Tutorials – Python and the RevitAPI


So a while back I wrote a post about transforming Revit's internal coordinates to the Project/Survey coordinate systems. While it was a good stab, it wasn't the best implementation.. I was wildly unfamiliar with Transforms back then and saw them... Continue Reading →

Python Sets and examples…

While on the forums, one thing I don't see much of is using sets in their code where it is ideal (either in Dynamo Built-In Nodes or in python). Most of the time you see simple things made complicated with... Continue Reading →

Dynamo Utils – Revit Links…

Here are a few utility nodes for Revit Links that I created to help go back and forth between RevitLinkTypes, RevitLinkInstances and Revit Link Documents and get some basic attributes. This Post may be updated over time, so be sure... Continue Reading →

Location, Location, Location…

As you will probably know, Revit has a bunch of coordinate systems. You will certainly of heard of Project and Shared coordinates and maybe you may have heard of this illusive Project Internal Coordinate System at some point in passing... Continue Reading →
