DynaPAT - Ultimate Pattern Maker for Revit by Dynamo

As you know, there are plenty of good solutions to make custom patterns for Autocad.
But, if you are really into Revit, there are not many choices. In my case, I've used a solution for Autocad, and used *.pat files from it. I can't say it's very inconvenient, but can't say it great either.

I know there are some apps which creates patterns for Revit.
They can create pattern directly in Revit. And some of them have a bit complicated options.

But I haven't seen below functions from any of them.

1. Non square pattern.
2. Patterns with curves.
3. Honeycomb(hexagonal) pattern.
4. Custom pattern size. (I know pattern can be scaled when be used, but..)

So.... I developed a pattern maker named DynaPAT using Dynamo.

Separating Compound Families using Dynamo

It's been quite a long time for me using Revit.
When I started to use it, I always had a question that why I can't separate walls and floors from multiple layers in Revit.

Because, as an architect, I wanted to use singular compounded wall or floor families for schematic design, then change them as separated ones for D.D and C.D phase.

FormWork Generator by Dynamo

Cast-in-Place Concrete is mostly used in construction site in Korea instead of Precast.
So calculating Formwork area is one of the most important work at a site.

When a Man Loves Revit

Few years ago, the world famous singer, Michael Boltton visited Korea to have his concert. 'When a Man Loves Woman' is one of his great hits.

I love Revit. But, sometimes I almost forget it while I struggle with technical issues in busy projects.  So, I do some useless works when ever I realize it.

What do you imagine when you think about LOVE? There can be a lot of candidates, But nobody can deny that flowers should be one of the strong ones. Especially ROSES.

So, I decided to give a rose to Revit to prove my love for her. (Please don't tell my wife)

Dynamo List Usage Examples

It's been more than three years after my old post about Dynamo List Actions.

It was based on v0.8, now we are using v2.0.

I know there are plenty of web pages which shows almost the same now. But I'm posting mine for someone visits my blog and the old links as well.

You can see the page through the button at left looks like bottom.

It will be updated if there comes anything new.

You can get all of them at a glace as usual.

Enjoy :)

Location of Slope's Section Line

When a symbolic line has to overlapped on a model section line, Revit gives us snap to find exact location of the line except below case.

Of course it's not very important. We can just draw a line at nearest location.
But, I just don't like it. WE ARE ENGINEERS!!!

Movable Annotations In A Symbol Family

There are some families which include annotations. And some of them can be more convenient to use if locations of texts are parametric.


Above are common level symbol we are using. What do you think is the best way to express those at documents using Revit?
