Notching Beams in Grasshopper Rhino.Inside.Revit

Hiya, Does anyone know if you can instigate a beam notch from within Grasshopper? The element contains a parameter “notching distance” but I was also expecting perhaps a boolean parameter for if a notch is included or not. The notching distance does nothing if the notch is not included.

Here’s a simple python script that will Set the Coping(aka Notch) and another to Remove the coping. (8.7 KB)


Hi @Japhy ,
Thanks for your response. I have tried to use the Python component you kindly sent. But I am running into an error.

Am I using it incorrectly?

What version of Rhino.Inside.Revit are you in?

Rhino.Inside Revit: 1.3.7983.15227 (11/09/2021 08:27:34)

[Expanded Information]
Rhino: 7.16.22067.13001 (Rhino 7)
Revit: 2018.3 (20190510_1515(x64))

That’s a really old version. Line 16 isn’t used and can be removed.

Open the editor by double clicking on the Python symbol and then remove lines 15 & 16 please.


Thanks Japhy, I think I will update my software :smiley:
