Hello, I am new to Rhino.Inside and I was wondering how to create Spatial elements (and then set some IFC parameters) from a Rhino model inside Revit. The standard add direct shape geometry does not work for the job. Would anyone know what would work for this?
Thanks a lot!
the spaces category for a direct shape is not allowed by the REVIT API
see dynamo error
you may need to consider using a different category because spaces is a system family category so its a bit limited
That is a bit of a bummer, because working with engineering Spatial elements are basically what I need to interact from/to Revit, but thanks a lot for your answer, always good to know the limitations.
What would you like to do with Spatial Elements in Revit?
In many ways spatial elements geometry is read-only. But with Rhino.Inside.Revit it is easy to mix and match with custom shapes and meta-data alongside the Revit spatial shapes.
Guide to Spatial Elements in RIR
This is an example of looking at occupancy and adjacency.
Thanks for your answer! The idea is to do energy building simulation in GH and then visualize the zones back in Revit in 3D, color-coded according to the energy consumption results.
In the case of the example above I just did a box to try around, but in the real workflow I would get the breps that I use as zones to do the building simulation.
We just posted a new build and a new Guide about Materials that will help create color coding in Revit if you would like.
