Truss - Rhino.Inside Revit

Hello everyone,
Does anyone know if it is possible to push into Revit truss elements?
Any suggestion highly appreciated.
Thanks

Its available in the API, any particular components needed for your workflow?

Hi,
unfortunately not an API literate.
I am aiming to build a work flow to import Trusses into Revit starting from a location curve.
That’s an example from the Dynamo forum…

A create Truss by curve component is totally doable. We’ll get you a python component to hold you over while it’s in the queue. The primary difference is that python component won’t have element tracking.

That would be fantastic anyway.

Here’s a simple add truss python component

Amazing. You legend!

Hi, have been using this script a lot, thanks so much.
I noticed though that the trusses come with no work-plan associated. I tried to set it using the Element Parameter node, but it seems to be read-only.
Could you kindly recommend a way to do so?
Thanks

If you place a Truss through the UI it Associated the WP with the Level (or a WP you set before hand)

In rhino.inside.revit we are adding in a sketch plane which is temporary, hence the . In the Revit API that’s the only option. So even if we use a Level input it’s still not associated.

Thanks a lot for this anyway. Not sure if this can help but using the Dynamo script linked above it does associate a reference level. Many thanks
