Yes, I can convert a rhino surface to a mesh if required before exporting.
In regards the to the appropriate category in Revit, most landscape architects typically use Revit Floors as the best way to create landscape hard paving elements, as it allows us to add structural layers (i.e. the paver, the crushed rock it sits on, filter fabric etc…) which is revealed when we cut a section. If it is a native Revit Floor, we can modify the display qualities of the element (i.e. hatch, colour, line type etc…) Is this possible with a DirectShape?
Thanks so much,
Can I just say, Rhino in Revit is fantastic and a game changer for us - it hopefully means we can continue modeling in Rhino (as we always have), but get info into Revit for documentation and collaboration with others.
Hi, thanks !
I’ve already seen this.
But this only add points on the planar face of a floor. What i need is a component that allows the creations of floors with points that have different elevations. Do you of any way this can be possible ?
You can do all the graphic control you want if you create Site Categories with Sub-Categories. You could create a component family for each hard paving element or create one family for all the elements. Then assign sub-categories to each hard layer.
Do you have a simple example Rhino file, I bet we can rig something up with that.
Thanks for answering !
I’m afraid i can’t visualize what you are describing.
Basically we can do whatever we want now in rhino+revit+rhino inside, because you guys did a great job with this piece of software obviously the best !
Problems start showing up when we try to create editable element (comparable to native revit floors with height points) out of complex geometries (such as the mesh in the file i uploaded). If you can show me how we can use this type of geometry to create revit floor elements the whole office i work in will spend a happy day !
Get the Element ID of using the Element Passport component and paste into the Manage>Select By Element ID, it may be a units/location issue and be out of the view. Selection Box (BX) will isolate the element you selected by ID.
