Every day that passes I continue to see Dynamo as a powerful design tool able to provide useful feedback on tasks that would just take too many clicks using the traditional Revit User Interface. So, today, as I finished my presentation on Dynamo (archive link here), I kept thinking of different applications. Here I used a Structural Framing collector to apply a gradient graphic override by length. This could help an engineer/architect quickly understand the different bay sizes and opportunities for standardizing sizes and reducing costs.
You could also use it for verifying correct modeling by simply color coding using the z-offsets. When I say the possibilities are endless, it’s true! This color override ability is really something! It also highlights the need for collector nodes out of the box to avoid the current need for custom nodes/packages.
|How cool is this? Visually seeing structural framing color coded by its length without having to set up any v/g filters.|
