Learn how to create a custom node to process room boundaries.
- [Instructor] A good way to simplify things…when you're making scripts with Dynamo…is to create a custom node.…A custom node allows you to embed a number of nodes…to process the same group of information…in the same way without having it redo that work…each time you make a workspace.…Let's get started by opening Dynamo from the Manage tab,…open and browse to the CustomNode_Start.dyn,…and make sure to open in manual execution mode.…Here we have a workspace to take a room boundary…and split it by the inside and outside boundaries…and create polycurves for each of the respective boundaries.…
We're going to turn this into a custom node,…so if had to need to use this again in our other workspaces,…we can do so more easily.…I'm going to change my selection…to select this group of rooms down inside of Revit.…If I cross-select and select all the elements…inside of this rectangle and use the Filter tool,…I can filter to just select the rooms.…With these isolate sunglasses,…I can isolate so I can only see the rooms in this view.…
