Do you often face the problem that you need to generate a whole lot of detail section views in Autodesk Revit to document your BIM model? Do you generalize your drawings on your sheets to save time then?
With Dynamo it is possible to automate the view generation, based on your element size, orientation and direction. Select a bunch of elements, define which sections you want to have, define a name set for it and run the script. If you want to try yourself, then look at the bottom of this article for the whole dataset. If you want to learn more about how this script has been built up and how it works, then read this blog post.
Below you can see a video on how the script executes and reacts on changes made on the Revit objects.
The whole dataset can be downloaded here.
At the moment it is only implemented for columns and beams. Walls should be implemented very soon. But please, feel free to give any suggestions !
I hope you enjoy it !
