Bringing in a Revit® model to Rhino®

This sample shows how to take Revit objects into Rhino

Revit Geometry brought into Rhino

Open Sample files:

  1. Open the standard Revit sample file RAC_basic_sample_project.rvt.
  2. Setting the view to the standard Revit 3d view helps see what is happening in this tutorial
  3. Start Rhino inside Revit by pressing the the Rhino icon under Add-Ins.
  4. In the Rhinoceros Toolbar in Revit, open Rhino and a new blank Rhino model.
  5. Start Grasshopper within Rhino.
  6. Open the Sample_Revit-to_rhino.gh

Bringing across the model:

The Grasshopper definition is split up in a series of categories with a button to activate each one individually. Please note that the first one you use may not show as the Rhino model probably is not zoomed into the correct area of the model by default.

  1. Zoom into the top section of the definition where Roofs are going to be transferred. Revit Roof brought into Rhino
  2. Click on the Button to the right of the definition. This will activate and import the Roof geometry on a Layer in Rhino called Roof.
  3. Click on the Zoom Extents icon in Rhino to find the Roof geometry. This will set the view so you can see the rest of the transfers.
  4. Zoom in the next section in Grasshopper definition on theWalls section. Revit Roof brought into Rhino
  5. Click on the Button to the right of the definition. This will bring in the walls.
  6. Go to each successive section in Grasshopper to bring in the rest of the categories.
  7. Set the view type in Rhino to Shaded. Revit Geometry brought into Rhino
You can’t perform that action at this time.
