Hey @Community !
This sprint our team is working on improving the interoperability of our Rhino and Grasshopper connectors when sending data to Revit.
Did you even know? You can create and update BIM elements in Revit directly from Rhino and Grasshopper?
This feature is currently called schema builder, here docs on how it currently works in Grasshopper and here in Rhino. It basically lets you attach metadata to geometry in your document, so that when it’s received in Revit it is then converted as a BIM element.
You can use it to send lines as walls, points as adaptive components, breps as direct shapes and much more!
@AlanRynne is working on exposing each “Create Schema Object” entry via a simple GH toolbar component for ease of access and use.
Similarly, @clrkng is working on adding UI buttons in the Rhino interface:
Both features are WIP and should make it into a release by the end of the week.
We have also thought to rename this feature just to “Create BIM elements” instead of “Schema Builder” or “Create Schema Objects”.
What do you think? Do you have any questions or suggestions on how to create BIM elements from Rhino and Grasshopper? Let us know!
