Hi, I would like to know if it will be possible in the future to create Revit Reference planes using RiR in the following ways:
Inside the family environment, similar to how we add FamilyElement.ByBrep and other elements. At first I thought this could be done through Sketch Planes, but then I discovered they serve a different purpose.
Reference planes could be created based on GH planes, although I suspect we would need to indicate the visual extents of the plane just like we do in Revit. Creating them through lines could also be an option, so extents and even plane orientation are implied through line start and end points.
Inside the project environment, as I understand a different method would need to be used in order to bake separately inside a family environment and the project environment.
Connected to this, the possibility to create Revit Dimensions aligned with these planes, assign parameters and lock these dimensions would simplify the process of setting up the building blocks of a Revit family, only leaving geometry alignment up to the user.
Reasoning: It’s common practice in family creation to align and lock geometry and dimensions / parameters to reference planes and reference lines (which act as the bones of the family and tend to behave more consistently with changes). While RiR currently gives the possibility of instantly modifying and reloading Revit families, this workflow would hopefully approach one of the standard methods of family creation in Revit, only with the added unlimited power of GH automation!
Thanks a lot for this technology, keep up the good work!!
