Hi, I am a fairly advanced Rhino user, with very basic knowledge of Revit and Grasshopper.
As a student, I am trying to determine the best way to hop right into learning the Rhino.Inside.Revit workflow.
Specifically, even after watching a handful of YouTube tutorials, I feel like I still wasn’t able to determine if you can edit/create elements in either the Rhino or Revit interface outside of GH.
For example, say I began in Rhino, and I’ve reached the point in a conceptual model where I am ready to start adding more developed systems, which I do not want to manually model (i.e. curtain walls, window, mullions, doors, etc.) but also don’t want to lose the iterative benefits of Rhino. Is that a good point to use RIR to bring that model into Revit?
Q1) At this point, can I go into the Revit workspace and start attaching native elements to the imported model?
Q2) Will those Revit elements then be added back to the original Rhino model?
Q3) Can I then return to my Rhino workspace, see the added Revit elements, and return to editing in Rhino, all real-time?
In other words, does a single model simultaneously exist in both workspaces? Or does workflow become a series of: model to a point in one workspace, export using RIR, model in other space, export back? If so, during the switching, will Revit and Rhino recognize previously added native elements if unchanged during the “swap”?
I have watched the workflow tutorials on importing Rhino elements as families. The Rhino model enters the Revit workspace as pinned elements and most instructors leave them as such. Can these objects be edited in the Revit workspace which then update the form in the Rhino space?
