Different processes are required to place the different varieties of Revit families, including components, walls, and floors. This video covers the process of placing family components, which have a single origin and can be placed by defining the location of the family's origin; walls, which are placed along a line or curve; and floors, which are placed by drawing a closed loop of boundary curves.
- [Instructor] When you're working in Revit,…slightly different processes are required…to place the different varieties of Revit families.…For example, some Revit families only require a single click…to place them in a view, whereas walls, for example,…would require you to draw a line or a curve…and floors would require you to draw…an entire closed boundary.…In this video, we're going to cover…some of the different ways to use Dynamo…to place these different kinds of Revit families.…Let's take a moment to get to know…the workspace on the screen.…In an earlier video in the course,…we generated this surface in Dynamo…by lofting two curves together.…
We also generated a grid of points on that surface…using the point and parameter node.…We're also using another point and parameter node…to generate four curves across the surface,…spanning from the back to the front.…Taking a look at our Revit project for a moment,…we can see these points and curves…previewed in our Revit 3D view.…In this video, we're going to use…each of these Dynamo geometry objects as a way of placing…
