Workflow: Create Wall Opening for Ductwork in Revit 2016 using Dynamo


Hi folks!
Have you ever in Revit find it so tedious to track all the clash points between different disciplines and the architecture elements to address them.
Now with Dynamo you can do it so easy. Today’s workflow shows how to find the intersection points between ducts and the walls then using a simple python script we can add the wall opening in the proper position with an arbitrary width and height.
The image of the workflow may not be so clear so I’ll attach the dyn file.

  1. Any ideas on these workflows from a linked model but also for doors and windows? I work for a structural office and we have to create openings in walls and floors from linked architectural and mechanical models all the time. I have tried using steamnodes “Element.GetFromLinkedFile” and changing the category to doors. I can get it to grab the doors but that’s about it.

  2. Any ideas on applying this workflow to linked files but also for doors and windows? I work in a structural office and we have to manually create openings to match linked architectural and mechanical models all the time. I have tried changing the category to doors and then adding steamnodes “Element.GetFromLinkedFile” to your graph. It grabs the doors from the linked model but that’s about all that works.
