Revit Circuit Referencing Using Dynamo

Revit Circuit Referencing Using Dynamo
One of the things I get asked regularly whilst teaching the electrical section of a Revit MEP course is whether you can re-format the circuit references for 3 phase circuits so that they look more like the UK standard. Autodesk Revit circuit referencing uses the US format for the 3 live phases which are A, B & C, whereas in the UK we use L1, L2, L3. Therefore, when you create electrical c...

A Quick Tip For Revit Room Volume Computation

A Quick Tip For Revit Room Volume Computation
Have you ever created a room in an Autodesk Revit floor plan and tagged it to get the area and volume, but for the volume it shows as ‘Room Volume is Not Computed’? This is because volume computation may affect Revit performance, so we enable it only when we want to prepare and print schedules or other views that report volumes. To see room volumes on the Properties palette, in tags, and in room ...
