Having fun with Programming and BIM




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 →

Animate Phases with Dynamo…

So, I made a script many years ago when first learning Dynamo Zero-Touch Nodes to animate Revit via Dynamo. The problem I found was, unlike Grasshopper, where you can create a counter node relatively easily, in Dynamo there was no... Continue Reading →

Split columns…
