More data for Freeform Families Grasshopper

So right now I think the Freeform Element component in Speckle 2 Revit is very basic.

I have idea’s to add to the component and why:

  • Make it possible to add 2 or more breps into 1 Family. Right now it creates a family for every shape you put in there.

  • Family name - Because then we could actually see what the object should represent in Revit and we could make filters. Right now it is a random generated name.

  • Subcategory- If I push 20 families to Revit and receive them, I don’t want to open all the families and add + change the subcategories of all the objects inside the Families. We use subcategories very often to apply a material to an object.

  • Material - If people don’t want to use subcategories but still want a material to their object.

Let me know what you think!

Hey @Joelmick, thanks for this.

You are right, the current implementation is quite basic and these suggestions look good!

I’ve already opened an issue for the first point: Objects: Allow freeformElements to contain multiple geometries · Issue #859 · specklesystems/speckle-sharp · GitHub

We’ll investigate the rest and see what we can come up with :slight_smile:
