Modelling for Revit - Rhino inside revit or Grasshopper inside revit

I would like to convert what I model in Rhino into relevant Revit categories.
For instance if you are modelling a house in Rhino an you would like to convert the rhino walls(I know in Rhino it is just geometry) into revit walls and floors to revit floors etc… Is that possible?
The RhinoInside tutorials are all about converting a line into a revit wall etc… And it is more about manipulating in Grashopper. What would be nice is to use Rhino as a modelling tool(and not only Grasshopper) since it does it so much better than Revit, and use Revit for what Revit is good for.
Is that possible ?

Hi User514,

There are a few things to consider.

The primary one is that Rhino.Inside.Revit by definition has to operate by Revit’s rules. In your Wall example the Revit API can create a native (editable) wall 5 ways. You will need to organize your Rhino with this in mind, even in the simplest workflows, the upside is the potential for automation & doing things neither Revit or Rhino are capable of on their own.

VisualARQ Rhino plugin has additional capabilities in the Rhino Object to Native Revit Object, but it too has to play by the rules.

Hi, Japhy, thank you for your answer. Does that mean that you have to model your house in Rhino Using only lines that represent walls, but without defining height or width? Sort of a stacked plan drawing showing only one side of walls? And then through grasshopper convert it to a Revit model ?

I think you can define the height of walls through the “Add Wall (Curve)” component which allows you to input the height

Regarding width (I guess you mean thickness), that depends on the type of wall that you have inputted into the component (otherwise it will be a default type) - you can create different wall types in Revit and then assign it in Rhino in Revit with Grasshopper

I think you can still model in Rhino, but you will have to have a script to extract different information for generating a Revit model (e.g. close outline to make a floor, exploded lines for walls, etc…)

Hi XV,
thank you for your answer and the helpful screenshot.
Best regards

Thank you both for answering.
I guess Rhino inside Revit is more for generative geometries and not so much for classic building design.
