Rhino to Revit (SAT to Spring Nodes)

There are a couple of ways to go about this (all of which require Springs Nodes):

  1. If you are in a family environment it is as simple as this:
  2. If you are at the project level of a Revit project then there is a just a bit more that needs to be added:

In the end though, the results are pretty much the same. You should end up with native Revit, free form elements, some of which will even display handles which can be used to edit this geometry (usually simpler, rectilinear geometries such as boxes will be fully editable, other times things like lofted geometries might have and end face that is editable).



SAT-HandlesBe aware that there is a scaling issue currently with dynamo’s SAT import nodes where the they only read the geometry as though it were in meters, but this can be easily fixed through some creative scaling before “baking” it into Revit.

This workflow can also be used to bring SAT information into Revit from Inventor as well.

  1. Can we add some explanation to the conversion image? There are several nodes that seem to be doing the same thing?
