Hi, I've tried saving my rhino model in .sat and .dwg (options saved as solids) but when imported into revit, I still get an error "Mass only contain mesh geometry" hence not able to create mass floors. Please help.
you need to take route of exporting .sat file from Rhino, Import this into a family, Load and Place that family into a project.
Now you can create 'By Face' elements.
parveen, I would have to say that what you just posted is nearly
the most outrageous thing I've ever seen posted. lol
But still, I like this kind of thing because often times something
good comes out of a can of worms like that.
I don't have any .sat 3d drawings to try this out, but if it's actually
possible to put wall-by-face on something imported like that, I
would fall on the floor laughing.
First of all, if it WAS possible to do this, it would serve no purpose
that I know of.
I would like to hear from you what you think would be the value of
placing walls on an imported wireframe sketch.
I'll probably learn something out of this.
sure, you'll learn something out of this and to make you learn I have to write few lines.
Keep patience, I am preparing a detailed reply for your knowledge.
and you don't need to fall on the floor laughing.
Hi Parveen. I understand the method you proposed. But I can't create mass floors from a family? for example if i have a form of a tower 30m high. How do I create 10 floors? By Mass Floors right?
Why don't you create it in Revit? Can you post an image of the tower? Maybe you don't need to import this from Rhino.
Maybe. But that doesn't really solve the problem. I would like the option of being able to to work simultaneously on rhino and revit. I followed the video below but I still get the error and the person in the video doesn't. And I wonder why.
Thanks for sharing that video Joanna. You can certainly snap
Revit elements to simple imported forms like that, but for building
sketches, I agree with Alfredo, "build it in Revit". Use the sketch
