Tunnel Modeling with Dynamo

From the BIM and Others blog:

February 04, 2017


Last week I had a nice conversation with one of my Italian friends. The focus of the conversation was how to model a tunnel in Revit starting from an Excel list of points coming out from Civil 3D.
So the answer was: Dynamo of course!

First input, the section of the tunnel with his diameter; I can't share the details but lets say that we have:
  • Theoretical excavation profile: 200 mm 
  • Precast segment thickness: 500 mm

Whit this two elements and the excel of the theoretical cent alignment, we can do everything!

Revit profile family

The first family we're going to create is a simple circle profile with a diameter parameter. This family will be as a mass category to be able to nest it later in an adaptive component family for the tunnel.
Just save this family...easy!
