate Panels In Revit

August 16, 2018

Programming can be an alternative way for any repetitive task that consumes a lot of time such as the mentioned subject "Facade", Creating panels it's look like an easy task but to be honest it's not ! it's required accuracy and time, also you could face some complex shapes that can't be modeled perfectly. For that i developed a script that could help you also it's may open the door for you to develop it more based on your needs.

 

 

 

 

Family Creation: 

 

 

Before we start with dynamo we need to understand how to create a proper family "Adaptive component".  the number of adaptive points depend on family shape for example Hexagon panels need 6 points check the picture below, Quad panels need 4 points, Diamond panels need 3 or 4 points and so on. We will cover two types of panels Quad and Diamonds and how to create family for each.

 

 

 

Quad Panels:

 

Please follow the below Video for creating the family.

 

 

 

 

Diamond Panels:

 

Diamond Panels consist of two family types one of 3 adaptive points and the other 4 adaptive points. for the 4 points you can follow the previous video for the quad family without creating the frame and for the 3 points watch the below video for 3 adaptive point family.

 

Dynamo Code:

 

The below dynamo script depends on floor edges to model the panels which is super FAST. remember you can use the below script in two ways either by level to level or for all levels with one click, for the second way it's only recommended when all levels are TYPICAL otherwise stick to the first way, don't worry i will cover both ways. just stay focus.

 

So, what do you need?

 

   1- Install the below package.

        a- Data-shapes.

        b- Dyn-BIMHEX

 

   2- Follow the below scripts and videos ,if you feel lazy it's OK! just request the script and i will share them                with you. 

 

 

Quad Panels:

Please Watch the video Below.
