Workflow Repost: Tekla Structural Model to Excel to Revit with Dynamo


This comes via Jia-Lin Chou on LinkedIn at this Source Link

In Tekla

1. Manage → Organizer to open project organizer

2. Open Settings to create new template

 

 

 

 

 

3. Create new Template, create new Columns, search the following Properties:
[ Name, Number, Start_X, Start_Y, Start_Z, End_X, End _Y, End _Z, Height, Width, Profile ]

4. Select all element of the model, then Export data to Excel

In Excel

1. Save as new table sheet file, delete Row 1 ~ 4,
Sort Name Column to each new sheet

2. For Position data, delete other data Column except Start and End X, Y, Z

In Dynamo

1. Create Point, Line for Structural System (girder, beam) from excel file

2. Create another Point, Line for Structural Column with the same workflow

In Revit (with Dynamo add-in)

1.Create a Code Block list depending on the levels.
(can just ignore the typical levels)
2. Filter to divide each part from levels
(repeat this step to create each level’s filter list)

3. StructuralFraming.BeamByCurve
(do not create the entire model, do only for the non-typical levels)
(you can also filter and sort more frame lists to create different types by step.2)

4. Create the columns with the same workflow

Next time I’ll write the rest part of Number and Profile dimension linking.
