I’m interested in how I can automate an assembly view creation through Dynamo. Creating the Assembly and then creating those sheets. I realize this is going to have to be scripted with nodes using Python, but that’s far out of my league at this point. Has anyone accomplished Spool Drawings using this? Schedule Sizing and Sheet Placement Automation? I have found Harry Mattison’s code from AEC DevCamp 2012. Does anyone know where I should start? Thank you! I appreciate any support at this point!
Thanks to Julie Benoit, his new release of Steam Nodes answers this original question. The only problem I seem to be having now, is how to rename these assemblies. At this point in time it is defaulting the nme to the category that it is classified under, and then just adding an additional number to each subsequent assembly. Here is my current layout. I would love to know the solution! Thanks everyone!
This right here shows the power of the Dynamo community!!! Thank you Julien!
I am not sure if I understood this right, but Revit already has an almost automated process for creating assembly sheets, views and schedules.
When you select a family (or building component) and create the assembly, there is an icon called ‘Create Views’. This will show a window where you can select all possible views within a specific scale (3D Ortho, Plan, Sections, Elevations, Part List, Material takeoff, Schedules), and also select the titleblock family (size and type). All you have to do is to drag the views into the desired position.
I see that among some options you have with Dynamo is to write some parameters (sheet name, checker, author, etc.), but what else you need that is missing from this built-in Revit alternative?
