Design technologist Colin McCrone gives a tutorial in Dynamo for Autodesk Revit for how to place adaptive component panels following conditions. To place multiple family types, establish yes/no, true/false, Boolean logic. Examples include attractor point log to select which family type to place among a discrete set.
- [Instructor] Let's look at the logic required…in Dynamo to place multiple family types…in Revit based on conditions.…In this exercise file, I'm starting…with a dome shape, or at least,…the points that describe the panels.…This is important because if we…visualize what this looks like with…pointlist.visualizepanels from the…ampersand package, we can see that…some panels have four sides while…others have three sides.…This will require that we make a distinction…on which family type is being placed in Revit.…That is, the adaptive component should be…placed with four points or three points.…
To make this distinction, let's look at…how many points each panel has.…We'll use list.count.…If we use list.count on the full list,…this will tell us how many panels we have.…But if we use it at one level down,…we use at level two, it will tell us…how many points per panel.…Here we can see we have threes and fours.…To make a distinction, or to separate…the lists of points based on this criteria,…we need to turn the three and four…
