In this second part, I submit to you a concept for making reinforcement on faceted slabs, aka floors with edited sub elements. Thanks Håvard for submitting such a shape….
OOTB Revit doesn’t like that much. Making rebars for this is a real pain.
It took me some time to figure out how to deal with that, as I first believe that Dynamo will be used the same way as for the wall of the part 1/2. I was wrong, or maybe not me but Revit was. Some kind of limitation for making UV grids on flat faces.
I started then to look for something else, and tried with edges. The result needs to be elaborate a bit, but the result I was looking for is here.
The video show you the process I followed, but I will explain some points.
I select the edges, then do an array of points from it; connect the points with curves; make Structural framing on them. Nothing really hard to figure out. The main problem is to order correctly the points on the edge so that it creates a grid like this
The image here is from a custom node, the most convenient way to repeat a bunch of node in a definition. The waited input is a boolean node, one per edge. The inputs for the custom node look like this
Have fun and ask questions if needed. Feedback much appreciated.
