This video covers the most common nodes and techniques used to reference geometry and parameter data inside the Dynamo environment. It begins by covering the methods of selecting Revit elements, and then covers extracting the selected elements' geometry data and parameter data ready for use in Dynamo.
- [Narrator] When you start a Dynamo graph…for a Revit project, a common first step…is choosing exactly which Revit elements…you're interested in bringing into the Dynamo environment.…In this video, well cover some of the most common methods…for selecting Revit elements for use in Dynamo…and when it's best to use each method.…Let's begin by launching Dynamo…under the manage tab in Revit.…And go ahead and create a new home workspace.…All of the nodes that we're going to use to select Revit…elements are found in the Revit library under selection.…
The first method we'll cover is to bring Revit model…elements into Dynamo one at a time…by selecting them with your cursor in a Revit view.…Let's drop in a select model element node.…When we drop it in, we can see that it turns yellow.…That's a warning letting us know…that we haven't selected anything in Revit yet.…I'm going to set up my workspace so that Dynamo…takes up half the screen…and I can see Revit in the background.…To select our Revit element, we're going to first…
