Design technologist Colin McCrone describes SIM considerations and methods to import geometry from Dynamo Studio to Autodesk Revit. Methods include direct shape, import instance, Revit forms, and adaptive components.
- Let's look at several methods available…for us to get panels that are created in Dynamo into Revit.…Now, this isn't as straightforward as you might think,…just because Revit doesn't have a category…for dumb geometry.…It has to be some category that you can specify…or you can schedule…or some type of thing that you could order…and put on a truck.…Basically, you have a few options,…but there are a few things you should consider first…before choosing one.…First, do the panels need to be imported…as individual instances?…That is, would you like to be able…to select them individually,…and would you like to be able to schedule them…and apply data individually or collectively?…Next, do you need to be able to apply materials,…and do the materials have to be different?…Some methods of import, for example,…require that all the panels have the same material,…which may not be what you're after.…
And lastly, file size.…Depending on the method you choose,…you may have the perfect solution the way it looks,…but the BIM file might be too large.…
