For Speckle V1, we’ve made a Dynamo script to read family data in the Revit model and pour it in a stream so we could use it in GH. For Speckle V2, this is already provided by the Speckle Revit add-in, which is great!
A suggestion for improvement would be to also add other data to the Revit Families & Types filter (see Revit screenshot). When receiving this stream (stream 1 in GH), mainly the category, family and name are in the stream, but other interesting data (such as the width of a wall, which is part of the family type object in Revit) is not in that stream. When receiving a family instance in GH (stream 2 in GH), then it’s possible to retrieve all this extra data.
In short, would it be possible to add more data to the Revit Families & Types selection filter?
- Add all available family data to the stream?
- Or choose which families or data to send instead of sending everything?
Small remark, why do some family categories (like Structural Columns, Structural Framing and Windows) contain a renderMaterial and other families do not?
