Get #Revit Crop Region Element with #DynamoBIM
June 5, 2017
By John Pierson
A little while back I posted this clever little trick to obtain the crop region element from a section view.
Essentially it is normally “-1” of the view’s ElementID, but not always! Well, luckily I have been getting more into creating C# nodes for Dynamo and there are some pretty fun options within.
After reviewing a post from the very awesome Jeremy Tammik , I was able to make the following node.
Essentially what the node does is,
- Disable the crop region.
- Collect all visible elements.
- Enable crop region.
- Remove the previous stuff from a new collection, leaving the crop region. :)
This will be in the next Rhythm update, along with a lot of other useful ZeroTouch nodes!
Have Fun! -johnP
